Patrick Stewart delivers rousing speech in new Yorkshire Tea advert

Legendary actor Sir Patrick Stewart stars in the new Yorkshire Tea advert.

In the advert, which is released today, the award-winning actor delivers a rousing speech to pay tribute to a fictional Yorkshire Tea employee on her last day at work.

It was filmed in Harrogate and a number of employees from the business were invited to make an appearance in the 60-second commercial, alongside Sir Patrick, who is from Mirfield and an avid drinker of Yorkshire Gold.

Lucy Hoyle, Senior Brand Manager at Yorkshire Tea, said the Hollywood star was “a really obvious choice” for the company’s new advert.
