The Poetry Pharmacy is a place where everyone is welcome to immerse themselves in literature, prescribed by William Sieghart – the pharmacist.

Your emotions will be heard, and a poem, passage or novel will be prescribed.

As a society, we are beginning to speak much more openly about our feelings, thoughts and opinions, yet sometimes this can be difficult for everyone to do.

It can feel like you are alone in your way of thinking or your experiences.

The Poetry Pharmacy has been designed to make you realise you’re not the only one who feels that way.
