POETRY | HOLLIE MCNISH | THURSDAY 16 MAY

A special show from the Ted Hughes award-winning poet 

 

With Benjamin Zephaniah stating ‘I can’t take my ears off her’, Kate Tempest describing her poetry as ‘welcoming, galvanising and beautiful’ and fans ranging from Emma Watson, Robin Ince, Pink and Tim Minchen, Ted Hughes Award winner Hollie McNish is a poet whose readings are not to be missed. She is an Arts Foundation Fellow in Spoken Word, has garnered over ten million YouTube views for her online poetry performances and was the first poet to record at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios.

Here, she will be joining us to perform poems, read from and chat honestly and openly from her latest poetry collections.

Expect strong language as she talks fruit and flesh, guilt, sex, politics, death, breasts, transformers and more.

Books will be available to purchase at the event. There will be a book signing afterwards
