Make Room @Waterstones, Cathedral Yard, Exeter, Saturday 7th October 2017 at 7pm.
Ruth's thoughts on Waterstones, Cathedral Yard
In July I spent a sunny day scouting around many buildings in the city centre of Exeter, looking for suitable venues for Make Room. About a minute after I had walked into Waterstones, busily making notes about the building, a lovely member of staff approached me, who just happened to be the Shop Manager! We had an interesting conversation about the building, which I learnt is soon to be taken over by The Ivy restaurant, and Waterstones will be improving and expanding their Roman Gate store. And so the Make Room event on 7th October, was a ceremonial moment for this special old building (which narrowly missed the fire that started in the Royal Clarence Hotel) - a thankyou and a goodbye before making room for the new.
