    Having made his peace with the BBC, he's presented programmes on all the corporation's national radio networks, and his broadcasting work has won two Sony Radio Academy awards.

    Glenn Wool 'The Tiny Kings Of Winter'
    Glenn Wool: The Tiny Kings of Winter

    Effortlessly funny with affability other comedians can only dream of” ; The Guardian

    Imaginatively funny and original, Wool sets the standards at the Fringe” ; The Telegraph

    In his latest show, Glenn aims his mind's eye back over the last 4 years of tumultuous change in his life, dredging laughs from memories as he contemplates the sheer speed in which it all shifted into something so different.

    Glenn burned his party lifestyle to the ground and from the ashes emerged a phoenix of personal responsibility that includes a wife, two kids and a nice little house in the countryside.

    His show “The Tiny Kings of Winter” is an hour of unsettling stories about settling down!

    Stand-up comedy from a true master of the art.

    Growing up, growing out, and dropping off (kids at school), getting older dumber and wiser in equal measures – they are all subjected to Glenn's hilarious take on life.

    It might be his life, but it's a life to which we can all relate!

    Glenn has been seen on Mock The Week8 Out of 10 CatsThe John Bishop ShowThe Russell Howard ShowDoug Stanhope’s The Comedians’ Comedian’s Comedians and been heard on Freestyle with Frankie Boyle (who he has supported on tour), WTF with Marc Maron &Richard Herring's Podcast.

    The Blackheart OrchestraThe Blackheart Orchestra

    Award-winning British songwriters, composers and multi-instrumentalists, Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington are The Blackheart Orchestra.

    If you want to cite influences, you could credit Mike OldfieldLaurie AndersonTori Amos or Michael Nyman but, the fact is, The Blackheart Orchestra is unique -  with a sound and style all of its own.

    “Beautiful, powerful and inspiring”- Genesis Legend Steve Hackett

    The Blackheart Orchestra is a two person orchestra playing up to 13 instruments in their unique live show.
    Their symphonic use of vintage synthesisers, acoustic and electric guitars, mandola, bass, bowed guitar and percussion, piano, organ, omnichord and melodica creates powerful, highly emotional music that has been described as a modern day Pink Floyd, a more accessible Portishead and with many comparisons to the creativity of Kate Bush.

    Their highly acclaimed album Mesmeranto entered the Official UK Rock Chart at No.18, hailed as:

    “A mesmerising powerhouse” “An avant-garde musical utopia” and “A life-enhancing listening experience”.

    Singer Chrissy Mostyn was voted No.8 in a UK female vocalist poll and named “One of the most extraordinary voices singing anywhere today”.

    The pioneering duo blend musical styles seamlessly sidestepping boundaries to create music huge enough to fill a cathedral. Well known for producing music beyond all easily marketed genres, their multi-instrumental sonic landscapes have always been too unpredictable for pop, too adventurous for the mainstream and too plain weird for folk. Fusing acoustic fragility and pulsing electronica, The Blackheart Orchestra bring together stringed instruments with '80s synthesisers and classical influences.

    A treat for the eyes as well as the ears: to witness two people become an “orchestra”; seamlessly, almost invisibly, switching vocals and instruments between them is as mesmeric to watch as their music is hypnotic to hear.

    Their four critically acclaimed albums and mesmerising live shows have won them obsessive worldwide fans, plaudits from musical giants and placements on TV commercials and films.

    Chrissy Mostyn’s haunting vocals, the multi-instrumental playing of Rick Pilkington, plus their fearless combination of conventional and unconventional all reflect their self-created universe where art meets sound and words paint pictures that take you with them on their deep musical journey into the human psyche.

    “So stunning and beautiful; their music reaches areas of your head and heart that you never knew existed”- Metal Planet

    “Beautiful, powerful and inspiring”- Genesis Legend Steve Hackett

    Recent awards include:
    Best British Duoa nomination for the Limelight Progressive Music Award, voted in the UK’s Top 4 Best New Bands, No.4 in New York’s Big Takeover, Top 10 Albums of the Year and voted twice in Rock Writers’ Top 20 Albums of the year.
