Who we are

Pindrop Events is a small limited company based in Ledbury Herefordshire, putting on high-quality acoustic music events.

Almost all of the events take place at a simple but beautiful 16C hall in the grounds of St James Church in Colwall called The Ale House. The concerts have a very special, intimate, friendly atmosphere, where artists and audience meet and mingle at close quarters.

The concerts give the performers the opportunity to present their art to a listening, attentive, supportive and appreciative audience.

The principle by which these events are staged is that musicians should be paid properly for the art they give us. The Ale House is a small venue, so ticket prices have to be set to make this possible. Pindrop Events don't do this for profit, but we would like to at least break even. The main expense is artists' fees, but we also have accountant's fees, SSL certificate costs, venue hire and insurance costs. Ken Appleby's personal investment in Pindrop Events in 2016/2017 amounted to £652, in 2015/16 it was £593.

PINDROP EVENTS LIMITED is registered in England and Wales, company number 8929847.
