n the UK, a new government report has praised DreamlandMargate for its role in the successful regeneration of the seaside town – but the next steps are to turn coastal communities into year-round destinations, says the attraction.

Dreamland was one of several locations visited by the House of Lords Select Committee on Regenerating Seaside Towns for their report on The Future of Seaside Towns, released on Thursday 4th April.

Margate was held up as a positive example of

coastal regeneration, with Dreamland singled out as one of the most notable examples of success.

CEO Eddie Kemsley welcomed the findings of the report: “Margate remains a benchmark for other seaside towns in terms of what collaborative, arts and leisure-led regeneration can achieve, and we are extremely proud to be part of the story.We welcome this report and the

acknowledgement of DreamlandMargate’s impact on the district’s growth and success.

This is the goal for Dreamland, as we work towards a full 12month offer with numerous events planned throughout the year plus our award-winning Halloween event, Screamland, and a brand new Christmas event planned for 2019.

“We’ve also just hired 200 seasonal staff to support our summer season and with our increased events offer , we hope to keep providing more job opportunities
