National Poetry Day 2019

Our open mic lunchtime session returns for National Poetry Day. Join us and share your poetry with a small, encouraging audience or come along just to listen to some great Nelson poetry. All welcome, no charge, register on arrival if you wish to speak. Last year was a lively occasion with a wonderful range of speakers and we hope to see another great turnout for National Poetry Day this year. We are very pleased to have the fantastic Roger Lusby as our compere again. 12pm - 1pm Friday 23 August at Elma Turner Library.
