Dreamland is set to become the number one destination for Christmas in Kent as it transforms into The Frosted Fairground. Newly re-landscaped and with a whole host of new features in 2017, this is the first edition of The Frosted Fairground since the park’s redevelopment. The amusement park will open on the first two weekends in December, then every day from 16th December until January 3rd 2018 (closed on Christmas Day).
Open every day from 1st December to 3rd January (except Christmas Day), this 450 metre square rink will have room for 150 people to skate at one time. The winter weather won’t affect the fun as the rink is undercover, with a clear roof and walls for taking in the sights at the winter-themed amusement park.
The Snowman and The Snowdog
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and December 21st sees a special appearance from favourite characters, The Snowman and The Snowdog, at the amusement park. Arrive early to avoid disappointment and don’t forget to bring your camera!
Father Christmas’ Grotto Experience
A magical experience awaits families and believers visiting the grotto at Dreamland. With elves, crafts and a sing-along with Father Christmas himself all topped off with a gift for each child.
Jack and Jackie Frost
Compering the stage throughout the Christmas period will be Jack and Jackie Frost. Making sure you don’t miss so much as a snowflake, they will be hosting sing-a-longs, reporting on the likelihood of a white Christmas, playing Christmas number ones at 1pm and even having a light switch on every day.
Rebecca Ellis, Director of Events and Programming at Dreamland Margate, said:
“It’s been a very exciting year at Dreamland and ending it by providing an amazing festive experience at the park is really important to us. We can’t wait to have an ice rink in Margate and to once again draw people to the town outside of the summer season. Locals don’t need to travel to London or elsewhere to get that magical Christmas feeling, they will find it at Dreamland!”
There’s a plentiful line-up of attractions and events set for the park, with seasonal food and drink and lots more music and entertainment still to be announced, The Frosted Fairground is the perfect place to get that festive feeling!
