Leeds Fest 2015 is on this year from 28-30 August. The Parish Council has 54 weekend tickets available at a reduced price of £40 each (a saving of £165) for Aberford & District PC residents only. Application forms are available from the village shop and by clicking on the link here. Hurry though as the closing date for applications is Friday 13 March 2015. As in previous years, if the tickets are over-subscribed, they will be allocated by way of a draw. IMPORTANT: If you’re not on the electoral roll and win a ticket, you will have to prove you’re resident in the village by letting the Parish Council see one of the documents on this list. Completed forms should be returned to the Village Shop.


The Aberford Almshouses Board of Trustees is looking for new members.  A Manager living on site takes care of day to day management of the Almshouses but Trustees have a very important role to play in providing strategy, guidance and ensuring good governance.

If you are interested in becoming a Trustee please contact Michael Oakes at Parlington House, Beech View, Aberford, LS25 3BX or phone 0773 801 3372
