Join us for a special Mum’s Night Out with Hollie McNish - a poet whose honest take on being a mum has gained her a huge online following. Embarrassed, a poem about breastfeeding, has been shared more than a million times.

Hollie’s frank, funny and deeply touching poems cover the journey of motherhood, from sleepless nights and scary responsibilities  to those moments of sheer joy.

Hollie McNish is widely considered one of the most important poets of the new generation, and has thrilled and entranced audiences the length and breadth of the UK with her compelling and powerful performances. At Worksop, Hollie will be reading from her award- winning book Nobody Told Me - a collection of poetry and diary entries  tackling the joys and challenges of parenthood with incisive honesty.

Watch Hollie read What's My Name Again? for Channel 4 News here >>
