A Weston-based music society celebrated their 40th anniversary on Saturday.

As part of the celebrations, The Weston Music Appreciation Society hosted the National Federation of Recorded Music Society's meeting and annual meeting.

Delegates and members representing music appreciation societies from around the country congregated at the town's Winter Gardens.

The meeting was followed by a joint presentation from Welsh composer Geraint Lewis and the co-editor of Gramophone magazine David Threasher.

Their talk entitled Take 99, used music from classical composers, Haydn and Britten, as examples of the influence recordings have on the listeners lives and how it can give them a better appreciation of music.
