We are delighted to welcome Hollie McNish, the Ted Hughes Award-winning author of Nobody Told Me, back to Derby after her sell-out event in 2019.

Her new collection of poetry and prose takes you from Finnish saunas and soppy otters to grief, grandparents and Kellogg's anti-masturbation pants. Slug is a book which holds a mirror lovingly up to the world, past and present, through Hollie's driving, funny, hopeful poetry and prose. Slug is about the human condition: of birth and death and how we manage the possibilities in between.

The health and safety of all our ticket holders is paramount. Please read the following safety information about your visit to Derby Theatre: Health & Safety Information for Your Visit | Derby Theatre
