The Weston Operatic Society scooped up five awards at the David Beach Awards evening earlier this month.

The local amateur group, which will be celebrating its 110th anniversary this year, was praised for the remarkable retelling of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats: The Musical.

The famous West End musical is based on T S Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book Of Practical Cats.

The show was staged at Weston’s Playhouse Theatre, in High Street, in October last year.
