New Local Author

It's Hay History Weekend this weekend, as part of a Brecknock wide celebration of local history, and Hay History Group are running a pop-up museum as one of the events. Alan Nicholls has chosen this as the ideal venue to launch his new book, a Historical Directory of Hay-on-Wye, which he has compiled from the census reports from 1841 to 1911. He's a keen member of the History Group, and has done a lot of research on the Cheesemarket and other local history.
Meanwhile there will be stalls at Hay Castle demonstrating traditional building crafts, as well as tours of the Castle.
Down at the Old Electric Shop, there will be craft workshops, and there's a lot more going on around town, much of it on a wartime theme.
