“Pin Drop is a wonderful and rare conception.  It provides us with a special opportunity to celebrate the short story on its own unique terms.  The perfect antidote to the sound-bite culture.”  William Boyd

Pin Drop presents world-leading authors and actors reading short stories to live and studio audiences in London, New York & LA.

Our award-winning narrators include Julian Barnes, William Boyd, Lionel Shriver, Sebastian Faulks, Alistair McGowan, Prunella Scales, Ben Okri and Russell Tovey, who read against the backdrop of iconic locations including the Royal Academy of Arts, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, Soho House, the Houses of Parliament and BAFTA 195.

Pin Drop is re-packaging the short story for modern times and revolutionising the art of storytelling. In a hyper-connected world, we bring a powerfully human experience to new audiences who embrace the uncomplicated ethos at the heart of Pin Drop.


What’s on next?
