In-person talk: The Breweries of Newbury

In-person talk: The Breweries of Newbury

Wednesday 16 February | 7-8pm | £5 per person



There is no brewery in Newbury today, but there was a time when the production of beer was a major local industry. The talk will look at many of the breweries that operated in the town, some small, some large, some struggling on for a few years, some flourishing for a few centuries. What traces have they left? Come along and find out.



The speaker Phil Wood is a retired engineer with a passionate interest in history – he’s also quite fond of beer and pubs! He has served as President of the Newbury District Field Club (Newbury’s 150 year-old local history society), he represents the Field Club on Newbury Town Council’s Heritage Working Group, and is on the West Berkshire Heritage Forum.



This talk tie-in with the special exhibition ‘Barrels and Bottles’.



Tickets cost £5 per person and must be purchased in advance: www.westberkshireheritage.org/whats-on

Bookings close 4pm on Tuesday 15 February.



Places are limited as the Museum’s Long Room will be set up to provide some social distance between attendees. We request that attendees also wear a face covering throughout the talk.
