For this one-off event, we pair some of the finest, freshest poets around with live illustrators for a sharp, straight-talking night of poetry, projection and experimental art exploring the theme ‘hard work’ - inspired by David Shrigley’s 2000 book and this Festival’s cover artwork.
Hollie McNish’s poems have challenged stigmas around sex, breastfeeding and young motherhood, earning her a worldwide following. She is joined by Leicester boy and National Slam champion Toby Campion, and two female powerhouses: writer and columnist Bridget Minamore, and 2017 Hammer & Tongue champion, Theresa Lola.
They are joined live by illustrators Cressida Djambov and Jess Wilson who will illuminate their work with vibrant colours, quirky expression and a healthy dose of eccentricity.
