April 16, 2013
Surrey, BC – Tickets for the 9th annual Surrey Children’s Festival go on sale April 16th at 12noon at the Surrey Arts Centre box office.
Six ticketed headline performances occur on May 23 – 25 for $10 each and an all access pass is available on Saturday for $12 each which admits you to all the performances (subject to availability) and activities on site. Entrance to the festival is free, as are many community performances and art activities.
“We’re thrilled to be able to bring these world-class children’s performers together in one place”, says City of Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts. “We recognize that parents are looking for inspiring and enriching cost effective activities for their kids and the Surrey Children’s Festival provides just that.”
The goal of the Surrey Children’s Festival is to expose children to the arts in a fun and interactive way. This year’s line-up of performers ranges from a preschool performance from Australia, Grug and Alberta circus performers The Chairmen. Medicine Bear is dance theatre from Toronto at its finest, while Grand Dérangement gets kids moving with Acadian music from Nova Scotia. The Spirit of Harriet Tubman from Ontario and a film from the U.K The Itch of the Golden Nit round out Festival ticketed performances.
“This international festival grows in popularity each year and is a great way to inspire young hearts and minds and celebrate the City’s rich and diverse culture through performing and visual arts experiences.” says Councillor Judy Villeneuve, Chair of the City’s Culture Development Advisory Committee.
Tickets and all access passes go on sale April 16th at the Surrey Art’s Centre box office and may also be purchased on site during the festival. However, there are a limited number of all access passes available.
