    FILM: LADYBIRD (MA15+) in our Armchair Cinema 

    In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.


    P.S. We can also help out with finding your mum the ideal gift with our fresh range of pretty and purposeful goods.  Gardener, cook, booklover, foodlover, homemaker, just your mum - there's likely something to suit.  (Half of us at Nest are mums and we pretty much stock Nest with things we'd love for ourselves)

    Vigenser & Martin Live on Stage 26 April

    Vigenser & Martin Live on Stage 26 April

    All-original and a bit wild, their style is rooted in folk but resembles everything else. 

    Close your eyes and you’d swear you heard twins, with weaving rhythms, tight songs, and harmonies you just can’t pick apart.



    Vic & Linds will be live on the cinema stage at Nest 

    7pm Show
    Pre show Dinner and Drinks from 5pm
    Intermission supper included in ticket price $35

    AU’s fiddler extraordinaire Lindsay Martin brings his virtuosic strings and velvet vocals to the fore, while NZ’s songstress Victoria Vigenser brings great lyric, driving rhythm and her sensational voice to the mix. They’re packing hefty and emotional punches, but with hands wrapped in silk, and songs to heal the scars.


    Both accompanists by trade, their shared approach to harmony and musicianship makes for a full sound. They met at a rainy festival in NZ’s capital one day, and have since worked and played across the Tasman to produce a long-awaited (…avoided) album of Vigenser’s original material. They set off on an experimental tour, and their duo show received such a warm welcome from audiences across AU and NZ that they decided to keep it up. Now they’re back with even more hooky new material- it’s bound to leave your heart jumping and your head spinning.

    Frank Burkitt Band 4 April at Nest on Australian Tour

    The Frank Burkitt Band are gathering their instruments and hopping over the ditch from their New Zealand home for a 17 date tour across Victoria and New South Wales. Following on from the success of their March 2018 Australian tour in support of their second album Raconteur, this tour will support their new live EP Lost But Alive (out 30th Dec). 


    “The sincerity and heart that emanates from his song-writing is endearing, to say the least. I believe people who are truly great at their craft make what they do seem easy”
    Janise Kumar - muzic.net.nz

    Starting at Yackandandah Folk Festival, they will perform in Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle and Tumbarumba

    Touring this time as a trio with vocals, guitar, mandolin and double bass, they will perform original songs spanning a wide range of genres such as Americana, swing, blues and folk. 

    SHOWTIME

    Thursday 4 April 7pm

    Tickets $35 include intermission supper - book here

    Pre-drinks, canapes, dinner or whisky nips are available from 5.30pm. Call 69482950 to book. 

    Frank’s songs often come with anecdotes and his rambling but entertaining introductions give audiences a back story to each song. Subject matters such as philosophy, space travel, nature, relationships, haircuts and colourful characters from Frank’s past are all delivered within expertly crafted arrangements, performed by fantastic musicians. 

    Frank Burkitt (vocals, guitar), Cameron Burnell (mandolin, lapsteel), James Geluk (double bass)
