The now legendary Cockles and Muscles pride after party is coming back to Dreamland Margate. Filling the Ballroom and the Roller Disco with fabulous fun on August 12th, expect glitter, glam outfits and drag queens - with DJs and live acts keeping the crowds dancing all night long.
Cockles and Muscles will take place from 9pm – 2am. Tickets are £15 in advance and are available via dreamland.co.uk. More live acts will be announced soon.
The event is part of Margate Pride, which will begin with a parade from The Lido at 2pm, finishing at Dreamland Margate at 3pm, when there will be a family friendly afternoon rally with live entertainment and speeches from national LGBTQ+ figures.
As the evening draws in at the park, DJs will take to the outdoor Scenic Stage - with Faithless’ Sister Bliss set to get the party started with support from Kideko and TCTS, before Cockles and Muscles gets started at 9pm.
