What’s Happening in Surrey in September

Despite the wonderful warm weather that has been easing our transition in to fall, we know that cooler days are just around the corner! Soon it will be time to grab a sweater, order a pumpkin spiced treat and put on our socks (oh the horror) as the temperatures start to dip. The cooler weather doesn’t mean that we slow down though, in fact, the fall is one of the best times of the year to visit Surrey and while things might look a little different this year, there are lots of fun activities happening this September.

Surrey’s Digital Stage
Online | September 3 & 18

Enjoy live online performances brought to you by Surrey Civic Theatres.  Upcoming shows include:

Ingenue – September 3 at 7:00pm
This award-winning musical written and starring Melanie Gall, is about the life of Deanna Durbin, “Winnipeg’s Sweetheart” and her friendship with Judy Garland. Ms Garland might be the icon and household name everyone knows today, but in the 1930s, “Winnipeg’s Sweetheart” was a far greater star.  How to watch.

The Naad Malhaar (Water Music) Concert by the Indian Standard Time Trio – September 18 at 7:00pm
Join accomplished musicians, Amarjeet Singh, Bruce Harding, and Baljit Singh on September 18 for a show that is a perfect marriage of setting and song: The Naad Malhaar Concert (English translation: Water Music). Filmed in Surrey’s picturesque Darts Hills Garden Park, this accomplished trio from Indian Standard Time will delight audiences with the enchanting and soothing sounds of the tabla, flute, and dilruba.  How to watch.
