Anne Dudley, composer and musician who founded the Art of Noize, creator dozens of movie scores including the Oscar winning arrangement for The Full Monty, and who was so nervous about her job she used to claim she was a VAT inspector, donates the Woolsack, which in medieval times was sat on by judges to represent its role in the economy. In 1938, the Woolsack in the House of Lords was found to contain horsehair, but its now got wool in it again.
