Poetry Night Reading Series & Acoustic Performances

November 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

$20 – $25

he Poetry Night Reading Series & Acoustic Performance (PN-RAP) is in its second year, and is quickly becoming one of Thunder Bay’s best Sunday night events celebrating the arts all under one roof! Please visit our website and see “Our Shows” to see the list of Speakers by month and show:

Purchase advance tickets online for $20, or at the door for $25 (No pick-up is required) or at The Nest Studio office / store location:
4 Balsam Street (Beside Georges Market & inside Gallery 33)
LIMITED SEATING – we sell out fast!

Come out and enjoy a night with local poets and live acoustic music… and yes, we still have Birthday Cake provided for the guests during the evening’s intermission!

PN-RAP has featured both emerging and established poets from Thunder Bay, and occasionally from across Canada. It has become a hub for the poetry community and an entry point for new voices. A place for people to enjoy spoken word – one of the oldest arts.

The second portion of the evening is a musical performance featuring 3 local musicians in the round, and they entertain in a plethora of musical genres and their own custom performance style.

The fabulous Dawson Room at the Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel, located at 17 North Cumberland Street, Thunder Bay provides us with a comfortable venue and a great feature menu for the evening – seating is limited to approximately 100 people. The atmosphere compliments our welcoming nature with family style seating.

Everyone (ages 19+) is welcome and encouraged to participate by registering for a stage spot, mingling with us, or simply ‘snapping’ (it’s a poetry thing) or applauding for the musicians.
