'The Club has met once a week almost continuously, come rain, hail, shine, no audience, no beer, double bookings, wrong guest bookings, ever since that Good Friday in 1964. There have been a myriad of guest artists from the great and the good to the purely outstanding, and it must be said on one occasion plain awful. The Singers Nights have brought on some excellent local talent. In the 21st century and still going strong ... Come along – you’ll enjoy it!'

'North Wales' premier live classical music venue ... Whilst venues such as Theatre Clwyd and Venue Cymru offer a small number of classical events, only Rhyl Music Club stages a series of 12 concerts every year ... One of the aims of the club each season is to support young musicians in North Wales who are thinking of a musical career ... We have sponsored school workshops led by our visiting artists who have also given master-classes as a prelude to their evening concerts ... We have always striven, usually successfully, to attract the very best performers we can afford for our discerning audiences. From chamber orchestras to brass ensembles, string, piano, wind and percussionist soloists to choirs and singers, the aim is always to provide the highest quality of live music outside of the main urban centres.'

'Founded on the 31st October 1996, and was initially known as The Feathers Folk Club ... The new name, Ruthin AllStyles Music Club was chosen to reflect the fact the club has always appealed to very diverse tastes in both music and indeed poetry. This means that in each session there is music that will appeal to everyone’s tastes ...  We also encourage new visitors to “have a go” if they should want to. And although the atmosphere has always been relaxed, when performers are doing their bit, the audience gives them full and quiet attention. Every couple of months a professional singer or instrumentalist visits us, and it can be a great inspiration to the members to see these seasoned performers close up.'

'Way back in the autumn of 1974 a group of people met up in a pub in Ruthin to formally set up The Ruthin & District Amateur Operatic Society, whose brief was to perform the works of Gilbert and Sullivan ... In 2009 it was decided to change the name of the society to “Ruthin Musical Theatre” – the word “Operatic” in the original name was thought to be possibly a bit restrictive and off-putting. But the aim of the group remained exactly the same – to present their productions of a broad range of musical shows to the people of the Vale of Clwyd.'
