Campfire Club: Rachel Newton Live Music & Concerts

campfire_club_rachel_newton


This summer, The Nest Collective invites you to discover extraordinary music around the campfire.

Every week from May to September, we gather in beautiful green spaces under city skylines and listen to amazing music by artists from all over the world.

We come together in the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, around the fire with food, drink, music and each other. The performances are unamplified, allowing you to get up close and personal and hear the artists’ music in a very intimate way.


What the audience said:

“This event was phenomenal. I cannot wait until I attend another one… the musicians were something else. I certainly didn’t feel as though I was in Peckham, but some enchanted woodlands” – Design My Night

“Walking into a wonderland of nature with beautiful music and people, it made me feel wonderfully elated.” – Jane S

“What a magical gig! Sat around a campfire in the beautiful @Glengall_Garden as the sun sets listening to @JGhedi & @PiersFaccini. Lovely lovely lovely @NestFolk #Peckham #CampfireClub” – @showmethemunny

“The atmosphere was incredible, I knew I would love the music but I loved the atmosphere just as much.” – Anon

“Beautiful magical evening with #CampfireClub such a wonderful idea for unamplified performance around a campfire” – @soryahh
