SUMMER POP
Sensational Summer Shows for You to Enjoy!

Now that the warmer weather is here it is time to start making plans to create those fabulous summer memories. Here at Surrey Civic Theatres, the staff have been working hard to bring you a smorgasbord of world-class acts for the POP! Summer Strolls. We don’t want to toot our own horn, but the line-ups for both experiences are incredible.

If you haven’t enjoyed a Civic Theatres POP! Summer Stroll before, then you are in for a treat. Stroll through the picturesque settings, and in different locations you will be treated to a variety of performances. There will be three micro-performances on each stroll that last approximately 15 minutes before you make your way to a grand finale performance. A POP! Summer Stroll is the perfect way to while away a summer’s eve—or afternoon!

This year, the strolls take place in two locations: The Glades Woodland Garden from July 7–17 and Darts Hill Garden Park from August 18–28. For both Strolls, you can tour the gardens 30 minutes before the performance starts…gardens AND a show, could it get any better?

Summer POP! tickets range in price from $5–$35, to ensure the strolls are accessible to everyone in the community. That means we are giving you the option to choose the ticket price that works for your budget. A POP! Summer Stroll really is the best bang for your buck the Lower Mainland has to offer this summer! Be sure to check out the full line up for the Strolls below!

Finally, keep a look out for an announcement coming soon with all the details of Surrey Civic Theatres Presentation Series…we can’t wait to share our news! You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for up-to-the-minute news and announcements, as well as find information on other great performing arts events and news we think you will enjoy. See you at the theatre!
