Saturday Sessions at The Open

Open Championship Saturday and the biggest night of our Open Championship entertainment and the highlight of the biggest party weekend in Ayrshire featuring three live music stages, two bars and our pop up Tartan Tapas Café! 

The venue doors opens at midday on the Saturday through til five and then we close to get ready for the evening party night.

One Ticket | Two Bars | Three Rooms  

From six til midnight (we're getting old so none of this three in the morning malarky!) with five live bands on two stage and DJs in both rooms, celebrate a unique experience with the olden glories of past Open Championships with the sounds of the Seventies and Eighties brought to life in Troon Concert Hall! 

Main Hall Live music with DJs and three superb Tribute Bands featuring the sounds of Deacon Blue, David Bowie and Simple Minds with food and another bar in the Walker Hall with more live music and dancing and chill out in the Tartan Tapas Sunset Café with a meal and prosecco overlooking the beach.

With almost 700 tickets sold already, there are less than 100 advance tickets on sale and then it will be door sales only subject to capacity. Please note that unfortunately we cannot allow readmission during the night.
