What we're about

We are all strangers until we become friends :)

If, like me, sometimes you impulsively like to do things without planning, and would like to hang out with some like minded people - this group is for you! It's great to meet new people and make new friends.

I'm hoping this will be a place we can do just that...

Any ideas or suggestions you have would be gratefully received here...

Anyone who came to the event Intelligence Squared built around it – when Jeanette Winterson, Helena Bonham Carter, Jason Isaacs,Sue Perkins and Tom Burke joined Sieghart in celebrating the power of poetry – will remember what a magical evening it was. Now, after huge demand, Sieghart is back with a second volume – The Poetry Pharmacy Returns– and once again Intelligence Squared is bringing it to all to life on stage. Whether your spiritual ailment is loneliness, heartache or anxiety, Sieghart has a poem to meet your needs. He will be joined in conversation by acclaimed novelist and broadcaster Sarah Dunant. With their signature warmth and wit, they will discuss poems from the new book, each one matched to a particular problem, whether it’s unrequited love, fear of the unknown or feeling daunted by the challenges of family life. And we will have a stellar cast of actors to perform the poems, revealing their power to connect us to our fellow humans, bringing comfort and hope. Join us for an unmissable evening and take the opportunity to have a poem prescribed specially for you. BOOK BUNDLES Book Bundles include one ticket for the event plus a copy of William Sieghart’s new book The Poetry Pharmacy Returns, to be collected from the venue on the night of the event. Praise for The Poetry Pharmacy ‘Truly a marvellous collection … There is balm for the soul, fire for the belly, a cooling compress for the fevered brow, solace for the wounded, an arm around the lonely shoulder – the whole collection is a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss’ – Stephen Fry ‘The book is delightful; it rightly resituates poetry in relation to its biggest and most serious task: helping us to live and die well’ – Alain de Botton Sarah Dunant photo © Charlie Hopkinson.
