Experimental drawing

with Sally Haynes

Come and enjoy exploring different media and methods using all your senses, not just the visual with experienced tutor and artist, Sally Haynes. Some art experience is required for this course and participants will need to bring their own 'art box' where Sally supports you to draw with all your senses and to develop your work in a variety of ways.

Jack of Newbury


doors 6:30pm

Jack of Newbury (John Winchcombe) was producing cloth on an industrial scale in Newbury during Henry VIII's reign, for export across Europe.  This left him wealthy and allowed him to buy substantial property in the area.  Jack was one of England's leading clothiers and part of the Berkshire gentry, and led local men to war in the 1540s.  His life story was mangled by a contemporary of Shakespeare's, but he was a historical figure of national importance.  In this talk, local historian Dr David Peacock will unravel the story of this colourful character.

Tickets are £5

Hungerford Jazz Forum

  26 April

Hungerford Jazz Forum

until 11pm

Have you got an idea for a mini set on Friday? That would be great and we will try to fit in as many mini sets as we can.

We have a PA, music stands, music books and a great stage set up so come along and join in the friendly and supportive atmosphere and play or sing.

If you are not a muso, just get in a party mood and support the musos as you always do.

There is a bar with good prices and don't forget that it is only £2 towards our costs to get it. Who else can say that after 16 years the price is the same.

We hope to see you there,

George and Andy
