Please note the change of our usual venue. Due to unforeseen circumstances The On Inn has sadly closed. We are currently looking for a new venue for Nelson Live Poets. In the interim, The WAKA (The New Street Steakhouse) will be hosting us. Please show your support for our current venue by purchasing something from the bar.
