It's not just about the cricket: November 2021

It’s not all about the cricket here at the Cooper Associates County Ground!

We take huge pride in being able to offer venue hire with superb facilities that can be tailored to suit your needs for any event

It’s been another busy month for our Catering and Events Team with a number of varied events taking place.

Fine Dining Experience

Superb wine, fine dining, a magnificent venue and a stunning view. What could be better?

The Cooper Associates County Ground staged this special evening in the 1875 Club recently, with attendees treated to an outstanding three-course dining and fine wine experience, set against the stunning backdrop of the Quantock Hills.

Guests were welcomed to the venue with a glass of French wine ahead of their meal, and there was a guest sommelier in attendance to take everyone through the nuances of the evening.

There was a choice of three outstanding starters followed by Chateaubriand Bordelaise or Hot Portobello Mushroom Terrine.

In addition to this there was a choice of three superb desserts with an excellent cheese board to finish.

Throughout the night those present were treated to atmospheric live background music to further enhance the experience.

“It was a pleasure to join you for your French themed Dinner on Thursday and to spend a thoroughly enjoyable evening with such a lovely group of guests. The food was sensational and the service exceptional – a huge thank you to all of the team at SCCC.” – James Fineman, Wine Development Manager, St Austell Brewery.

“I wanted to thank you for such a lovely evening. I had the most fantastic time. Your hosting and organisational skills were amazing and I thought the evening went really well. Everybody I spoke to, and saw, was smiling and having a lovely time.” – William Collier, Case Manager & Change Champion, Somerset West and Taunton Council.

Commercial Open Day

Earlier this month, Somerset County Cricket Club held a special Commercial Open Day.

The free event was designed to showcase everything that we have to offer!

The open day was held to show people that we are not just about the cricket.

In addition to bringing you First Class elite sporting action, Somerset County Cricket Club is the perfect venue for meetings, conferences, dinners, parties, weddings and special events.

“From the moment we arrived, James Voisey and the rest of the staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. We started with a glass of Prosecco and a chat with some of the other attendees. This was followed by a presentation of the opportunities that are being offered and the ways that the Club and local businesses can work together. Following the presentation, food was served. This consisted of small samples of the typical meals available at the Club, which were delicious. Even at this short event we met a number of really good local businesses that we will link up with. We finished with a tour of the ground. A really enjoyable afternoon. Thank you to all at Somerset CCC.” – Chris Kille, BPM Contracting Services.

18th and 90th Birthday Parties

The Cooper Associates County Ground is the perfect venue for your party.

In November, we staged parties at both ends of the age spectrum.

We staged a special 18th birthday party in the 1875 Club, which received the following feedback:

“They had the best time. Anna was brilliant and the whole thing went so well. Thanks so much for help to make it such a successful evening.” – Kate James, event organsier.

The venue also hosted a 90th birthday party.

Sue Mann, who organised the event said: “I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for the wonderful time we had on Saturday for my uncles 90th birthday. The buffet was fantastic and your staff were excellent. You all made it a very special occasion.”

Taunton Deane Liberal Democrats

Taunton Deane Liberal Democrats held their AGM and Dinner at The Cooper Associates County Ground earlier this month.

The annual dinner featured guest speaker Daisy Cooper MP, Deputy Leader of the LibDems and party Spokesperson for Education.

“Thank you and your wonderful team so very much for a really enjoyable evening, all our guests had a great time and said that both your team and the food were fantastic.” – Pippa Earl, Events Organiser TDLD, PA to Gideon Amos OBE.
