It includes records of decision making and financial transactions through minute books and accounts; some details of those involved in the club through subscriber information (closed due to the Data Protection Act) and catalogues of works played, along with programmes, tickets and publicity materials.

In the 1960s they made links with the College of Technology's Music Department, and for a while students participated concerts as part of their programme. In 1983 when looking for new accommodation they settled in St Paul's Hall on the University Campus. The Society has invited, and continues to invite many eminent musicians to give recitals, and over the years Benjamin Britten, Kathleen Ferrier and Paul Robeson have played concerts for them.
