MARCH 2014 NEWSLETTER

The Dreamland Trust met with the Fred Perry design team in Margate last year who were looking for inspiration for a 2014 Spring/Summer capsule collection.

Fred Perry

 

The collection coincides with this year’s 50th anniversary of the infamous 1964 Whitsun weekend youth clash on Margate sands. For over 50 years mods, skinheads and scooter boys made the weekend pilgrimage to Margate marking their cultural territory and expressing their identity through music and fashion.

In the early 1980s scooter lover and illustrator Paddy Smith began producing and selling commemorative ‘weekender’ patches. The hand printed designs, exclusively available at each event, began to be worn as medals – proof of attendance. Each patch was unique to that weekender and the design told a story about the date and destination.

This season, six exclusive patches have been designed by Paddy Smith and are applied to a series of Fred Perry styles, illustrating the enduring relationship between the Laurel Wreath and British subcultures. Each patch celebrates a unique element of the weekenders and one patch pays tribute to the rejuvenation of Margate’s iconic Dreamland.

The full collection will be available in all Fred Perry Authentic shops and now online at www.fredperry.com

 

DREAMLAND VISITOR AND LEARNING CENTRE

 

Dreams can come true

We are full steam ahead at Dreamland HQ planning and designing Dreamland’s vintage arcade style visitor & learning centre in the Grade II*-listed cinema building’s disused seafront amusement arcade.

Our local community were the instigators for raising funds to open a visitor & learning centre. Businesses, national artists and the people of Margate came together and raised over £25k from a celebrity art auction, open day and vintage vehicle rally.

Due to the neglected condition of the building and associate services, handed over to the council last September, new temporary power and water supply system needs to be put into place to commence works. The project design has allowed for the provision of new services to the entire site with the Stage 1 works – provision of these is taking slightly longer than anticipated, but we understand we’ll have full access and utilities soon and will be ready to open this spring.

Meanwhile, we are selecting content and activities for the arcade to create an immersive exhibition describing Dreamland’s rich heritage, the project and future plans whilst evoking the atmosphere of Dreamland and vintage amusement arcade culture.

We’ll announce the opening date shortly.

 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

 

We are delighted to announce that we have two opportunities coming at the end of this month and beyond.

Firstly we are looking for people with carpentry, painting and decorating skills to help us prepare the Visitor & Learning Centre Arcade due to open this spring and secondly…

We are looking to recruit a flock of Dreamland Guardians to help run the Visitor & Learning Centre Arcade from spring 2014 – spring 2015 acting as:

  • Front of House
  • Ambassadors
  • Invigilators
  • Tour guides
  • Archive collators

Training, handbook, per diems and free tickets to our 2014 events and activities are all part of the Dreamland volly package – plus lots of fun!

If you’d like to join the Dreamland community in please email volunteers@dreamlandmargate.co.uk.

 

PROJECT UP-DATE

 

Third month into 2014 and the project is progressing well.

All landscape and ecological surveys have now been completed. Tenders for the initial works are being evaluated by our partners, Thanet District Council, and we anticipate an appointment at the end of March. Meanwhile, the council has put out a call for interest to tender for the design and build of the amusement park exterior and interior spaces.

A contractor for the design and build of the Scenic Railway trains is being finalised and the council is in the process of drawing up the contract. Meanwhile the specification for the second package of works is being drawn up for the design and build of the Scenic Railway, associated buildings and railway station.

Corbiere Wheel

A call out for expressions of interest to restore the Corbiere Wheel and Junior Whip has been released by the council.

The Corbiere Wheel is the creation of French engineer, Henri Corbiere, built around 1956.

This veteran Ferris Wheel is the only ride in the world to have a spherical motion. In other words the whole wheel revolves around its base as its gondolas travel in a spiral path describing a sphere through space.

Now in its golden age this state of the art design had its passengers spellbound by the unique sensation of its double action.

Junior WhipDreamland’s Junior Whip is the last surviving original in the UK. The Junior Whip opened at Pleasure Beach Blackpool in 1927 as the Fairy Whip. It was believed to have been originally located in Bingle & Bob’s, the children’s park set up that same year between the Jack ‘n Jill Slide and the Scenic Railway.

In 1934, the ride was moved to Emberton’s Kiddies Park where it was located immediately south of the Zipper Dipper. It operated until 2008, in recent years as Griffin’s Magic Dragon, and in 2009 it was dismantled and moved to Dreamland Margate.

 

ACADEMIC STUDY

 

This time of year always brings forward an avalanche of academic and creative inquiry from students and tutors who have been inspired by Dreamland and its many themes from the science of amusement park planning to fine art, architecture, social history, heritage, regeneration and the performing arts.

So, it’s no wonder that this year, likely to be the last year we see Dreamland in its current defunct condition, demand for access to the amusement park, its environs, designs, archive and the project team is greater than ever.

With approximately 70 students engaged from Canterbury School of Architecture, University for the Creative Arts foundation course and University for the Creative Arts fine art department, Canterbury Christ Church University performing arts department and Canterbury Christ Church photograph department, we look forward to seeing the outcomes and exhibiting some of the resulting work in the Visitor & Learning Centre Arcade later this year.

 

THANK YOU!

 

A huge thank you goes to Lisa Hemingway and her team at the Cupcake Café in Margate’s old town for organising a Dreamland pancake fundraiser.

Making, tasting, flippin’ ‘n’ tossing culminated in an impromptu pancake race across the old town – not sure who won, but plenty of fun (and pancakes!) had by all.

Thank you also to Richard and Carole at Margate’s micropub, The Harbour Arms (cunningly hidden on Margate’s Harbour Arm!), for their continued support and fundraising pub quiz nights – guaranteed to lubricate the old thinking organ as well as the throat!

Happy New Year from the Dreamland Trust!

FRESH START FOR DREAMLAND

fontaine cheque8This week, The Dreamland Trust received a £25,000 cheque for monies raised through a celebrity art auction, organised by Stuart Atkinson and Kiel Shaw of Fontaine Decorative. Monies raised are to be used to open a Dreamland Visitor & Learning Centre in Dreamland’s Grade II*-listed seafront amusement arcade this spring.
Fontaine Decorative is a patron of the arts supporting Turner Contemporary and now Dreamland. Stuart said; “We were very proud to be involved with the art auction evening. The money raised exceeded all expectations. It just proves the level of support that the Dreamland Trust has locally and nationally. We can’t wait to see the visitors’ centre opened, being the catalyst for the much needed regeneration of the other end of Margate’s beautiful seafront”

The art auction was part of a series of events held at the end of last year to celebrate the successful end of a drawn out legal challenge, which finally saw Thanet District Council taking ownership of the site. Other activities included over 2,300 people attending an open afternoon at Dreamland, vintage and classic vehicle rally, volunteer Big Clear day and a fundraising quiz night hosted by the Harbour Arms micro pub.
The Dreamland Trust is now implementing plans to open Dreamland in 2015 under the full-time directorship of Eddie Kemsley. Eddie joins the Dreamland Margate project team this month bringing a wealth of experience and expertise in the leisure and hospitality industries, including seven years as a director of Kent’s Port Lympne and Howlett’s Wild Animal Parks and the transformation of London’s Grade II-listed Camden Palace into the award-winning KOKO.

Eddie said: “I am delighted to accept this cheque on behalf of The Dreamland Trust and thank Stuart and Kiel, and all the sponsors, contributors and volunteers for supporting Dreamland. I am thrilled to be joining the Dreamland project team and very much look forward to bringing this exciting and vital project to fruition.”

The Visitor & Learning Centre will be managed by The Dreamland Trust’s Heritage & Engagement Manager, Jan Leandro, supported by a team of volunteer greeters and guides. The space invites people to find out more about the future plans for Dreamland, the amusement park’s extraordinary past and the restoration of the Grade II*-listed Scenic Railway – the UK’s oldest wooden roller coaster

The space invites people to find out more about the future plans for Dreamland, the amusement park’s extraordinary past and the restoration of the Grade II*-listed Scenic Railway – the UK’s oldest wooden roller coaster.

The centre’s programme will include talks, tours, exhibitions and learning opportunities along with pop-up events and visiting attractions including drive-in movies, vintage vehicle rallies and live performance. The space will be designed and set dressed to evoke the atmosphere of Dreamland and things to come in 2015.

GEEK2014 – Minecraft Amusement Park Challenge
Dreamland Margate’s, iconic amusement park will be the inspiration for a Minecraft challenge at this year’s Gaming Expo East Kent – GEEK2014 largest gaming expo in the South East.

Dreamland Margate’s, iconic amusement park will be the inspiration for a Minecraft challenge at this year’s Gaming Expo East Kent – GEEK2014 largest gaming expo in the South East.

The world-building game, Minecraft, is a true phenomenon with gamers’ young and old using it in countless creative ways. Every day, more and more teachers are using the game to engage and educate.

The game involves players placing and breaking various types of building blocks  in a three-dimensional environment. The player takes on an avatar that can break and place blocks, forming fantastic structures, creations, and artwork, on multiplayer servers and single player worlds across multiple game modes.
GEEK’s event organiser and studio assistant, Kimberley Steward, said: “The small Minecraft area at GEEK2013 proved very successful. For 2014 we took this success and asked Multiplay, who run Minecon (the official Minecraft event and Insomnia – Britain’s largest gaming event), to organise and run a much larger Minecraft area at GEEK2014 using 40 Minecraft machines to run the game and tournaments”.

GEEK will be running a creative build challenge before the event. The theme for the Minecraft challenge is to build an amusement park or amusement park attraction, inspired by Dreamland – the oldest surviving amusement park in the UK currently be rejuvenated for 2015.

Players can log in to the server geek.multiplay.com (http://geek.multiplay.com/) until Wednesday, 29th January to build in a specific plot. Already tried and tested is Kimberley’s roller coaster based on Dreamland’s Grade II*-listed Scenic Railway Minecraft Scenic Railway – Dreamland Margate.

Mine Craft Scenic

The builds will be judged by Multi-disciplinary designer for Dreamland, Wayne Hemingway OBE and Jacob Aron, Journalist for the New Scientist and Minecraft player. Prizes are yet to be announced but entries will be judged on design and style.

The prizes have been provided by Razer. Razer is the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, so it is on most PC gamers’ wishlist 1st prize is a kit that will get you PC Gaming to a pro, which includes a headset, keyboard, mouse and mousemat, a really cool prize for people who use PC to play.

The Dreamland Trust’s Heritage & Engagement Manager, Jan Leandro, explained: “this is a wonderful cross-over where heritage is inspiring gamers to explore, discover and create imaginary worlds using new technology – we’re really excited about this challenge and look forward to seeing the outcomes”.

For more information or to be a GEEK201 volunteer please visit www.geek2014.co.uk or contact Kimberley Steward at kim@marinestudios.co.uk.

PROJECT UP-DATE FROM THE NEW LANDOWNERS

CIMG4340Our project partner, Thanet District Council, has now released the documents to prospective tenderers for the Grade II*-listed Scenic Railway engineering and trains contract. The next package for the Scenic Railway structure build will be released early in the New Year and the Construction Management contract expressions of interest are now being evaluated.

Meanwhile, rides restoration work continues with David Littleboy and Roger Sibley in Wakefield. We look forward to exhibiting the rides restoration work next year in the Dreamland amusement arcade visitor and learning centre.

 

STUDENT PROJECTS FOR 2014

January sees the launch of our Academic Research Access programme, which was successfully piloted with the Kent School of Architecture project in 2011resulting in a short listing for a Times Higher Education Award.

Participating projects include twenty-five interior design students from the Canterbury School of Architecture responding to Dreamland’s designated Visitor and Learning Centre in the Grade II*-listed seafront amusement arcade and the University for the Creative foundation students creating 3D designs for landscaping, lighting and moth-balled areas of the park.

Also attached to the programme is Canterbury Christ Church Programme Director of Photography, Rob Ball, who is creating a series of tintype photographs of the Dreamland site and its heritage assets. Rob uses a Wet Plate Collodion process, which was introduced in the 1850s. The process is notoriously inconvenient and unpredictable as glass plates have to be coated, sensitised, exposed and developed in the space of about 15 minutes, requiring a darkroom on site. Changes in temperature, chemicals, handling, light and humidity have an effect on the final outcome, but the result is a unique image in response to Dreamland’s archive, heritage assets and evolution.

Catering students at East Kent College were given the challenge to make canapés for a 1930s menu for the fundraising art auction – they were sensational! We look forward to developing training opportunities with the college in the New Year – particularly in the catering department – yum!

THANET SKILLS STUDIO VISITS DREAMLAND

In spring 2013 a Dreamland presentation given to students at the Thanet Skills Studio ignited an interest in developing skills in restoration. Thanet Skills Studio’s BTEC construction students visited the Dreamland site on the 13 December 2013 and are now working with The Dreamland Trust to develop a HLF Young Roots funding application.

If successful, the programme will include field trips, workshops and skills training with Dreamland’s rides restoration team. The group will be involved in up-cycling and refurbishment of some of Dreamland’s ride parts and artefacts.

Thanet Skills Studio

THE GARDEN GATE PROJECT

We are very much looking forward to working with The Garden Gate project next year to help grow Dreamland. The project, under the management of Paul Boyce at Northdown Park, is doing some fantastic work with adults with mental health issues and learning difficulties.

A programme of activities is being developed to include growing plants at the Garden Gate, planting at Dreamland and creating animal topiary and green sculptures for Dreamland.
SEAS

Earlier this year, Canterbury Christ Church University was successful in securing HLF funding to launch the South East Archive of Seaside photography project. Our volunteer archivist is now attached to the SEAS photography project and receiving training and professional development. The SEAS website will eventually have a portal to the Dreamland archive. The Dreamland Visitor & Learning Centre will act as an archive hub for collating and process archive material for both SEAS and the Dreamland archive.

And finally…
A mysterious trunk has arrived in Margate – we’ll be taking a closer look soon and will tell you more next month…

2013 DECEMBER NEWSLETTER

SEASONAL GREETINGS!

Between mid-day and 3pm on the 16 November 2013, Dreamland opened its gates to the public for the first time since the park officially closed in 2006. Over 2,300 people came to the Dreamland site to meet The Dreamland Trust to learn about Dreamland’s past, present and future and to share their memories and experiences of Dreamland.

On the day, more than 160 people registered to volunteer their time and resources to help rebuild Dreamland. Approximately 80 people potted plants on the site to take home, nurture and return to Dreamland in 2014 to transplant in memory of Dreamland’s 1870s pleasure garden and to create an interpretative green space around ‘Lord’ George Sanger’s Grade II-listed menagerie cages.

In the evening 250 people attended a celebrity fund raising art auction, organised by Fontaine Decorative, in Dreamland’s disused seafront amusement arcade. £25,000 was raised toward transforming the arcade into a Visitor and Learning Centre to deliver the pre-opening Activity Plan programme in spring 2014. The event was a sell out within a week of announcing ticket sales.

On the 30 November 2013 fifty volunteers took part in the Big Clear day to help clear moss, weeds and rubbish from the site. This group included the young, middle aged, retired, physically challenged and people with severe learning difficulties.

These events were designed to mark the successful outcome of the CPO challenge. Their success is an indication of the passion, appetite and support for the project and the pulling power of Dreamland.

Having ended the year on a high note, we are now looking forward to the New Year and a new era for Dreamland under a new, full-time Project Director.

PROJECT UP-DATE FROM THE NEW LANDOWNERS

Our project partner, Thanet District Council, has now released the documents to prospective tenderers for the Grade II*-listed Scenic Railway engineering and trains contract.

VISITOR & LEARNING CENTRE FOR DREAMLAND

With the support and funds raised by Fontaine Decorative, the local community and stakeholders and we have already begun work on the design and content for Dreamland’s Visitor & Learning Centre for Easter 2014.

The former amusement arcade in Dreamland’s Grade II*-listed cinema building will be transformed, by HemingwayDesign and our creative community, into an informative, interactive and fun environment evoking the atmosphere of Dreamland and a taste of things to come in 2015.

Run by a team of volunteer greeters and guides the centre will act as an information point describing Dreamland’s rich history, the rides restoration process and future plans supported by a programme of pop-up events and activities in the build up to Dreamland’s opening.

Up-dates and events will be posted on the website news and events page

MYSTERY AND DRAMA FOR THANET’S SCHOOLS

One of our first activities for January is the launch of a joint project with Powell-Cotton Museum following a successful £15,000 funding bid to Artswork (South East).

Artswork is investing in innovative, bespoke partnerships between the cultural sector and schools that can help facilitate a change in the pattern of school engagement with museum learning and ensure that more children and young people experience the richness of museum-based learning.

Mystery and drama is at the heart of this project, so we can’t reveal too much other than to say our local schools will be embarking on a journey of discovery with some surprising outcomes!

We are delighted to be working with Keith Dunmall at the Powell-Cotton – the heritage links between the museum and Dreamland are really exciting and we look forward to starting the  project in the New Year.

THE GARDENT GATE PROJECT

We are very much looking forward to working with The Garden Gate project next year to help grow Dreamland. The project, under the management of Paul Boyce at Northdown Park, is doing some fantastic work with adults with mental health issues and learning difficulties.

A programme of activities is being developed to include growing plants at the Garden Gate, planting at Dreamland and creating animal topiary and green sculptures for Dreamland.

STUDENT PROJECTS FOR 2014

Early next year we begin a 3D design unit with the University of Arts foundation students. The Dreamland Trust has written a ‘client brief’ asking for solutions to landscaping using alternatives to organic material, lighting and treatment of moth-balled areas.

We also embark on a twelve week long project with 2nd year Interior Architecture students who are tasked with finding treatments and solutions for the planned Visitor & Learning Centre in Dreamland’s disused seafront amusement arcade due to open Easter 2014.

At the end of this year, catering students at East Kent College were given the challenge to make canapés for a 1930s menu for the fundraising art auction – they were sensational! We look forward to developing training opportunities with the college in the New Year – particularly in the catering department – yum!

AND FINALLY…

Our grateful thanks to Stuart and Kiel at Fontaine Decorative and Carol and Richard at the Harbour Arms for the fundraising activities they have organised this year.

We have an awful lot of people to mention and thank for supporting The Dreamland Trust this year so, to name but a few and in no particular order…

THANK YOU!

A big THANK YOU goes to everyone who contributed toward last Saturday’s Open Day and Fundraising Art Auction. Both events were a tremendous success and would not have happened without the enthusiasm and generosity of our partners, contributors, sponsors, supporters and volunteers – Dreamland is firmly on the map and we are full steam ahead for a 2015 opening! 

During the day we welcomed over 2,300 lovely people to the Dreamland site in just three hours!  Plus a large contingent of classic and vintage vehicle enthusiasts gathered in the events area to show their support for Dreamland.

Generally traders in the old town reported a busier than usual mid-November Saturday and businesses along the seafront, toward the station, also benefitted from the extra footfall the Dreamland events created.

At the Open Day we registered around 160 volunteers and linked approximately 80 people to the Dreamland archive resulting in offers of photographs and recorded personal memories and histories.

Hundreds of people potted plants, took them home to nurture, and will return in 2014 to plant a garden for Dreamland.

We also collected thousands of peoples’ memories and thoughts on the comment board and luggage tags and have signed up volunteers for the next community engagement event, The Big Clear Day, on the 30 November 2013.

The celebrity fundraising art auction was a sell out and raised an estimated £25,000 (less costs) toward opening the Dreamland Visitor and Learning Centre spring 2014. We will publish the final figure and more photographs in the November newsletter.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who made Saturday’s Open Day and Art Auction such memorable events, in particular…

COMMUNITY TAKES BACK DREAMLAND

CIMG4340CIMG4333

At mid-day on Saturday 16 November 2013, there will be an opportunity to meet The Dreamland Trust, and project partners, on the disused Dreamland site in Margate, Kent to find out about the exciting future plans for Dreamland, learn about the rides restoration programme, hear about the next steps and find out how you can help rebuild Dreamland for 2015.

Please be aware that the park site has deteriorated greatly since it closed in 2006. Due to the condition of the site we advise appropriate footwear and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

There are currently no on-site facilities although our neighbouring eateries will be open for meals, snacks and drinks. The site is not suitable for dogs although guide dogs are an exception.

Meet us in front of the Grade II*-listed Scenic Railway at mid-day on Saturday 16 November 2013. This is a free community engagement event. No booking required.
