Social distancing and restricted numbers for dining with strict cleaning routines are of course part of cafe life now.  We can seat 14 inside the cafe, 5 on the deck, 5 in each gazebo and 20 in the cinema when available.  Parties of 10 or less is another NSW rule we need to comply with.

    The Ocelots Irish Folk Duo at Nest Tumbafest weekend

    The Ocelots Irish Folk Duo at Nest Tumbafest weekend

    Irish Folk twins perform on the Nest stage as part of Tumbafest weekend


    The Ocelots (IRL) are heading back to Australia in early 2020 to play shows and festivals all over the country, showcasing a set list of new songs to be released on their album due out March 27th 2020. Situated in Wexford Ireland, 22 year old twins Brandon and Ashley combine to create The Ocelots. They have crafted their songwriting and musical experience together to produce a forceful blend of rich harmonies and bare, raw acoustic folk.  Their music perfectly embodies the breezy effortlessness of early Bob Dylan, and Simon & Garfunkel. 

    The Ocelots have performed all across Ireland, UK and mainland Europe and also toured with acts such as Jack Johnson, Glen Hansard, Hudson Taylor and Isaac Gracie.

    The Ocelots live set combines all that is great about folk music, so come and be charmed by the charismatic duo.


    Playing on the theatre stage, this will be an intimate but all inclusive event after a big day out at Tumbafest.   
    Tickets $15pp online Here 
    Cinema Doors open 8pm for 8:30pm show.
    Dinner from 5pm - Bookings recommended
