Dreamland Supports Comic Relief Red Nose Day – Margate Easter Comedy Weekend


The Dreamland Trust is supporting Comic Relief with event partners, Beeping Bush and the Tom Thumb Theatre, this Easter weekend with a programme of events designed to tickle your funny bone and celebrate our great British comedy heritage.

Dr Oliver Double will open Margate’s Easter Bank Holiday Easter Weekender at the Theatre Royal, Margate at 6.30pm on 31 March 2013 with a light-hearted talk about the history of cine-variety – a mix of live and cinematic entertainment similar to the type of programme one would have enjoyed at Dreamland in the 1930s.

Olly’s entertaining talk will be followed by a special screening of Laurel and Hardy’s short film, Them Thar Hills – the first film ever to be shown in Dreamland Margate’s cinema when it opened to the public in 1935! The state of the art 2,200 seat super-cinema complex replaced Dreamland’s 1923 nine-hundred seat Variety Cinema, which was converted from the original Hall by the Sea’s ballroom

Dr Double’s talk plus Laurel and Hardy screening is suitable for family audiences. For tickets, times and full Margate’s Easter Bank Holiday Easter Weekender programme please visit www.2dayslaughter.co.uk website – booking is absolutely recommended!
