We are Riot Communications
We are intelligent
We are different
We are transparent
We are award-winning
We are fun



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



PR has changed and we are leading the way. We offer fully integrated publicity campaigns that incorporate digital media as well as newspapers, magazines and broadcast. We keep up to date with the latest trends and technologies, so whether it’s books, plays, exhibitions, festivals, awards or an individual, we can create a bespoke campaign that has real impact.

Riot Studio

With our content creation arm, we can help you with all your video, design, copy-writing and photography requirements. From trailers and info-graphics, to invitations, brochures and beautifully crafted copy, we have a team of Creatives ready to roll.


We are ideas generators and strategists. If you have a campaign and are stuck for ideas, or want to pick our brains on the most promotable aspects of a project and how best to go about it, give us a call. We provide PR consultancy from the sharpest minds in the business on a competitive day rate basis.


Elaborate dinners, launch parties, journalist breakfasts, award ceremonies and Christmas parties… we’ve done it all. We can look after every element of event organisation, from finding the right venue, catering and lighting to invitation design, RSVP management and media photo-calls.

Digital media training

We provide training on all things digital including managing websites; developing and building an audience; and making the most of social media. We offer energetic and motivating one-on-one training sessions, small group workshops, and follow-up sessions to monitor and assist with your progress.

Media training

Saying the right thing in front of a journalist can be a daunting experience. Whether it’s communicating key messages or side-stepping tough questions, we provide expert and realistic media training to ensure you make the most of your moment in the spotlight.


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.

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.
