Registration: 10.00am – 1.00pm Sunday 12 March 2016 Thorner Victory Hall

Only Thorner residents will be allowed to queue for tickets

  • All applicants will need to prove current Thorner residency and also provide ID
  • We will not be relying on the electoral register as proof of residency. The open register does not cover all residents, is not up to date, and has been misused in the past
  • Please bring a Driving Licence if you have one. You won’t need to show anything else and it will speed everything up
  • If you don’t have a Driving Licence you will need both proof of current residence (something recent, showing where you live) and also some ID (something to prove who you are)
  • Ensure you have adequate proof of residency for younger residents (e.g. letter from school or savings account)
  • Household applications can be made by a single member of a household if the tickets are for each household member’s personal use. Adequate proof of residency will be required for all applicants not just the person queuing
  • Residents can nominate tickets for use by someone else (a relative or close friend) but must attend and apply in person and queue up with other residents
  • A maximum of 2 tickets per household may be nominated
  • Full payment for all tickets must be made at registration, preferably by cheque (payable to Thorner Community Fund). Credit cards will not be accepted
  • Information will only be used by Thorner Community Fund and Festival Republic for the purposes of ticket allocation and Leeds Festival access
  • Incomplete applications (e.g. no proof of residency, lack of ID, missing payment) will not be accepted

Please do not abuse the Thorner ticketing system:

  • We would ask you not to ask friends and neighbours to apply for extra tickets for your party
  • Residents should not seek to profit in any way from the distribution of tickets
  • Tickets are non transferable and not for re-sale
  • Former residents are not eligible to apply for tickets. Students who are temporarily absent may still be Thorner residents but grown up family members who have moved away from the family home will not be eligible
  • Residents who wish to nominate tickets for use by another person must take responsibility for those ticket users
  • Festival Republic and the TCF committee have already identified some abuse and as a result, residents have been barred from the festival

Postal and email applications

Any remaining tickets will be available by postal application. If you cannot attend the registration event, postal applications can be made to Wayne Young by e mail thornercommunityfund@gmail.com or post 1 Skippon Terrace Carr Lane, Thorner LS14 3HA. Postal applications can only be made by Thorner residents and should include:

  • The names of all residents who are requesting tickets
  • A contact telephone number and e mail address
  • The names of all ticket users
  • The type of tickets required (reduced price or full price)
  • Do not include payment

And afterwards

  • We will keep a reserve/waiting list – in 2016 we were eventually able to offer tickets to everybody on the waiting list
  • Let us know early if you can’t attend the festival. We will try to re-allocate your ticket if you let us know in reasonable time

Ticket collection will be 18:00 – 20:00 Tuesday 22 August 2017 – Thorner Victory Hall
