An ‘Open Doors for Peace’ concert is set for 3 to 8 p.m. Saturday in Newton.
Hosted by the Friends of the Grove, the event – funded by the Neighbourhood Small Grant program of the Oak Avenue Hub Society – is to feature Music Therapists for Peace musicians Sue Baines, Steve Cotrill, Lucy Cross, Alexina Davis, Rebecca Barr and Tyrone Barnes, as well as local musicians Borge Peterson and friends, and the Sacred Web Singers.
Organizers say food will be provided on the hour starting at 4 p.m., and those planning to attend are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket to sit on, as well as any art, decorations or activities “to share their vision of what a more peaceful community and world might look like.”
The concert will be held in The Grove, located beside the Newton Recreation Centre (13730 72 Ave.), and will follow the Newton Community Festival and Surrey Doors Open event, taking place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Doors Open, in its fourth year, encourages residents to explore their hometown by sampling culture, history, art and architecture, recreational facilities and places of worship. Thirty-nine sites around Surrey (surrey.ca/doorsopen) are opening their doors to the public for the day.
