The Somerset Pavilion Appeal was launched with one vital aim: to raise funds for a stunning new development which will take Somerset County Cricket Club to the next level both on and off the field.

The new facility will comprise high-quality covered seating behind the bowlers arm, alongside a large bar and entertainment area, high-quality corporate/media facilities and a magnificent roof top viewing area.
