28th & 29th September 2019 11:00 - 17:00

On Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th September, artists and art lovers will converge at Dreamland to get ready for one of the biggest arts weekends of the year.

To celebrate the arrival of the Turner Prize 2019 in Margate and the start of the Margate Now festival, Dreamland is hosting a day of artistic delight at the park.

The renowned Art Car Boot Fair will take over Arlington Car Park on Saturday for a special one day event, with dozens of artists showing and selling incredible works of art created especially for the event. With all manner of entertainment, tasty food and drink, and a great party atmosphere, this is an event not to miss on one of the biggest weekends in the arts of the year. The Art Car Boot Fair team are selling 1,000 advance tickets with priority entry at 1pm. Day tickets will be sold on the door.

In addition, the weekend will also mark the grand unveiling of the winner of Dreamland’s Tiina Turner Prize on the Mural By The Sea billboard, a public competition to find a new work of public art for the park.

Our famous Tiina Turner head – an 7m inflatable sculpture of Tina Turner’s head with its own karaoke booth inside - will be also open for visits and songs in Hall By The Sea.

The Turner Prize 2019 exhibition opens on Saturday 28th September at the Turner Contemporary gallery in Margate.
