CAMPFIRE CLUB RETURNS FOR 2017:
Every Friday from May to September
A concert like no other… unamplified, outdoors and round a fire; surely this is the only way to really hear music.
Since the dawn of song, by the flickering embers and starry skies all walks of man and woman have gathered in song and celebration, to tell the stories and while away an evening. This is how it was, and at London’s Campfire Club, how it still is; acoustic, intimate. Every Friday from late spring right through to autumn we indulge you in the specially sourced talents of local and itinerant musicians from all over the world, nestled in several secret secluded leafy pockets of inner city London. Bringing the Nest Collective’s finest choices of artistry from the realms of folk, traditional and world music right through to contemporary song makers. Those that find it know something very magical is being felt and heard.
Keeping the campfire alive will be Nest Collective hosts and live music from some very special guests. Season’s acts include:
Rachel Sermanni | Samana | Kaia Kater | Piers Faccini | Bush Gothic | Josienne Clark & Ben Walker | Kentucky Cowtippers | TEYR | She’Koyokh | Leon Rosselson | Kit Hawes & Aaron Catlow | Kusanganisa | Haymanot Tesfa | Lisa O’Neill | Lewis Barfoot | L’Hijaz Carr | Sergio Beercock | Nadine Khouri | Harrow Fair | Havelock | James Riley | Baton Bleu | London Contemporary Voices | Norfolk Broads | Jeff Warner

NEW VENUES FOR 2017
From the Factory – Returning to our favourite hidden spot that hosted many campfires in 2016 TBC
E5 Bakehouse – AThe bakery’s spruced up urban backyard, which will be home to some of our Campfire Club events, has been transformed into an evolving kitchen garden, and makes for an atmospheric and unique events space.
Woodberry Wetlands – A haven for wildlife and people: 11 hectares of reed-fringed ponds and dykes. Only a five min walk from the densely built up areas of Manor House & Stoke Newington, the contrast between the surrounding tower blocks and the wild wetland habitat with old oak trees is almost unbelievable.
Glengall Wharf Garden – A community garden tucked away from all the noise, based on a woodland ecosystem, Glengall Wharf is a community garden with a certain summerly charm

"This event was phenomenal. .I can not wait until I have an opportunity to attend another one. It was well organised and the musicians were something else. I certainly didn't feel as though I was in Peckham, but some enchanted woodlands"Design My Night Review
