“I confess I have lived,” is a night designed to heighten our poetical selves and embrace plenitude through poetry, connections, music and the sensual delights of The Poetry Brothel London. Based on the auto-biography of Pablo Neruda and his epic adventures in 20th century historical/political and psychological reality, our engaging and fascinating poets will tap into their own lives to express poetry in its most fiery and truthful form. Expect delusion, panache, truthful insight, anger, delight, eroticism and magical splendour. The poetry brothel is known for nights of passion, art, pleasure, catharsis and eternal bonds. Our new location is a secret members club in Haggerston which was conceived to allow our Johns to inhabit their most exaggerated poetical selves. Embrace the outlandish sense of joy and desire at this month’s Poetry Brothel London.

Readings from the most compelling poetry performers in London.
Music by The Quivering Poets.
Tarot readings.

Imagine beauty encapsulated in the literary expression of a powerful psyche. Imagine purchasing a portion of a poet's mental anatomy. Imagine being locked in a perfumed room with a spirit and a flesh of your own choosing, jaunting through the alleyways and corridors of an artist's consciousness. Imagine sexiness and poems dancing together like flames with the wind.

The Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry away from classrooms, lecture halls and Ivory towers and places it in the lush, radiant and fiery interiors of a bordello. Based on the concept of the fin-de-siecle bordellos in New Orleans and Paris, many of which functioned as safe havens for fledgling, avant-garde artists, The Poetry Brothel presents a rotating cast of "poetry whores" each operating within a carefully constructed character. For a small fee, you can purchase a piece of the "whore's" poetical spirit and absorb yourself in the true nature of one-on-one poetry readings in back rooms and other secret and intimate spaces.
