Pele: Art, Life, Football After Hours at National Football Museum, Cathedral Quarter, 18 May 2017, free entry

“Pele was one of the few who contradicted my theory: instead of 15 minutes of fame, he will have 15 centuries” – Andy Warhol.

Caipirinha cocktails and live Samba music feature in this launch of the National Football Museum’s next major exhibition: Pelé: Art, Life, Football. Tracing the stages of the Brazilian icon’s life and career in the spotlight – from Santos to New York via four World Cups – the exhibition includes international art, photographs and iconic items from the National Football Museum’s own collection, as well as those owned by private collectors.
