Tickets for Surrey International Children’s Festival now on sale

SURREY — Tickets went on sale today (Tuesday, April 14) for the 11th annual Surrey International Children’s Festival, via the Surrey Arts Centre box office

This year’s festival will be held from May 21 to 23 at the arts centre and Bear Creek Park, with seven ticketed headline performances over three days. Tickets are $10 each.

Also, a Saturday “All Access Pass” is also available for $12, which allows full access to all performances (subject to show availability) and all arts activities on site. Entrance to the festival is free, as are many community performances and art activities.

The festival aims to expose children to the arts in a fun and interactive way. This year’s line-up ranges from preschool performances for children as young as six months to intermediate shows for older children, aged nine and up.

International and national performances include Music with Marnie and The Secret Life of Walter Manny from B.C., and Manitoba circus performers The Street Circus. Festival-goers will also have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a traditional puppet theatre performance from Vietnam’s Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theatre. This unique type of storytelling performance features ancient music, dance and song – all on water.

All details are online at Surrey.ca/childrensfestival, or call 604-501-5566.
