Hollie McNish & Cleo Asabre-Holt
Wednesday 25 April, 7pm - 10pm
The Old Cold Store (The Vat & Fiddle), 12 Queensbridge Rd, Nottingham, NG2 1NB
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.
Hollie will be supported by fantastic Nottingham Spoken Word Poet poet, Cleo Asabre-Holt. Unafraid to tackle vulnerable issues such as mental illness and societal discomfort Cleo was recently awarded the prestigious M3C Scholarship to undertake a Masters in Creative Writing at The University of Nottingham.
