Dreamland Trust appeal for volunteers

First Dreamland staff outing 1920s

The Dreamland Trust is looking for volunteers to help with a new exhibition space opening soon in Margate.

Images and memorabilia from the Trust’s archives will be on display as well as historic films of Dreamland and the charity’s animated film ‘My Dreamland,’ which includes photographs and memories of Dreamland from members of the public.

The Dreamland Trust is an independent charity which was formed following the successful six-year ‘Save Dreamland’ campaign. The Trust originated the idea of re-opening Dreamland as the world’s first amusement park of historic rides.

A number of these rides still remain on the park working alongside the new thrill rides brought in by the park’s operators. The Trust is committed to conserving and protecting the heritage of Dreamland through a programme of community, education projects and exhibitions.

Bernie Morgan, Chair of the Dreamland Trust, said: “Over 7,000 people visited our exhibitions last year. This year’s exhibition will also include vintage films and the opportunity to view some of our digitised archive collection.

“We are calling for volunteers to help us welcome visitors to the exhibition and would love to hear from people from the local community who would like to get involved and celebrate all that is great about Dreamland.”

There are also opportunities for other volunteer roles relating to the Dreamland archive, its organisation and display, as well as developing free talks and tours for the general public and schools.

The new display location is due to be announced next week.
