Dreamland in Margate hosts its first proms

Flags and fresh strawberries at the ready – Dreamland is hosting its first proms in the park.

In a first for the Margate amusement park, its very own proms will star the BBC Big Band and Claire Martin on Saturday, June 15, bringing a night of nostalgia of the jazz age and big band era mixed with modern classics and pop culture.

There will be big band, jazz and swing music on the Scenic Stage and ticket holders can bring their own picnic or opt for Golden Circle seated tickets or VIP packages.
