Ayr Rugby Football Club

Preparations are well under way for Friday and Saturday's Land O'Burns Weekender at Millbrae!

Get your tents looked out for a weekend of camping, beach rugby, live music, locally-sourced and freshly made food and the Land O'Burns Beer Festival, all in the relaxed, friendly and historic surroundings of Alloway.

Friday night will see an opening party in the marquee at Millbrae featuring Neil Diamond and Friends tribute act, before the best men's and women's teams in Scotland battle it out on a specially constructed sand pitch (350 tonnes of sand are being going into it!) to be crowned Land O'Burns Beach Rugby champions on Saturday, with the Burns Monument providing the stunning backdrop.

Independent craft beer, real ale and cider from across Scotland, gin cocktails by the Newmarket, wine and prosecco bars and plenty of non-alcoholic refreshments will be part of the beer festival, which last year attracted 1000 visitors, and will run from 12pm till 8pm.

Flaming Indulgence wood-fired oven pizzas, as well as food from No 22 Bar & Grill, will be available.

A shuttle bus will operate on Saturday between Ayr train station (from the Station Road side) and the club, 12pm-6pm.

Tickets are on sale through our club shop and are available on the gate, with £10 non-camping and £20 camping. These tickets give you access to all events across the weekend. U18s are free.

Land O'Burns Weekender is part of the month-long Burns an' a' That festival, and proceeds from the beach rugby tournament will go to Ayr Community Rugby Trust, which promotes and develops youth rugby in South Ayrshire.
