Pin Drop presents world-leading authors and actors reading contemporary and classic short stories in wonderful locations including the Royal Academy of Arts, the Houses of Parliament, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and Soho House. Pin Drop narrators include Julian Barnes, Lionel Shriver, William Boyd, Graham Swift and Russell Tovey.  Pin Drop was founded by Elizabeth Day and Simon Oldfield.

“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 in the most congenial of settings.  The perfect antidote to the sound-bite culture.”  William Boyd
