Surrey Civic Theatres turns 50 with a birthday bash! Join with us to celebrate the legacy and inspiration brought to the community, and the artists who have graced its stages.

Beginning at 6:30pm gather with friends to mingle, enjoy some finger food, hear from guest speakers, and reminisce (check out the memorabilia on display, and add your story to the scrapbook). Then at 8pm the party moves to the Main Stage with the BC World Music Collective—thirteen artists, both indigenous and from away, who now call BC home. Their performances are full of high-energy fun and will have you grooving in your seat. Playing percussion, guitars, bongos, trombone, jarana, pandeiro, fiddle, marimba, congas, bass, trumpet, and mbira, the musicians perform group numbers plus back each other up as they sing their own songs, and tell the stories of where they are from and how they got here.

Buy Tickets

Take the music home—buy a CD or two. The members of the Collective will do a meet 'n greet after the show.

Running time for the concert: approximately 2 hours, including intermission
