In the first of a series looking at quirky Brentford businesses in partnership with Brentford Chamber of Commerce, we interview Anna Ward of DYC Touring.
Who are you?
DYC Touring offers Music & Entertainment Industry Transportation Services.
We have been in Brentford for approximately 3 years. We supply specially adapted vehicles (Splitter Buses) for the Music & Entertainment Industries, to enable Bands, Artists and their Crew to travel in luxurious surrounds, & carry all equipment / Luggage needed for a complete Tour of the UK and Europe. We also supply Drivers, Tour managers and Crew.
Where is your business in Brentford and how did it get there?
Dock Road, formerly Boston House Catherine Wheel Road. We arrived in Brentford via an introduction from a local colleague.
What brought you to this business?
Where do you live and why?
Isleworth, because it is local to my work, and I like the area.
What about Brentford helps your business?
Transport Links including an Overground railway & good Bus services.
How do you like Brentford?
It’s a nice place – I’ve been down here for many years, mainly by the waterside. Brentford still retains a lot of its original features, such as old working Boatyards and of course the Canal. It’s close enough to Central London, and yet still far away enough to relax.
What’s your favourite part?
How are you involved in the community?
We offer our services at a discount to local residents, and we like to help out in any way we can.
How do you see your future?
Growth, success, early retirement!
Would you move away and if so, why?
No. No need. Everything we need is here.
Three words describing Brentford?
Original, quirky, and real!
