Welcome to the Tramlines Residents page.
Since its move to Hillsborough Park in 2018, the festival has:
Fundraised £213,800 for charity | Hosted 68 work placements and internships with local students | Programmed 226 slots to Sheffield artists | Donated over £560,000 worth of tickets to local residents most impacted by the event
We’d like to say a huge thank you to the local community of Hillsborough Park for their continued support of Tramlines and we are committed to working with local residents and the council to help better the festival and see how Tramlines can be more involved in local projects.
Our 2023 Resident Debrief Session was held on Saturday 25th November between 10am-4pm at Hillsborough Arena, Middlewood Road, S6 4HA.
The session functioned as a walkthrough with the festival management team on hand to answer any queries. Please find a summary of the information presented below:
OVERVIEW TICKETS PARKING AND TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT PARK REPAIRS WET WEATHER PROVISION NOISE MANAGEMENT COMMUNITY TRUST
7th November 2023
We are pleased to confirm that the majority of fence lines have been removed today, in line with the timeline we set out in the last update in October. Because of the extreme wet weather we have had in recent weeks, two short lines of fencing will remain as a precautionary measure to prevent damage to waterlogged areas. The majority of the park is now open for use and we’d like to thank the local community for your patience and support.
Fencing around the footpath that runs from the centre of the park down past the Library will remain in place while Sheffield City Council (SCC) approved contractors rebuild and widen this path to 4m, increasing space for cyclists, runners, dog walkers and casual park users. Paid for by Tramlines, work began on 16th October and was expected to last 5 weeks, however due to the recent extreme weather conditions, there will be a 2-3 week delay.
Following advice from SCC’s Tree Officer, there will be changes to the current layout to protect trees and root zones, with revised placement of lampposts, new benches, bins and drainage gullies.
In the coming months, we will continue to do top up repairs on any areas of the ground that need attention in the future and we would once again like to reiterate the promises we have made to the community and which will continue to guide our commitment to returning the park to the condition we all expect:
We’ll get it done
We’ll get it right
We’ll keep you informed
Thank you again for your patience and support.
