A gentleman usher from Henry VIII’s palace of Nonsuch pays a visit to the village looking for workers.  He needs a gong farmer, a food taster, a spit boy, a groom of the stool, and a wool dyer.  If you really want to get ahead, become an executioner! Come along and see if you fancy a change of job and a short life!
