Somerset team up with ArtsTaunton
Somerset County Cricket Club has today announced an exciting new partnership with ArtsTaunton.
ArtsTaunton is a charitable organisation whose aim is to make Somerset’s County Town a vibrant, more attractive place in which to live, work and to visit.
Their mission is:
- to promote the arts for the broader public benefit by facilitating public access
- to remove barriers in order to progress the delivery and appreciation of the arts
- to put Taunton on the map
Following the announcement, Somerset County Cricket Club’s Commercial Sales Director, Suzanne Roper said: “This is an interesting new venture for the Club. ArtsTaunton has a clear and vivid vision of how to help improve the town, and we are more than happy to be supporting them in promoting the arts for the public benefit.
“With the new floodlights here at the ground and major redevelopment work planned for the town centre, this is a really exciting time for Taunton and hopefully, in partnership with ArtsTaunton, we can help to play a major role in that.”
Director of Development for Arts Taunton, Kathryn Davies said: “We are truly delighted to be supported by Somerset County Cricket Club for the first time this year. We love their slogan ‘We Are Somerset’, and believe the association of their esteemed Club with our passion to drive the cultural life of Taunton onwards will be a fantastic partnership for the people of Somerset.
“We held our first public meeting of 2019 at the Club on February 12th, and the venue and the warm welcome made for a wonderful night. We look forward to the year ahead.”
