To mark the upcoming opening of the reimagined Dreamland Margate amusement park, as well as celebrate the council’s phase two restoration work to the iconic Sunshine café, a special competition will run from Tuesday 18 April – Monday 1 May for the public to share their memories of Dreamland.

Using our social media platforms, Facebook (@ThanetDistrictCouncil) and Twitter (@ThanetCouncil), we’re encouraging anyone with photos of their days out at Dreamland to share them with us. We’ll be adding them to our social media channels in a dedicated album, helping to relive some of the history of our iconic seaside resort.

All photos entered into the competition will be judged by local blogger and photographer, Meg of Margate, who will choose a favourite. The winner will receive a wristband for a family of four to Dreamland Margate when the park reopens on 26 May 2017 - to be used before 3rd September 2017. (Full terms and conditions apply – see below).

Photos can be emailed to communications@thanet.gov.uk and will also be entered into the competition.
