Not Roxy Music and Led Zeppelin, but two groups of people photographed in the 1970s. The photos are from the collection of Val Lovibond. Firstly, badminton players at Rhyl Leisure Centre, Grange Road:

Above: Of the people standing, Val is the 8th from the left (long dark hair, white top). Also in there are Iwan Dodd, Mary Nixon and Martin Foulkes. Who else?

Below is a scene from a Confirmation event on Thursday 6th April 1972 at St. Thomas’ Church, Russell Road:

Val’s daughter Sharon is just about discernible, and one of the young men is Alan Evans. If you recognise anybody else please get in touch.
