Singing With Nightingales Festival


Live Music, Acoustic.

The Nest Collective invites you to the starlit woods of Sussex for a special series of duets with the rare bird itself - the nightingale. This May, join host Sam Lee and guest musicians in a rare and thrilling journey as darkness falls upon the woodlands of Sussex. Enjoy an afternoon of workshops and nature experiences followed by a campfire concert and the after-dark safari itself. Festival guests will be guided silently into the woods, not just to listen to these majestic birds, but also to experience improvised collaborations between bird and human virtuosi musicians. Very special guest musicians: Ayanna Witter-Johnson Matthew Barley Millicent Chapanda The evening includes: o Songs, storytelling and folklore with host Sam Lee and 3 different musical guests around the campfire o Promenade walks through the woods in small groups to hear our guest musicians joined in improvised collaborations with the nightingales. o Nature immersion, camp craft skills and foraging workshops from 4pm o A delicious vegan dinner available, as well as a fully-stocked bar! o Optional overnight camping, with breakfast and morning singing for campers. We'll also have a late-night campfire social with songs to wind down after the nightingale safari. o Return coach travel available from London.
