We are Riot Communications
An award-winning consumer communications agency
Specialising in Culture and Entertainment brands



We have launched careers, created media storms, made campaigns social, written beautiful copy, broken news, built brands, made videos, arranged prize ceremonies, and won many awards.


Our background is in books, but we are fanatical about the arts in many different forms and are spreading our wings into theatre, exhibitions, TV and film. We are passionate about our work and only represent products we believe in.


The way we consume media has changed and our campaigns are therefore fully digitally-integrated. More than that, our work is truly bespoke – every campaign is conceived from scratch – and our agency is deliberately small to ensure our enthusiasm for a project never gets diluted.


In addition to a haul of National Publishers’ Publicity Circle Awards, we scooped Publicity Campaign of the Year at The Bookseller Industry Awards 2012 for our work on Charles Dickens: A Life by Claire Tomalin. The campaign was also a finalist in the PRWeek Awards 2012.


Just a few examples of our creative campaign work

We are incredibly happy about our decision to work with Riot. Their professional and knowledgeable, yet personal approach to broadening the awareness of the Moomins in the UK has met all our expectations and more. Their positive attitude makes the most challenging of tasks seem like a lark. They are quick and fun too!

Sophia Jansson, Creative Director, Moomin Characters Ltd

I have nothing but praise and admiration for the way Riot Communications handled the launch of my appointment as Waterstones Children’s Laureate. The media coverage was excellent and with their unfailing good humour and support behind me, I felt I hit the ground running.

Riot Communications has made a first class job of promoting The Desmond Elliott Prize and we are delighted with their service.

Riot Communications provide a master class in how to do PR.

Georgina Capel, Capel & Land Literary Agency

Riot Communications provides all that you want from a PR agency but so rarely find. They take time to understand a client and provide a truly bespoke service. They are dedicated and work tirelessly on campaigns, sniffing out every media opportunity. Results always surpass expectations and on top of all this they provide excellent value

Fiona Allen, Head of PR and Communications, Waterstones

Riot Communications blow other PR companies out of the water. They are the first PR team I’ve ever worked with who over-deliver on their original promise.
