Now that we’ve all recovered from the fun and frolics of Nest Online, we thought we’d share this year’s Epic Cheese Lipsync: A Little Respect. Thanks to everyone who pitched in with a line of the song, some kitchen percussion, or their fancy dance moves, to make this awesome video happen. And thanks to the lovely Cheese for organising and editing it all together! Without further ado, enjoy!
Well, you lot have been busy! We’re thrilled to see so many Nestlings joining together to create wonderful workshops, dramatic DJ sessions, perfect parties and all sorts of other alliterative ‘appenings (alright, that one was a stretch).
For all information on how to join in with Nest Online tomorrow, be sure to go here: https://www.burningnest.co.uk/nest-online to pick up your ticket (it’s free, but you will need it to get in!)
If you would like to see an overview of the day’s activities (highlighter in hand, ready to circle your favourites), cast your eyes over this glorious Google Doc.
All that’s left for you to do is dig out your glad rags, remember your cup (and something to go in it), and see you tomorrow, at Nest Online! x
We’re all missing our yearly opportunity to let loose, meet up with friends, learn something new, and share our skills and experiences with our fellow Nestlings. It’s to this end we created Nest Online – a day of workshops, events, parties and get-togethers on 30th May! We can’t do this alone though – after all, you make Nest happen with your contributions, every member brings something unique to our community!
Workshops, talks, whatever!
Whether it’s a yoga class, poetry reading, philosophical discussion or craft-a-long, you can hold your workshop in a Zoom room. Register nice and early to make sure people can see it and sign up in time and plan their day – we all know the pain of having to choose between two conflicting workshops at the same time! To register your workshop, please use this form to let us know by 27th May what you have planned and when you’d like to hold it. Check out the workshops already registered here.
We are also offering Zoom rooms to theme camps or groups to use for an extended period – whether you plan to hold an all-day rave, whisky tasting session (BYOB, unfortunately) or meditation circle, we have space for you at Nest Online. All you need to do is register your interest here by 24th May, and if you’d like to see who has already registered to host a theme camp, click here.
Burn, baby burn!
We will even be hosting a Burn in the main room, between 9 – 10pm! Alex, the landowner, has agreed to build and stream the flaming heart of our yearly celebration. What better way to look forward to next Nest, than all coming together virtually to set things on fire? We are hoping to have some fire spinners perform too, for a properly authentic Burn!
How do I join in?
To join in with Nest Online, we will need you to register for a membership on Quicket (don’t worry, it’s free!) – that way, we can send you the Zoom access information for the workshops we are hosting. We have also created a Facebook Event, where you can promote your workshop, team up with others for ideas, or see what we have planned!
We’re also looking for people to help us out on the day – think of it as Virtual Rangering! If you have tech/video skills, or can offer any time to co-ordinate, please get in touch.
All this information is, as always, available on the Nest website. If you have any questions at all, please do get in touch using this form.
Thanks to everyone who has already got in touch about 2020 memberships. Please remember that you have until 17th May (this Sunday!) to let us know what you’d like to do with your 2020 membership – any Nestlings missing this deadline, will have their memberships rolled over until next Nest. Please check your details carefully when completing this form – log in to your Quicket account to make sure you are using the same email address as your registration, and include your parking pass, if you opted for one.
We have already refunded some of our 2020 memberships, but we aim to have the rest completed by 31st May. If you have any questions or issues filling in the form, please get in touch.
We still have a few Nestlings who haven’t contacted us about their memberships – let everyone who might miss this email know that time is running out! Some figures for you:
Membership requests confirmed: 171/261
Refund/Donation Requests: 57
Refund/donations processed: 46
We also wanted to thank everyone who has left a comment or note when contacting us about 2020 memberships – we’ve received so many messages of love and support, it reminds us just what an awesome community we have. We love you all 💖
