The details...

After her sell-out gig with SproutSpoken at St Michael the Archangel's in April 2022, Hollie McNish returns to Newquay for a special daytime gig in the fantastic surroundings of Newquay Orchard.

Saturday 26th August 2023


Hollie is an award-winning poet, writer and performer. She is the Sunday Times bestselling author of Slug (and other things I’ve been told to hate) and won the Ted Hughes award for new work in poetry with her poetry and parenting memoir Nobody Told Me. She has two further poetry collections, Plum and Cherry Pie, one modern adaptation of the ancient Greek tragedy Antigone and alongside fellow poet Sabrina Mahfouz, co-wrote Offside, a play relating the history of UK women’s football. She loves writing and her live readings are not to be missed. Expect strong language.

£8 - Earlybird Adult (18+)

£6 - Teen Ticket (ages 14 to 17)

£FREE - babes in arms welcome
