TAUNTON will be home to the house of fun this summer, when ska giants Madness perform in the town.

The band, one of the most successful British pop acts of all time, will headline a huge outdoor concert at Vivary Park on Friday, July12.

Famous for unique, quirky pop classics including House of Fun; Driving in My Car; It Must Be Love; Our House; and Baggy Trousers, Madness will bring their love of pop to Somerset.

The band said: “Madheads and all we’re coming out to see ya, summer wouldn’t be the same if you weren’t there to dance and sing to all our nutty sounds."
