Last Chance To Buy Weekend And Day Tickets For Leeds Festival

With over six month to go until Reading & Leeds Festivals 2021, taking place August Bank Holiday Weekend, excitement for the event is rising with the news that Reading Festival tickets have completely sold out!

For those who didn’t manage to secure a Reading Festival ticket, the same unmissable line-up can be seen across the whole weekend at Leeds Festival, with very limited day and weekend tickets still available.

Leeds is now the only ticket available to see UK festival performances from headliners Stormzy, Liam Gallagher, Post Malone, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Disclosure and Queens of The Stone Age to name just a few from the incredible 2021 line-up.

With hundreds of acts set to play, Reading & Leeds has again proven to be THE festival weekend of the summer – defining and celebrating the sounds of modern ground-breaking music, as well as a world-class comedy line up.

Festival-goers should now be planning their weekends by signing up to the newsletters at www.readingfestival.com and www.leedsfestival.com or via the official Reading & Leeds Festival app, available to download now on Android and iOS.

Reading west MP travels to 30 nations in 7 months but hasn’t isolated once

The Reading West MP, President for COP26 (the next annual UN climate change conference) and Minister of State at the Cabinet Office Alok Sharma has travelled to 30 countries this year, including at least six on the red list, without having to isolate.

While many of you have spent time quarantine at expensive hotels set up by the government, Sharma, the MP for Reading West, has been given a ministerial exemption from hotel quarantine after every trip, while ordinary travellers face fines of £10,000 for such breaches.

This is one again and example of the “one rule for them” culture that members of the cabinet enjoy under PM Boris Johnson’s leadership.

Others have also questioned why at least some meetings couldn’t been done virtually – which would have also helped to reduce greenhouse emissions.

It seem to us that the double standards in a failing traffic light system poorly planned with little common sense has resulted in ministers not bothering to comply under a status justification.
