It is worth noting how well the Dreamland Trust is now progressing.
"Work is already underway with millions of pounds of funding already secured to create the distinctly British amusement park of historic rides at Dreamland. The focal points of the project will be Dreamland’s trio of architectural gems, namely the fully restored and working Scenic Railway, the Dreamland cinema and Lord George Sanger’s animal cages."
Our Society was pleased to be consulted when securing the protection of these now unique animal cages.
