Event description
On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose

About this Event

The world’s most celebrated football genius and the most dysfunctional city in Europe were a perfect match for each other.

Maradona was blessed on the field but cursed off it; the charismatic Argentine, quickly led Naples to their first-ever title. It was the stuff of dreams. But there was a price… Diego could do as he pleased whilst performing miracles on the pitch, but when the magic faded he became a prisoner of the city.

The third film from the Academy Award- and BAFTA-winning team behind Senna and Amy, the film is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archive with the full support of the man himself.

CHOCOLATE TASTING with CHOW CACAO

Chow Cacao’s delicious organic, raw, vegan chocolate bars are made from fair trade and sustainably sourced ingredients. Handmade in our home town Byron Bay and hand-wrapped in nostalgic golden foil. The mix of classic and funky flavours will bring you back to your childhood, when coconut roughs and golden foil were a thing! Their simple and iconic packaging is inspired by the 70’s surf culture here in Byron Bay.

LIVE MUSIC with LUKE BENNETT

After having grown up falling asleep to the sounds of Fleetwood Mac, Tracy Chapman and Dire Straits, it wasn’t until 14 years of age that Launceston born Luke Bennett started to learn the guitar, and find his own way in music... from years of being a bedroom guitarist it wasn’t until Luke had finished college and adopted a nomadic lifestyle that he found songwriting to be a natural expression that followed.

Displaying catchy pop sensibilities that resemble Artists such as John Mayer and Sting and fusing them with the stripped back earthiness of songwriters such as Xavier Rudd and Jack Johnson, Luke Bennett’s sound is sure to feed the soul.

Writing songs that express the richness of life and its adventure’s whilst delving into deeper questions and internal desires, at just 23years this young singer songwriter is one to keep an eye out for…

Luke’s influences include Mark Knopfler, Lindsey Buckingham, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Sting and The Police, The Beautiful Girls, Donovan Frankenreiter, Josh Owen, John Butler Trio and many more...
