Three Things to do this Week (Surrey, White Rock, North Delta)

Three Things to do this Week (Surrey, White Rock, North Delta):

1. IRELAND CALLING: White Rock is busy with Celtic activities this weekend as part of the city’s month-long Irish Festival. Get yourself a little cultural education with Irish drum workshops at the White Rock Community Centre (5154 Russell Ave.), starting at 2 and 3:15 p.m. Sunday. Register at Webreg.whiterockcity.ca for $10. Want more? In Surrey, check out the Celtic Fest from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday at Surrey Museum (17710 56A Ave.) for music, dancing, history and crafts. Admission by donation. Don’t miss out on “Into The Mystic,” an exhibit that complements Irish songwriter Van Morrison’s song by the same name, presented by Semiahmoo Arts. Admission is free at The Turnbull Gallery (14601 20th Ave.) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. until March 31.

2. CAT SHOW: Why are there so many more pictures of cats on the Internet than dogs? Because dog people actually leave the house, some say. If you’re a cat person, prove them wrong at the Lucky Black Cat Affair, the Cat Fancier of BC’s semi-annual championship and household pet cat show. The affair runs Saturday and Sunday at Pacific Inn Resort and Conference Centre (1160 King George Blvd). Admission is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and free for kids under 12. Open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

3. 6 GUITARS: Music, comedy and drama fuse together in this one-man show at Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Ave). Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he becomes six guitar players – each with their own distinct voice, views and musical style. This emotive night of music and laughter runs Thursday through Saturday (March 12 to 14) at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $25 to $35 and can be purchased at Tickets.surrey.ca or at the box office.
