100 Years in Dreamland

SKU: BOO-218GNE-018 Categories:


Twenty years after writing his first book about Dreamland, local author Nick Evans is retelling the story of the famous Margate fun park in a new version, Years In Dreamland.

The new book

The new book includes more than 100 photographs, compiled from his and other collections which appeared in the earlier versions of the books published between 2003 and 2014. Those books have since gone out of print to become collectors’ items. 100 Years In Dreamland brings us right up to recent times with pictures showing the cinema building dressed for the filming of Empire Of Light, directed by Sam Mendes and released in January 2023.

The park, cinema and ballroom have been part of the Margate landscape for more than 100 years. For many, a visit to the Kent coast simply wasn't complete without a ride on the famed Scenic Railway, the Looping Star, the Big Wheel or the dodgem cars.

Dreamland's trendsetting 1930's cinema led the way in design while the ballroom became famous for dancing and big name music concerts. Its restaurants fed tens of thousands enjoying their bean feast outings. Later on, Dreamland would hold its own as an exciting theme park.

Margate's renewed popularity in recent years has helped Dreamland to turn a corner amid hopes that more restoration work can continue. More than 100 photographs, mainly from a single collection have been used to give us this nostalgic look back at 100 Years in Dreamland.


This is a 96 page landscape book. Available to buy from Westgate Galleria and The Eclectic Art Gallery in Margate Old Town.  Nick Evans' books always sell quickly so do not miss this opportunity to make sure you get your copy.
