Celebrate Family Day in B.C. with renowned children’s performer Charlotte Diamond and the Hug Bug Band.

Inspiring children to sing, dance, care for each other, and celebrate Canada’s cultures for more than 25 years, Diamond creates musical fun with new songs along with her catchy kids’ classics including Four Hugs a Day, I am a Pizza (Je suis une pizza), Octopus (Slippery Fish), La Bamba, All the Nations Like Banana and Dicky Dinosaur.

Her audiences are not just entertained but they are inspired by her French, Spanish, and English performance of memorable songs for the whole family.

Diamond has had a life-long interest in music. She sang with local folk groups, including performing intro sets for Pete Seeger and Tom Paxton.  When her own children came along, she began singing and writing songs for them and also developed a preschool music program in her community. This led to performances for her children’s parent-participation preschool, which mushroomed into requests for workshops, school concerts and family shows throughout British Columbia.

Prior to the performance, the public is also invited to participate in a free lantern making workshop and Hug Bug arts station from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the lobby of the ACT.

• Charlotte Diamond plays the ACT Monday Feb. 10 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15 or get a pack of four for $50 at theactmapleridge.org.
