Entertainment for the Byron Shire and beyond for the week beginning July 14

What's still on in the Byron Shire and nearby, this week...

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: The Pain in the Arts

The arts sector is bleeding out – COVID-19 is killing us. We are the most significantly affected industry, first to close, last to go back. It’s harder and sometimes impossible for us to adapt, and the federal government clearly couldn’t give a shit.

Wok This Way from the Yulli’s crew

Kyle Maxwell is a real dyed-in-the-sarong local – he went to both Byron Public and High Schools, and he managed The Northern before the amazing Wok This Way.

A touch of Heart and Halo from Tusta Das

Fair citizens of the Byron Shire… there is good news afoot. And it’s tasty!

From Paris to a leafy corner in Bruns

There are not many things more romantic than meeting your life partner in the ‘city of love’ and that’s exactly what happened for husband-and-wife team Anna Mortimer and Aymeric Albores when they met in Paris, where Anna trained and worked as a chef and Aymeric was managing restaurants.

Olives

There is an ancient tale from Athens that the goddess Athena gained the protection of Athens from Poseidon with the gift of the olive. Olives belong to the class of fruit called drupes, or stone fruits, and are related to mangoes, cherries, peaches, almonds, and pistachios.

Byron Bay Milk Company

It’s not every day a chef turns their hand to plant-based milk, and delivers that same passion for flavour into their product. For patrons of the Mullumbimby Farmers Market however, that is exactly the treat they now have at their fingertips, thanks to Byron Bay Milk Company.

Kiki on Byron cocktail bar and music

I love eating out at restaurants, but no matter how good the food is, for me it’s also about having fun – it’s a whole experience. Some experiences just send your mind that signal to switch off and have fun – whether you’re on holidays, or you just need to chill out. Sitting across from the beach, with a great range of cocktails on hand, listening to some live tunes with a range of tapas and some friends to talk to – to me this is how life should be lived.

Sundays are for Habitat

Looking for an oasis within the oasis that is Byron on a Sunday? A quiet little spot, away from the madness of town, where the food’s delicious, the shopping’s unique and the car parks are plentiful? Then you need to visit Habitat in the Arts & Industry Estate. 

Entertainment in the Byron Shire for the week beginning May 19

‘This Life’ is the first single off Jesse Morris and the Shakedown’s forthcoming and first ever vinyl release titled The Children of the Sun. 

Interview with Peter Castaldi

The Quad in Lismore presents its first outdoor cinema event – programmed by nationally regarded film critic and programmer, Peter Castaldi. Peter told The Echo about the vision.

Interview with magician James Galea

James Galea is no ordinary magician. He’s not the smarmy guy in purple velvet with a cage full of pigeons sawing women in half. In fact, James is proud to say he has never cut anyone in half.

Entertainment in the Byron Shire and Beyond

A huge amount of entertainment all crammed into one space.

Interview with Madeleine West

Madeleine West is a nationally acclaimed actress who is one of the many talents who lives in our region. Not just a soap star (some might know her as Dee Bliss from Neighbours), Madeleine has an extensive performance training background and she’s going to be sharing her Theatresports expertise with kids at the Byron Comedy Fest.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Killer Crocs!

When I was 18, to rebel against the world my parents had created, I shaved a half Mohawk, encouraged my hair to stand on end, grew my armpit hair, wore torn black rags, too much eyeliner and wore 18-hole Dr. Martens boots. These days, to give their parents the shits, the kids are wearing Crocs. With socks. They’re going for comfort.

Jungle juice

There are times when water just doesn’t cut it. And luckily, for those times, there is Jungle Juice.

Rise and shine!

Early morning starts are not a usual routine for chefs at the Ballina RSL Club. March was an exception when Chef Halie Welsh rallied some staff and friends together to take part in Ian Thorpe’s Laps For Life charity. A team of ten hit the Ballina Pool at 7am every day during March to raise funds For ReachOut’s Laps For Life challenge. 

Yamba restaurants

I’m often asked about Yamba, one of our favourite holiday spots over the last 20 years. With a great range of beaches, walks, tennis courts, skate parks and accommodation etc it’s been great for the kids growing up, and they still love it. Plus, it’s now only 90 minutes’ drive from Mullumbimby.

MVP is its own award

It’s easy to get excited about Byron’s new MVP restaurant in Lawson St – it’s not only got standout dishes such as Blue Spirulina Linguine with blue swimmer crab and Yamba prawns, and Fettuccine al Ragù with Hayters Hill beef ragù sauce, feta and baby peas, but it’s also all sustainably sourced from local growers, available in takeaway (even delivered if you’re close to town) and more than half of the menu is plant-based.

Local sailor triumphs in blustery Brisbane to Gladstone yacht race

Local sailor Craig Watson battled near gale-force winds on Coopers to have one of his best ever Brisbane to Gladstone yacht races claiming fourth place in line honours.

Local girls go big at Oz grom cup

Byron Bay’s Leihani Kaloha Zoric won her second Billabong Oz Grom Cup title, taking out the 10-and-under girls division at Park beach in Coffs Harbour last weekend.
