They will be able to play games, sing songs, write letters to Father Christmas and even meet him!

We have teamed up with Margate’s Garden Gate Charity and will be giving guests the chance to help us paint a bauble and decorate the biggest Christmas tree in Margate! For every bauble on our tree, we will give a free Dreamland ticket to the Garden Gate Charity.
