My wife and I attended the Bell Centre for an evening performance from a stand-up comedian. LOCATION: The theatre is situated in the 144th St. & 64th Ave. area of Surrey at Sullivan Heights Secondary School and is most conveniently (and commonly) accessed by vehicle.

Been here for many concerts, dance recitals and plays. This is a high quality facility that deserves your attention when an event is hosted here. Lots of wood with special attention given to acoustics throughout. Very well done

Many people seem to like this place, but I wish someone had warned me about it, so I think I should say this: the seats (in the balcony) were crushed so close to those in front and back it was almost impossible to get in and out, and horribly uncomfortable. The house lights were dim to the point of being... More

If you are able to attend a Vancouver Symphony concert here you will enjoy the professional production. Other events may also be a choice.

How nice to not have to travel to Vancouver for this wonderful VSO Christmas concert. The centre is well run and organized. Parking is a bit tricky if you aren't an early bird as at the end of the show it's a zoo leaving if you aren't in a favourable parking spot. Luckily we were.

Vancouver Symphony plays here regularly - while it doesnt have quite the same character as the Orphuem, the acoustics are fine, and the view from (just about) ecent. Avoid the first few rows though, the stage is too high for much of a view if you are too close to the front.
