Happy Birthday Somerset Pavilion!


The Somerset Pavilion was officially opened one year ago today!

A special opening dinner was held within the stunning new facility twelve months ago for VIP guests plus those who donated to the Somerset Pavilion Appeal at the Platinum and Gold levels.

The Chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, Colin Graves had the honour of officially opening the new building ahead of a four course dinner which was served in the impressive 1875 Club.


The Somerset Pavilion replaced the Old Pavilion which was originally built in 1881.

In the last 12 months the new building has proved to be a tremendous addition to the Cooper Associates County Ground, offering unrivaled views of the cricketing action and the stunning Quantock Hills.  It has also proved to be extremely popular with Somerset Members:

The Somerset Pavilion also houses the exclusive 1875 Club, the Media Centre, the Thatchers Roof Terrace, a number of excellent hospitality suites and the ever popular Stragglers Coffee House.
