For one night only Kate Tempest and Hollie McNish bring an evening of readings and poetry to the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs.
The irresistible rise of Kate Tempest has been truly remarkable. Starting at age 16, she is now a respected playwright, novelist, poet and recording artist: already under her belt are two albums, two collections of poetry, three critically acclaimed plays and the Ted Hughes Prize for her epic narrative poem Brand New Ancients which was sold out when performed at the Royal Court in 2014.
Kate will be reading from her latest collection of poetry, Hold Your Own.
Supporting Kate is internationally acclaimed poet and spoken word artist Hollie McNish. Reciting words of love, politics, race, breasts and all that comes in between, Hollie was UK Slam poetry champion in 2009, representing the UK and finishing third behind Canada and the USA in the World Poetry Slam Finals in Paris.
A very special evening of spoken word that brings together two of UK's most incisive and articulate urban wordsmiths.
