Magpie’s Nest festival: a celebration of folk & roots

Music will surround you at Magpie’s Nest mini-fest

UnampliFire Festival in Deptford was such a success with music fans that The Nest Collective added a winter mini-festival to their annual events schedule. Add a rebrand to the mix, and we get Magpie’s Nest mini-festival 2021.

Magpie’s Nest 2021 will be held at Grand Junction in Paddington, London, on Saturday, November 20, 2021. As the event unfolds, you will be able to wander between the impressive Nave Stage and the intimate Crypt Stage with music surrounding you and echoing through the stunning halls.

The line-up for Magpie’s Nest 2021 is:

Martha Tilston
Rihab Azar
Cecilia Ndhlovu
Old Baby Mackerel
Bird in the Belly
Georgia Duncan
Sarah Smout
Thom Ashworth

Tickets cost £33 and you can buy them online. The event is due to run from 3:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Singing With Nightingales

The Nest Collective is also responsible for the Singing With Nightingales series in Sussex and Gloucestershire. They are spellbinding trips into the forest with Sam Lee and guest musicians. In the evening, you can enjoy fireside food, songs, and stories, before journeying deeper into the woods in the dark. What follows is an extraordinary collaboration between musicians and nightingales. Tickets for events in April and May 2022 are available now.
