Dreamland Margate hosts an all-star extravaganza celebrating diversity and equality on Saturday, August 12 as part of the legendary annual Margate Pride celebrations.

Featuring the likes of B*witched, Claire Richards, Duncan James and Lisa Maffia, Dreamland’s iconic Scenic Stage becomes the rainbow-soaked backdrop for an unforgettable day of queer celebration for all the family.

Hosted by RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant River Medway, the line-up also stars singer Tom Rasmussen featuring Margate’s very-own social singing choir, Jonbers, Just May, Asttina Mandella, Le Fil and Ziah Ziah. And for ardent party-goers, The Pussycat Dolls’ very own Kimberly Wyatt will host the official Pride Afterparty with her famed Don’t Cha Disco at Dreamland’s Hall by the Sea, with support from Dame Jame and Mr Theo.

Margate Pride at Dreamland is presented as part of a town-wide takeover that includes a series of outdoor performances at The Oval Bandstand, a reclamation of Margate’s history through queer beauty pageant Mx Margate, the raucous Little Gay Brother takeover at Margate Arts Club and the infamous seafront Pride parade.

Margate Pride serves as a platform to champion LGBTQ+ rights, spread awareness, and foster a sense of unity within the community. The event embraces the ethos of equality and creates a safe space for self-expression, while also encouraging conversations about the challenges faced by LGBTQ+ individuals and the ongoing fight for acceptance worldwide.

​​James Penfold, Head of Live Entertainment at Dreamland, said: “We’re so excited to welcome ’90s pop icons B*Witched to headline this summer’s Margate Pride, alongside pop royalty Claire Richards, and musician, Vogue columnist and queer icon Tom Rassmussan. Pride is everyone’s favourite show of the summer, and we can’t wait!”

​​Edele Lynch from B*Witched said: “We are really looking forward to playing Dreamland. It looks like the perfect setting for a festival. What more can you ask for than family, music and fun. I’m going to bring my family, too, so we don’t miss out”.
