We love to champion people from around the UK and Ireland, who are following their dreams, making people’s lives better and bringing joy.

We’re here to support independent creators, makers, retailers, unsigned music artists, self-published authors, charities, community groups/projects and not-for-profit companies from around the UK and Ireland.

We will be bringing you new interviews every week with people following their passion who we believe in.

Mondays - unsigned music artists for Independent Music Monday
Tuesdays - charities, community groups/projects and not-for-profit companies for Charity Tuesday (currently on hiatus)
Wednesdays - self-published authors for Writer Wednesday (currently on hiatus)

Also in the future we will also be bringing you interviews with new groups of makers and retailers, so watch this space!

The Merryn world started out as separate websites; Merryn Magazine, Merryn Books, Merryn Charity and Merryn Music, but on 25th November 2017, all of the websites came together and went live on this website. After listening to feedback, we decided to combine them all together so that everyone got more of a chance of being discovered. Now you can view the Merryn world all in one place! :)


As well as publishing interviews and features, we have also produced Merryn Magazine, which was a free quarterly digital magazine. The issues only ran in April 2016 and July 2016 before we decided to focus on online content and the yearly Christmas Gift Guides. You can find out more here.


Although we no longer produce Merryn Magazine, we do produce the yearly Christmas Gift Guide, which launches each year on 1st October. You can find out more here.


The Merryn universe was created in 2015 after realising that we wanted to support UK and Ireland independent creators, makers and retailers. We love being able to champion people who are out there, living their dreams. This then led onto us also championing unsigned music artists, self-published authors and charities, community groups/projects and not-for-profit companies.

Disclaimer: Merryn is run as a hobby only, no money is received for any part of the website or for being featured on any of the Spotify playlists. This has been the case since Merryn was started in April 2016.


The word Merryn is Cornish for "joyful", which we loved because everyone needs a little joy in their life!
