The Nest Collective invites you to enjoy a beautiful outdoor concert with James Riley and Hannah Read.

Every week from May to September, we gather in beautiful green spaces across London to hear extraordinary music by artists from all over the world.

In the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, we come together around the fire to enjoy music, food, drink, and the company of others.

Campfire Club performances are unamplified, setting an intimate tone and allowing you to really connect with the artists and the music.

Join us for the season - enjoy access to all 22 of our London Campfire Club events in 2020 with the £120 Season Ticket (That's just over £5 an event!)

James Riley

Anglo-American and raised in London, James followed his roots back to Nashville in 2015 for a short trip – which ended up becoming a 2-year odyssey. Whilst in Tennessee he met Grammy-winning producer Matthew Odmark, and recorded his debut album “Transatlantica”.

Since returning to the UK, James has been building towards his the release of his new record, putting out teaser singles, creating cinematic music videos, and through a slew of live shows and festivals including Glastonbury, Wilderness, Shrewsbury Folk & Maverick, slow-burning his way towards national notoriety– and heads have indeed begun turning. The past 18 months have seen James nominated for no fewer than 4 awards – as well as yielding national TV and radio coverage, and international tours on both sides of the Atlantic.
