  1. Hi
    Just watched The Colour Room, my grandad Joseph Woolliscroft was one of the moulders for Clarice Cliff. He was spoken about in the book ‘ The Art of Bizarre ‘.
    Film was brilliant !!! Really enjoyed it. Thanks


  2. Just watched the film. Brilliant. Born and bred in Stoke. My grandfather was one of four who set up in the Michelin Factory in 1926, so you could say Stoke is in my blood. Thank you for bringing a bit of Stoke my living room in Kent. I am now homesick!!

    Thank you.
