Sat 1 Oct Emergency Poet


Beam joins forces with The Emergency Poet and the Community Food & Health team to offer alternative remedies for your heart and mind.

A mix of the therapeutic and the theatrical, the Emergency Poet offers consultations inside her ambulance and prescribes poems as cures.

In the waiting room under an attached awning Nurse Verse dispenses poemcetamols and other poetic pills and treatments from the Cold Comfort Pharmacy.

The first in a series of events exploring mental health and wellbeing as part of Beams’ Culture Cures project funded by Wakefield Council’s Creative Partners Programme.

This event is part of the Wakefield Lit Fest 2016.
