Jack of Newbury: with Dr David Peacock

Jack of Newbury (John Winchcombe) was producing cloth on an industrial scale in and around Newbury during Henry VIII's reign. It brought him immense wealth and considerable status.  A contemporary of Shakespeare muddled his life story, but Jack was a historical figure of national importance.  Come and hear local historian Dr David Peacock, unravel the story of this colourful and important character.
