Pop Up

The Poetry Pharmacy comes to London!

From now until the 6th of January, visit our satellite pharmacy at Lush Studio Soho: browse an extensive pharmacopoeia of poetry pills, each hand made in Shropshire from banana paper and biodegradable pills, and designed to address emotional ailments from Insomnia to Empty Nest Syndrome.  Peruse the Poison Cabinet for darker decoctions such as Revenge, Humbug, or Shakespearean curses.  Explore our carefully curated selection of books chosen to foster wellbeing and creativity, and our varied offering of literary gifts and luxury stationery.

The Poetry Pharmacy Pop Up is a colourful grotto of bookish delight, and we can't wait to welcome you there!

Can't make it to London?  In celebration of the pop up, we've put together a list of London-themed poetry for you to browse - you can find it here.

How the collaboration came about...

11th December 2021 – email message via website 

Hello there

I was a judge in the recent Holly and Co competition, and I wanted you to win. Disappointing.... now everything is out of stock? Doubly disappointing. If it’s not out of stock but a system error and you would like to sell me stuff drop me a line. Mark Constantine x

This came out of the blue after the Poetry Pharmacy had been on an Independent Business Award shortlist for the High Street Shop award in a competition run by entrepreneur and champion of small businesses Holly Tucker. We had no idea that Lush were judging us and had come as secret shoppers earlier in 2021.  


So started a developing friendship with Mark, and then more widely, members of the Lush team with our tiny business in Bishop’s Castle in Shropshire.  We are absolutely over the moon to have been invited to take over the Lush London HQ front-of-house in Beak Street, and so grateful to all our good friends at Lush who have generously created the space and supported us along the way!  Maya is the face of the Poetry Pharmacy at Lush is already doing an amazing job down there - you are warmly invited to come and see us!
