Wilf Merttens

Wilf is our storyteller at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, and Leicester Children’s Hospital, meaning he travels almost as much as Amanda!

Wilf is a highly skilled writer and performer, winning many awards for his spoken word work, including Young Storyteller of the Year and Bristol Slam Champion. Wilf regularly performs at folk clubs up and down the country, and has toured with his rendition of Prometheus.

He is part of the team that runs the spoken word area at several festivals (including Shambala, BoomTown and Secret Garden) and has delivered workshops for the Royal College of Art, the University of London, and Dartmoor Arts, as well as countless schools and libraries.

“Wilf was fantastic and really helped my daughter who had been very anxious and unwell.”
