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 Minchin, to most of the UK's midwives, Ted Hughs 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.

Here , she will be joining us to perform her poems, read from and chat honestly and openly form her new collection, PLUM, as well as performing some favourites from previousbooks.

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, transformers and a lot of friendship.
