Hear founder of National Poetry Day William Sieghart read from his new book The Poetry Pharmacy and speak about the experiences which lead to its publication.

Since 2014, William has spent thousands of hours in consultation with individuals across the length and breadth of Britain, prescribing short, powerful poems for all manner of spiritual ailments.

Through a process of constant honing, he has produced the definitive selection presented in The Poetry Pharmacy.

To celebrate its publication and the opening of Second Home Holland Park, we’ll be serving up apothecary cocktails and poetry elixirs from Mama Xanadu.

Drawing on the prescriptive nature of William's work, the cocktails will be made with botanical ingredients that have traditionally been used to treat ailments of the body and mind.

This is a private event
