Award-Winning Tim Bonython is back with his latest documentary: THE BIG WAVE PROJECT.

Five years in the making, Tim follows a tight-knit crew of leading big wave surfers who are working together to attempt a personal goal that drills to core passion of surfing: Riding the World’s Biggest Wave.

“The Danger Level increases as we attempt to climb a mountain of water where the peak keeps getting higher” Alex Gray, Big Wave Surfer.

We hear candid, personal, no-holds barred accounts as the real fear of death walks side by side with ultimate personal glory.

The BIG WAVE PROJECT depicts the history of the how the sport has developed from humble origins to modern tow-in surfing with the latest challenges of returning to the simple art of unassisted paddling into 100-foot walls of water.

AMADEUS by Peter Shaffer – National Theatre Live Screening

Sunday 21st May @ 1.00pm @ Byron Theatre
Full $25 | Concession $23 | Student under 18 $10 | Group of 10+ $15
www.byroncentre.com.au/whats-on

Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play, captured live from the National Theatre, and with orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world – and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God.

After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, Amadeus was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.

Please note: This is a live SCREENING of the theatre performance.

The response to this event was overwhelming. From donations
of food from local businesses such as The Farm and Fishheads
to a retired lady who baked two fruit cakes to share – the
generosity of our community was overflowing. Two visiting Thai
Buddhist monks dropped by and blessed the food before local
Aboriginal dance troupe The Buyarra Dancers added a very local
cultural flavour to the day. The overall feeling of the day was

The response to this event was overwhelming. From donations
of food from local businesses such as The Farm and Fishheads
to a retired lady who baked two fruit cakes to share – the
generosity of our community was overflowing. Two visiting Thai

Last year the Byron Community Centre assisted in setting up a Coffee Box outside the Centre. What a treat! ☕☕☕

The Coffee Box is a welcome addition to the building offering hot drinks and delicacies to the community, as well as playing a vital role for local people experiencing disadvantage by offering valuable barista and hospitality training for re-introduction into the work force.

As a not for profit social enterprise we're using all funds raised through our Coffee Box for vital community projects and services.

Make sure to pop in for a coffee, tea or smoothie next time you're in town! 💕

A big focus of our work has continued to be in response to
homelessness, an issue which increasingly impacts upon
the most vulnerable in our community. Since the closure
of the Fletcher Street Cottage in 2015, many people have
been unable to access a hot shower in Byron Bay. Last
year we launched the Shower service providing free
showers, haircuts, care items, support services and social
connection for local people in need.

Last year the Byron Community Centre was very excited to take possession of the keys to the old Girl Guides Hall as an additional space to manage for community events. We have affectionately renamed it “The Byron Community Cabin”.

The Byron Community Cabin has allowed smaller community groups, who struggle to afford our conference meeting rooms, to meet weekly for little or no fee. Groups that utilise the Cabin include Byron Youth Theatre, Byron SLAA, Breast Cancer Support, Public Act Theatre and Pre Natal yoga. It is also a popular space for massage.

As a not for profit social enterprise we are using all funds raised by hiring out our venue, our conference meeting rooms and Community Cabin to fund our community services - helping those in need.

In the past year we provided families and individuals
with emergency assistance to help put food on the table, pay
their bills, keep the car running or access community
supports. Since our emergency relief funding was cut in 2015, we have
been able to continue to provide this service due to our unique
social enterprise model. Funds raised from our Community
Markets and Coffee BOX combined with the ongoing
donations from our community via the Byron Safety Net
Appeal have kept this vital service running.

Thank you to those kind folk who donated cleaning items for the Lismore Flood Relief on Friday. BCC dropped off a car load of products to The Volunteer Hub today.

Items still needed are: Squeeze mop buckets, dust pans, yard brooms and extra large & medium heavy duty gloves. Donations can be dropped off 10-4pm Monday-Wednesday at BCC.

The volunteer effort at The Lismore Hub is amazing. If you can lend some time think about helping out in the coming week. People still need a lot of support.

Also, if you want to provide support for Byron Shire residents please contact Mullumbimby District Neighbour Centre for details.

Glitta Supernova Invisible Lady at Gurlesque Sydney - The Glitta Supernova Experience “Lets get METAphysical” presented by Pretty Peepers Cabaret

Camp humor and sexual satire in a cosmic and lewd porno parody that’s strictly adults only.  Australian under-culture Royalty takes to the stage as the Fairy Godmother of Bent Burlesque, Glitta Supernova, & her fabulously demented one woman show collide into Byron for Tropical Fruits with a deliciously (im)moral autobiographical tale of a small town hippy girl lured into the hedonist post-
punk nirvana of late 80’s Sydney.
