Don't just take our word for it

The Ambassador Theatre Group have worked with Direct Distribution (DD) for over 20 years and over this time they have helped us to advertise shows as diverse as Joseph and King Lear, as well as La Boheme and the Johnny Thompson Story. DD can provide targeted display for our ballet and dance performances where the markets are more niche. DD distribute 160,000 Season Brochures for us each year across Scotland to outlets appropriate to our target audience. I would be pleased to recommend Direct Distribution to anyone.
