Newton Cultural Centre celebrates first anniversary

Surrey arts facility holding party Oct. 1-2

It’s a two-day party and everyone is invited.

The Newton Cultural Centre is approaching its first anniversary and the Arts Council of Surrey is having a celebration.

On Oct. 1 and 2, the centre, which opened last fall, will be alive with music and performances, as well as face painting, an arts and crafts sale and more.

The box office is also going to be officially named to recognize the Surrey Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society. The two-storey centre, on 72 Avenue west of King George Boulevard, was originally a Surrey fire hall.

Festivities will run 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 1 and noon to 4 p.m. Oct. 2.

The Newton Cultural Centre is located at 13530 72 Ave. For further information, call 604-594-2700.
