A detailed calendar of dates and performers is posted at centralcity.ca.
Noontime Notes concerts are performed at a temporary “PARKit” area on the plaza. “A joint partnership of the City of Surrey and Central City, PARKit is a modern gathering place for the community to meet, relax, play giant board games, and enjoy occasional programmed entertainment and events,” explains a post on Central City’s website.
Also returning to Surrey this summer is the city-planned Music on the Plaza series of concerts at Surrey City Hall Plaza, on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Admission is free for performances by Taylor Rae & The Backseat Drivers (July 10), Beauty Shop Dolls (July 17 and Aug. 14), Taylor Rae (July 24), Pat Chessell (July 31), Travis Ree (Aug. 7), and Bruce Coughlan (Aug. 20).
