More than 100 choristers, wives and supporters of Cr Meibion Talgarth Male Choir gathered at Summerhill Golf Club, Hay-on-Wye, to celebrate 40 years of choir history, camaraderie and fun. The MC for the evening was Viv Jones, top tenor and natural comedian. All the ladies were given a red rose and presentations were made to Val Whiston (accompanist) and Sheila Owens and Susan Williams (soloists).

The highlight of the evening was a presentation to Morwen Pugh (founder and Musical Director) by Ken Rees a founder member who still sings in the top tenors. The gift was a special brooch engraved with the words: To Morwen to celebrate 40 years of achievement, from her boys. Hywel Jeffries proposed a toast to the choir to which Mike Ford the President replied. John Edwards, first bass, gave a light-hearted history of the past 40 years and highlighted some of the characters involved over that time. The evening drew to a close with the top tenors led by Nigel Smith in a sketch featuring the personalities in the choir. Morwen led the choir in two songs before the guests sang the Welsh National Anthem.
