A snowball fight zone, Santa and Mrs Claus, a chance to custard pie an elf and stalls from local businesses in the Thanet Virtual High Street group are just some of the festive offerings at Dreamland’s Christmas World, which opens tomorrow [December 15].

There will also be snow in the outdoor area which features Christmas light reindeers, plus Elf Extravaganza shows from Regency Productions and a selection of festive film screenings.

There will also be a Santa’s workshop, where visitors can decorate a Christmas ornament and the chance to join the elves at the Reindeer Food Station to concoct a special blend of oats and sugary stardust designed to be scattered on Christmas eve, to guide Santa’s reindeer to your home.

Eddie Kemsley, CEO Dreamland Margate, says this year the focus is “on the kids.”

She added: “It is really about a magical Christmas and having a good time with everything from snowball fights to pieing an elf and, obviously, Father Christmas, a few rides and some nice food including from Big Shot from the seafront.

“Regency are doing three shows a day with Jingle and Jangle [elves] and there will be films as well.”
