Drama in Performance and Marchants

As the organiser of a theatre-going course, Drama in Performance, since 1957, I have used Marchants Coaches exclusively. Our members have been largely young middle aged up to their nuneties, so comfort and effdiciency together with ever-pleasant and helpful drivers have been very important. With up to eighty members doing over the years literally hundreds of trips to theatres within an hour and a half journey time from Cheltenham, we have never had a serious complaint to make. Indeed complimentary comments have been the norm. Marchants have always been very understanding with their pricing and advice.Indeed, with the travel element of the course being such an important element of the course, I am quite certain that Marchants have contributed to the longevity of Drama in Performance.
