Glastonbury Festival Information for Pilton Residents Vehicle Passes

Village Vehicle Passes and your tickets will be available from Pilton Village Hall on Saturday 10th June 1pm – 6pm and on Friday 16h June 6pm – 8pm. Please note that as last year the sessions will be held in the Worthy Room (next to bar). Entry will be via the ramp from the car park and exit via the stairs. This will stop people having to queue on the stairs which can be dangerous.
Village Car Park – Can I also remind you that passes for the village car park are again limited this year and will only be issued to Pilton residents if their advance application is approved.
Cockmill Lane – This year a Temporary One-way Order will be in place in Cockmill Lane from Orchard Gate to Pylle Road (north bound). This will allow traffic to turn left or right out of Orchard Gate but there will be no through traffic from the direction of Pylle Road (Pilton). The “Cockmill Lane Pass” will again be restricted to residents of Cockmill Lane and their visitors. Passes will also be issued to people with exceptional need to use Cockmill Lane.
