On Lionel performing at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Somerset County Cricket Club CEO Gordon Hollins said: “We are delighted to bring a performer of Lionel Richie’s profile to Taunton. It provides the Club with an opportunity to showcase not only what the Cooper Associates County Ground is capable of, but also what the South-West region has to offer. The event will bring people from all over the country to Taunton and will no doubt benefit businesses here with a welcome boost after three challenging years.”

This is without doubt going to be an amazing night full of fun, bringing a smile to many. Something I think we could all do with!”
