Audiobook narration workshop series – More dates added for 2023!

After the success of the previous Audiobook Workshops, and due to popular demand, we’re pleased to announce more dates….

Led by award winning narrator Gordon Griffin, each workshop offers 6 participants the opportunity to spend a day immersed in the audiobook process. Gordon is one of the most prolific audiobook narrators in the world, with over 900 recordings to his credit. In 2017 he received an MBE from the Queen in the Birthday Honours List for his audiobook work. He is among ID AUDIO’s most prized narrators. 

The workshops take place at the our studio in Queen’s Park and include:

– Detailed instruction from Gordon on both the audiobook industry and how to narrate an award winning audiobook. 

– Tour of the studio and insight into the production process by an ID Audio producer

– Script preparation workshop

– The opportunity to get behind the mic and receive notes from Gordon.

– Complimentary teas, coffees and snacks throughout the day

Participants will leave with a professional standard audiobook sample to submit to castings and voice agents and these will also go into ID AUDIO’s casting database for consideration in future projects.

Here’s what our recent workshop participants say:

Spent a fabulous immersive day on the art of narration & audiobooks with the legend @GordonGriffin MBE at @id_audio studios. Thanks also to producer Alex & to all the other participants! I learnt so much!  Highly recommended.


This workshop was superb! I would highly recommend anyone interested in the art of making audio books to look out for the next one and go for it!


‘Highly recommend this. Gordon is kind, firm, inspiring and professional. You will definitely laugh.  You may well cry.  You will absolutely learn – from a master of his craft!’


Thank you to each and every beautiful person I met, learnt from & connected with today. It was a fantastic, magical day.


Well, this is nice. James Hogg is the ghost writer of the book

Bernard’s autobiography has finally been recorded (by the brilliant Gordon Griffin) and will be released on 1st October this year. It’s obviously a shame that Bernard couldn’t do it (we just ran out of time unfortunately) but Gordon’s done a fantastic job

Is it a coincidence that I read audiobook legend Gordon Griffin’s wonderful book a couple of years back and have since won an Earphones Award and been nominated for an Audie? I think not!

Thanks to Gordon for an excellent and entertaining read and for those library tours where we first met all those years ago.
