3 things to do this week in Surrey and White Rock

1 Talk about a local trifecta of talent: Renowned B.C.-based musicians Barney Bentall, Jim Byrnes and John Mann hit the main stage at Surrey Arts Centre in a triple-headline evening of music and stories. Between them, there are multiple Juno Awards and more than 25 albums worth of contributions to the world of music. This one-timeonly musical experience takes places tonight (Thursday, Oct. 30) at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $25 to $45 via 604-501-5566 and the arts centre’s box office, at 13750 88th Ave, Surrey.

2 The White Rock chapter of the Soroptimist International, a world-wide organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, is holding a film night that will be screening The Whistleblower tonight (Thursday, Oct. 30). The film documents what happened to a UN peacekeeper who intervened in a “deadly” sex trafficking ring to save lives. The annual film night, held at White Rock Community Centre at 6:30 p.m., aims to raise awareness about sex trafficking globally and locally. Tickets to the event are $10. Contact Liz Aubert for tickets at 604-538-3505 or at lizfizz@shaw.ca.

3 Halloween’s here, and if trickor-treating just isn’t your thing then perhaps shooting zombies is. It’s open season at the Zombie Combat Zone tonight and tomorrow night (Friday, Oct. 31) from dusk until 1 a.m. For 45 minutes, you can chase the undead through the woods while you aim to rescue a group of scientists with a cure for the walking dead’s plague in a scripted and interactive game. The Zombie Combat Zone package is $499, up to a group of 10, and is located at White Rock’s Semiahmoo Park (15782 Marine Drive). Pre-book your hunt at Zombiecombatzone. com/bookings.
