Dreamland Summer Social

After a roller-coaster year for everyone, we are delighted to say that beginning 27th May Dreamland Margate reopens its outdoor Scenic Stage and indoor event venues for a bumper six-month programme of events.

The Dreamland events calendar for 2021 is truly packed, and you can see our list of what’s going on by clicking here 

This summer Margate’s legendary Dreamland amusement park will be transformed into the Dreamland Summer Social. A place for us to come together outdoors in the sun and enjoy a wide range of great drinks, amazing street food, live DJs and sports screenings on our large Scenic Stage Screen.

Dreamland Summer Social will run all summer long and be compliant with the latest government guidelines so you can enjoy the best of the season while feeling totally safe.

We’re planning exciting content all summer long, from football, tennis and the Olympics, to live music and screenings.

Enjoy our huge outdoor seating area where a wide range of drinks and food will be delivered to your table by ordering on your smartphone.

We're open for regular table bookings from 4pm Monday-Friday and from midday on weekends. Last orders will be at 10:30pm.

Front main area – The first 7 rows of tables in our main area closest to the screen and stage. If you’re coming for the football, these will be the best seats in the house.

Back main area – The back 5 rows at the back of our main area, with a great view of the screen, but a little quieter.

Terrace benches – These benches are on our grassy terrace area with a great view of the screen. Note: this area does not have tables.

Upper terrace – these tables are on the raised area between Dreamland’s iconic giant letters, with a wonderful view of the screen and the whole park.

VIP platform – Hidden away from the action, this area is perfect for those who want a bit more privacy while screenings and events are taking place. Note: not all tables in this area have view of our screen.

Dogs are welcome... We ask all dog owners to ensure that they remain with their dogs at all times, bring their own dog bowls with water and be responsible with waste.

What’s more is we can now reveal that a collection of eight specially selected amusement park rides has been commissioned for visitors to the Dreamland Summer Social to enjoy from Saturday 10th July and throughout the summer holidays.

Joining established classics such as the Waltzer, Scrambler Twist and Gallopers will be a thrilling new attraction — The Ghost Train. Originally built in the 1960s this famous ride has been lovingly restored. The Toytown Carousel and Austin Cars will be ready for younger riders while all the family can enjoy The Rocking Tug and our brand-new Giant Dodgem Track with a whopping 20 superfast cars.

Other rides, including the 101-year-old Scenic Railway, will return to operation in 2022.

Rides for this summer will be available to enjoy on a pay-per-ride basis with prices starting from as little as £2.
