  • Surrey Civic Theatres expand
  • Gather with friends as you watch actors, dancers, and musicians perform for you on the Main Stage and Studio Theatre, two of the Surrey Civic Theatres’ venues. Patrons have told us “all seats are great” in our 402-seat Main Stage. With a large stage, a fly tower, and generous backstage spaces, it can handle our biggest shows. The Studio Theatre (129 seats) is our most intimate space—people love the ambience. Ideal for smaller-scale performances of every kind, up close and personal is what this space is all about. Surrey Civic Theatres presents the Surrey Spectacular Season and Arts Club Series. Our stages are also prized by those who present their own performances. So unplug. Step away from the screens and the streaming, and go live!

    When you want to explore your creative side, we’ve got performing arts classes for all ages.

  • Public Art expand
  • The Surrey Arts Centre is home to some fabulous public and interactive artworks! Visitors love spinning the large copper disk by Maurice van der Beke called Mandala After a Prayer Wheel, or reading what words will emerge in frost on Alan Storey’s copper panels titled Out of Thin Air. In the parking lot, a series of kinetic banners by Blake Williams adorn the light posts and move with the wind, hence their name, On the Wind.
