Small Business Saturday

Booth Books, set up by the King of Hay, Richard Booth, but now owned by Elizabeth Haycox, who has transformed it with comfortable seating, a successful cafe where the periodicals and SF used to be, and (round the side) the cinema. Concerts are held regularly upstairs, as well.
The building was originally a showroom for agricultural machinery, and in 1918 it was the venue for a dance to celebrate the end of the Great War, as it was the largest space in Hay.
