Best-selling writer heading to Attenborough Arts Centre

Hollie McNish

After a run of sold out shows up and down the UK, Hollie McNish will be at Attenborough Arts Centre to talk about her brand-new book, Lobster and other things I'm learning to love. 

The Sunday Times bestselling writer, whose live readings are not to be missed, will be at the centre on Sunday 24 March from 5pm to 7pm. Expect strong language and adult content, gift-wrapped in gorgeously crafted poetry.

In Lobster, Hollie brings her much-loved style to questions of friendship, flags and newborns, clocks, cocks and Volvos, shining a ridiculous and beautifully poetic lens upon all those things we have been taught to hate, and which we might just learn to love again. 

Hollie, who will be available to sign books after the gig, was the first poet to record at Abbey Road Studios, London, and won the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry for her poetic parenting memoir –Nobody Told Me – of which The Scotsman stated ‘The World Needs this Book’. 

She has published four further collections of poetry –Papers, Cherry Pie, Plum and Slug, which was a Sunday Times bestseller. Her new book, Lobster, and other things I'm learning to love is out now. 

The show is aimed at those 14 years and above due to its adult content.

Attenborough Arts believes that art should be accessible for all. For this reason some of its shows and events this year will be ‘Pay What You Can’, meaning that you decide how much you can or want to pay. This expands access to the arts for those who may not have been able to participate otherwise, or gives others the chance to support those who cannot by paying a bit extra.

There are multiple prices available for each show or event - buyers can select whichever price they can afford or would like to pay.
