    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.

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.

    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)

With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew--and the ocean itself--from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below

    Live Music Spring Weekend

    Live Music Spring Weekend

    Live Music Spring Weekend at Nest 22-23 September: Cookie Baker Live on Stage Saturday night + King River Rising 6 piece groove band Sunday afternoon 

    Saturday Night 7pm on the Nest stage

    Contemporary folk singer/songwriter COOKIE BAKER comes to Nest at her most personal, personable and intimate best, previewing material from her upcoming album.  

    Tickets $30 include Dessert Supper at intermission 

    Buy tickets here

    Cookie Baker is a pint-sized melodic force to be reckoned with.   A walking, talking exercise in compact contradiction and adaptation. As gutsy in person as she is empathetic on stage, as careful with her picked guitar as she is unapologetic with her incisive words, as warm in her interactions as she is unafraid of bringing airtime to the hard stuff.

    More often than not penning songs of keenly observed lost love and found habits, Cookie speaks honestly of longing, loss, displacement and isolation, and the emotional debris resulting from these experiences.

    Raised on a farm by the seaside in rural South Australia, the deceivingly gentle melodies, cool wordsmithery, and sparkling grit of her vocals that audiences have come to adore have taken Cookie performing around Australia and brought her to share stages with many esteemed Australian artists, including Augie March, Kate Miller-Heidke, Ben Lee, Angie Hart (Frente!), Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything), Little Birdy, and The Audreys.
    Her ongoing collaboration with Sydney-based engineer and producer, Michael Carpenter, produced the cracking first single, Little Engine, paved the way for second single, The Summer (featuring Tim Rogers of Australia’s beloved You Am I), and the sweeping third single, Don’t Start A Fight. Don't Start A Fight is a charity single dedicated to Cookie’s best friend and musical right-hand man, Jaan Kiploks, a Cystic Fibrosis sufferer. All proceeds from the digital-only single will be donated to Cystic Fibrosis SA and other CF-related charities. 

    Cookie Baker is also a vocalist with festival favourite Sun Records tribute, ‘Sun Rising – The Songs That Made Memphis’, and is the founder and director of Melbourne-based contemporary choir collective, ‘If You See Her, Say Hello
    Playing only one show in the region and coming highly recommended by her friend Fanny Lumsden, don't miss this concert at your very own Nest, Tumbarumba.

    Sunday Groove Session 

    Melbourne 6 piece Reggae Groove Band KING RIVER RISING will be performing on the Nest outdoor stage aka the Deck on Sunday 23 September from 2pm

    Tickets $30 include roving pizzas

    BUY Earlybird Tickets here or take your chance at the door


    King River Rising are an 5 - 8 piece groove group that push the boundaries of Reggae Rock while paying homage to the genre’s predecessors.
    With an eclectic fusion of Reggae that effortlessly mixes with their Rock roots, Melbourne based King River Rising blends deep groove with alluring harmony.

    Often compared to artists such as Sublime, John Mayer and Groundation, King River Rising draw from many of the player’s deep roots in Blues and Rock; while putting their own spin on front man Ward Hancock’s love of Rocksteady and Dub. 

    After gigging their latest release titled “Lucid” relentlessly for the past seven months, 2017 has seen them cruise down to the Mornington Peninsula supporting Queensland’s top Reggae acts, play hot gigs and drinking cold beers at upper-class wineries in country Victoria and take tireless trips to Sydney and the Blue Mountains. 

    Listen here for an intro to their gig

    With an arsenal of enthralling originals and tastefully enticing covers, King River Rising will be playing Tumut River Brewery the Friday Night and at Nest Sunday afternoon.

    Book tickets to both Cookie Baker & King River Rising gigs at Nest and we'll shout you a drink on Sunday.

    FILM:  Just To Be Sure (ÔTEZ-MOI D'UN DOUTE)

    OFFICIAL SELECTION – 2017 CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL – DIRECTORS’ FORTNIGHT
    OPENING NIGHT GALA – 2017 ODESSA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
    The breakout French hit of the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival, where it premiered in the Directors’ Fortnight to multiple, raucous standing ovations, writer/director Carine Tardieu’s charming romantic comedy JUST TO BE SURE is a winning tale of parenthood, love and family, both lost and found.

    “Rich in comedy and human emotion. This one is for the grown-ups. A movie about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people. Tardieu builds her story with infinite but invisible care.”
    Paul Byrnes, THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

    “A thoroughly enjoyable experience for holiday viewing. Filled with amusing details and throwing up serious questions along the way, the principle one being the role of the father. De France, as always, lights up the screen whenever she appears.”
    David Stratton, THE AUSTRALIAN

    “The comedy favourite of Cannes. Invigorating and intelligent.”
    Pierre Vavasseur, LE PARISIEN

    Ophelia Daguin, ELLE MAGAZINE

    Erwan, an unshakeable mine-clearing expert, suddenly loses his footing when he learns that his father is not his father. Despite all the tenderness he feels for the man who raised him, Erwan discreetly sets out to learn more about and to find his father. He turns out to be an elderly and very endearing man named Joseph, who Erwan becomes fond of. As good things come in pairs, Erwan crosses paths with the elusive Anna, who he undertakes to seduce. But one day when he pays Joseph a visit, Erwan realizes that Anna is in fact his half-sister. This bomb is even harder to defuse because his adoptive father now suspects that Erwan is hiding something from him.
