Thorner Community Fund Update

Leeds Festival


  • The Thorner TCF ticketing system is closed for applications. Festival Republic will be soon be issuing e-tickets to the email addresses you have supplied
  • Tickets will be issued in batches and may arrive at different times even in the same household  
  • Do remember to check your junk mail
  • Please read the festival site entry, ID requirements and other conditions sent with your ticket before setting off to the festival
  • Please be patient and only make contact if you haven’t received your tickets by 16 August.  TCF Contact details are at the foot of this notice


  • Children aged under between 5 and 12 at the time of the festival will not need tickets as long they were registered when you applied for your own tickets
  • Children aged between 5 and 12 who have not been registered will not be allowed into the festival
  • Children under 5 do not need to be registered


  • Ticket users should take their e-ticket together with photo ID to the wristband exchange at Yellow Gate Bramham Road . Your ticket will detail opening times for the wristband exchange.

Car Parking

  • Thorner Resident parking can be accessed via the Green Gate – Nova Scotia Farm entrance.  Car park passes will be issued electronically along with e-tickets

Shuttle Bus

  • In the interests of safety, and to eliminate short, cold start car journeys, we would ask residents to catch the free TCF shuttle bus. It’s safer and greener
  • The roads are not safe for walking, they are not lit and have no verges in many places
  • The bus is for Thorner residents and their household guests. It will operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It will run every 30 minutes, or sooner if full, from 11:30 at the Mexborough Arms. The last return bus will leave Yellow Gate at 03:00 each day
  • Pick up and drop off points are as in previous years, The Mexborough Arms, the top of Church Hill and inside Yellow Gate
  • Please be respectful at the pick up points and allow those who are there before you to get on first
  • When getting off in Thorner late at night please be quiet and respect your fellow villagers

Further Updates

  • If required, we will provide updates and further information on this page over the coming days
