Work to renovate Dreamland is well underway.

Construction work is taking place on site, the neon sign on the fin is being brought back to its former glory and even the Big Wheel is getting a lick of paint.

The park reopens on April 28 and will have new and refurbished rides, features and festivals – including the Demon Dayz event headed by Gorillaz.

Visitors can expect interactive art installations,  street food and a programme of live events.

The new ride line-up also includes the Brooklands Speedway, Wedgwood Tea Cups and The Crazy Mouse.

A new garden boardwalk will give visitors the opportunity to admire the antique menageries from the 1800s.

The food  will come from vendors inspired by London’s booming street food culture, offering cuisine ranging from wood fired pizza to Mexican tacos.

On the seafront, the original 1930s Cinque Ports pub is being brought back to life and this summer will also see the addition of the region’s only rooftop bar, offering unparalleled vistas over Margate’s skyline.

The overhaul is a key stage in the plans of the park’s operator, Sands Heritage Limited, to bring more visitors to the park. The changes are being carried out following a £15million loan to operator Sands Heritage Limited, which fell into administration last May,  from offshore firm Arrowgrass.
