The Characters

All program characters are based on real people from Surrey’s past and the events that shaped their lives in Surrey. Character development comes from extensive research at museums and archives, supported through engagement with community knowledge keepers and historians. While some stories are light-hearted and fun, many character stories also play an important role in engaging and educating the general community on some of the more difficult aspects of Surrey and Canada’s history.

The Re-enactors were the winners of the 2015 British Columbia Parks and Recreation Association’s Program Excellence Award.
