Beloved poet Hollie McNish – whose live readings are not to be missed – joins us as part of her Slug tour. With poems about motherhood, friendship and the best way to solo pleasure, Hollie’s readings are a chance to laugh, reflect, and enjoy yourself.

Hollie will be joined by fellow poet and crush Michael Pedersen reading from Boy Friends, his poetic memoir about friendship which Stephen Fry has declared ‘enchanting…astonishingly compelling…rare and to be treasured’.’

Expect strong language and adult content ribbon-wrapped in carefully and caringly sculpted poetry.

Age guideline: 14+
