DREAMLAND MARGATE - THE UK'S ORIGINAL PLEASURE PARK RE-IMAGINED 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside...' Kiss me quick! Soon Margate will once again echo with the sounds (and screams) of delight and wonder, as visitors old and young enjoy the Great British seaside amusement experience first-hand. Following a passionate 11-year 'Save Dreamland' campaign, Dreamland Margate will be reborn. The UK's original Pleasure Park is being re-imagined, ready to welcome a new generation of fun-seeking visitors to an 'old fashioned, yet oh-so-fashionable' world of thrills, amusements and good times. 'There's nowhere quite like Dreamland' Where else in the UK can you clamber aboard a host of stylishly restored, recreated and retro-fitted rides and amusements from the Golden Age of British seaside hols? 'Roll up, roll up!' There'll be more than just brilliant retro rides and amusements. Dreamland will be a world where vintage cool holds hands with modern design, and goes for a lovely beachside stroll. To keep those smiles wide, we've got your British comfort food favourites, all lovingly made from local Kent produce, We've also lined up a host of unmissable events, celebrating the best of British Culture, each with that unmistakable Dreamland vibe. 'Scream-if-you-want-to-go-faster' Bringing their buckets, spades and quirky sense of British style to Dreamland is HemingwayDesign, led by Hemingways Wayne, Gerardine and Jack. They've worked closely with local artists and Margate enthusiasts to get the sights, sounds, even the smells of the seaside fun park just right, with all the timeless cheeky charm intact. Everywhere you look, there will be a wonderful sense of seaside magic brings rides, classic sideshows and traditional fairground games lovingly back to life Not to mention film screenings, concerts and amazing installations too. All part of the great big happy day out that will be Dreamland Margate.
