Learning & Engagement

With heritage at its heart, Dreamland Margate offers a wealth of learning and story-telling opportunities. It has an abundance of themes to exploit, ranging from the British railway boom to the origins of amusement parks, circus, cinema, modernist architecture, popular culture, youth cults and many more.

The Dreamland Trust celebrates the importance of Dreamland’s unique past and its significant place in the history of British seaside towns and popular cultural heritage – it is a treasure chest just waiting to be opened and explored!

With Dreamland’s rich history and wide-ranging themes, learning becomes an exciting journey of discovery and interaction that represents the best of family-friendly fun, yet also supports formal learning.

From primary schools to adult learners, community projects, research and symposia, The Dreamland Trust aims to help everyone develop an understanding of our cultural heritage.

Our learning and engagement programme includes school activities, academic research, archiving, publications, training, talks, tours, exhibition, projects, workshops, film screenings and creative interpretation. The Dreamland Trust is responsible for managing and delivering the Academic Research Access programme, presentations, projects, talks, tours, exhibitions, publication, media and archive access. Please contact learning@dreamlandtrust.org.uk for more information.

Our learning and community programme is extensive and includes school activities, academic research, exhibitions, archiving, film screenings and creative interpretation.
