Work is underway at the Somerset County Ground to prepare the stage and ground ahead of Elton's weekend appearance.

The huge project will see around 40 workers spend 96 hours over of the next eight days to construct and take down the stage, lighting and seats, and of the 12,000 seats 8,000 will be on the outfield.

Site manager Mark Wooliscroft, known as 'Wolfy,' who also co-ordinated the work for Eltons gig in Taunton  in 2006, said everything is running to plan.

He says that a new stage design means Elton will be closer to the crowd.
