This Summer Dreamland will mark the 30th anniversary of The Jolly Boys’ Outing

Jolly Boys Outing 1989

Dreamland will host its biggest ever Only Fools and Horses exhibition for the 30th anniversary of one of its most popular episodes, the Christmas special The Jolly Boys’ Outing.

From August 9-30, Dreamland’s Ballroom will host the special exhibition compiled by the Only Fools Appreciation Society, featuring a collection of original costumes, props, and sets with contributions from series creator, the late John Sullivan. There may even be some special guest appearances over the course of the exhibition.

Filmed on location at Dreamland in August 1989, The Jolly Boys’ Outing saw the whole Only Fools and Horses gang journey from their South London home to the golden Margate Sands. With classic moments including Denzil’s ‘disease’, the exploding coach, and Del Boy being reunited with Raquel, it became one of the best loved episodes from the series.

The exhibition will be open daily from 10am to 5pm, and tickets cost from £7.50.

Dreamland is open every day from July 19 to September 1 for the summer Roller Coast Festival, with activities, character appearances, films screenings and games for all ages every week. The park is free to enter, and guests can pay per ride or buy discounted ride wristbands in advance online. Dreamland members get the most out the park, with unlimited rides and multiple discounts across the site throughout the year.

  1. with contributions and assistance from series creator John Sullivan.

    Er I dont wish to speak out of turn but john Sullivan passed away in 2011 how is he offering contributions and assistance?

    • It seems Mr Sullivan worked with the society and his contributions/collection items are among those included. I have got rid of ‘assistance’

    • It’s very simple. John Sullivan assisted and contributed to the Only Fools society to bring this collection together before he passed.
