Johnsons Coach & Bus Travel has also started a new fun initiative to raise money for charity.

Producing thousands of masks to commemorate William Shakespeare’s death, passengers are being asked to pose wearing a likeness mask of the famous writer, whilst on-board a Johnsons bus or coach.

After sharing their images on social media using the hashtag ‘bardonboard’, the coach operator will choose a monthly winner until April.

Contestants are encouraged to be creative and pick interesting locations for their photographs as the winner will receive a £20 High Street Shopping Voucher.

To complement the campaign Johnsons have named all their coaches and Stratford-upon-Avon based buses after Shakespearean characters. So look out for Tybalt, Falstaff, Lady Macbeth and even Titus Andronicus on the roads near you soon.

John Johnson, Commercial Director at Johnsons Coach & Bus Travel commented: “As a local established local operator in the Stratford-upon-Avon area we wanted to strengthen our ties with the historic town and do so in time for the special anniversary year in 2016.

“We aim to raise money for our chosen charity The Shakespeare’s Hospice by encouraging participants to donate to the hospice by texting BARD87 with their chosen amount to 70070 after they have posed with the mask on.

“We are really excited by this initiative and hope by the end of the year to have lots of photos of our passengers, on our buses being the Bard on Board!”
