Plum Book Tour: Hollie McNish
Thu 26 Apr, 8:00pm at Red Brick Auditorium
Tickets: £12 , approx running time: 60mins + Support
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 Robin Ince, Pink, Tim Minchen, to most of the UK’s midwives, 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 seven 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 new collection, PLUM, as well as performing some favourites from previous books.
Plum is a new collection of poems which charts Hollie’s journey from childhood to attempted adulthood. Expect strong language as she talks about fruit and flesh, school discos, guilt, sex, politics, death, transformers and a lot of friendship.
Books will be available to purchase at the event. There will be a book signing afterwards.
