Camber Sands Rugby Festival
Our Camber Sands Rugby Festival takes place on the East Sussex Coast, just a few miles from the historical 1066 town of Rye yet only 20 minutes from Hastings. Our Rugby festival is held at Rye Rugby Club & The Institute of Turf, which are both located just eight minutes from the holiday centre.
Our rugby festival is like no other event your teams will ever enter. The rugby pitches at The Institute of Grass (Grasslands) will be the best rugby pitches your team will ever play on as the event takes place on brand new rugby pitches, which have never been played on previously. Last season, over 100 teams took part in the Camber Sands Rugby Festival and it was a huge success. With our 2018 event, we have available up to forty rugby pitches, plus a club house or marquees, pub selling Sussex real ales, food village, BBQ and toilets.
