Bruce Forsyth visited Tulketh Mill in 1977* to film an advert for Stork margarine. The filming took place in the canteen of Tulketh Mill which, at the time, was being used by the Peter Craig catalogue company. In the advert, Sir Bruce extolled the virtues of the margarine whilst surrounded by workers munching on bread covered with the marge.

Filming took place on a Sunday and according to one article about the event: 'All the ladies concerned knew just how tiring film work really is, but, despite this, they agreed they had a most unusual Sunday'1.


What was Bruce's comment on the ladies? 'They were all marvellous. You would never guess this was their first time in front of the cameras - didn't they do well!'2


Were you there?

We want to hear from you!




* Not sure, it could have been 1976.
