Come and celebrate the publication of…
‘To Provide all People. A Poem in the Voice of the NHS’ by Owen Sheers
Written by highly acclaimed poet Owen Sheers, To Provide All People charts the emotional and philosophical map of what defines the NHS and the personal experiences that lie at the heart of the service; from patients to surgeons, porters to midwives. Made by director Pip Broughton, To Provide All People tells the story of a single day in the NHS, from dusk to dawn, with a single hospital at its heart.
Hear Owen in conversation with the director of the accompanying BBC film Pip Broughton, chaired by Professor Sir Mansel Aylward. The book will be available to purchase at a special pre-publication price, long before it is available in shops, and signed by Owen.
Filmed in Abergavenny at Nevill Hall Hospital and the upstairs of the Chapel, the programme will be broadcast in Wales and across the UK this summer. The stellar cast includes: Michael Sheen, Eve Myles, Sian Phillips, Jonathan Pryce, Aimee Ffion Edwards, George Mackay, Martin Freeman, Meera Syal, Celia Imrie, Tamsin Grieg, Rashan Stone Michelle Fairley, Suzanne Packer, and Michelle Collins.
Chapel café, bar and bookshop will be open all evening.
