Rod Stewart charity concert

Drivers in Taunton are being urged to plan their journeys carefully on Wednesday (18 June) when Rod Stewart plays a charity concert at Somerset County Cricket Ground.

With thousands of music fans set to attend, there is likely to be a significant increase in the number of vehicles on the road and several roads will be closed to allow the event to take place safely. This has been agreed by the event organisers, the police and the County Council.

To encourage concert-goers to leave their cars behind, arrangements have been made to run extra park-and-ride bus services from both Taunton Gateway and Silk Mills sites. For further details, please click here:

Road closures will affect Priory Bridge Road, Priory Avenue and other streets near the cricket ground from midday to midnight, while Bridge Street and North Street will be closed between 9pm to midnight. For a map of affected roads, please click here:
