Great for 2015. See what has already been achieved. Why not drop in to Pop-Up in Margate. Get a cup of Tea and perhaps a cake from the Cafe while you take the time to look around.








We would like to thank the business community in Margate for their support in Making Margate Magical at Christmas this year.  Through the combined efforts of Margate Town Team working in partnership with Retailers, Restaurants, Hotels, Pubs, Local Artists, Singers, Dancers, Thanet District Council. Local Councillors, Mayor’s Office, Turner Contemporary, Thanet Farmer’s Market and Margate Round Table we as a community were able to provide the foundations for an even bigger and better Xmas season for 2015. 


Though the last seasonal event was the Christmas Night Market – there were several events from the Dreamland Trust, The Tudor House Museum, The Winter Gardens, The Westgate Pavilion and The Mayor’s Office which paved the way in shining a spotlight on Margate as a place of hospitality, art, culture and fun.


The Night Market itself brought together a variety of artisan foods and gift products available to sample and buy .This combined with the schedule of entertainment throughout the town which included a variety of song and Dance acts of various styles provided by Off the Hook Productions alongside Morgan’s Margate who carried out a wonderful tutorial set in the upper high street and Darkisseddayz for ‘Graffiti Xmas’.   Christmas would not be complete without the presence of Santa who attended to meet and greet the young (and the young at heart).  Thanks also go to Margate Round Table - & for supporting Margate in bringing not only Santa but also the gorgeous miniature donkeys ( A big hit) and for their charity fundraising efforts through the evening. 

If this was not enough – Late night opening for most retailers in the area meant even more reason for locals and visitors to ‘shop local’.  Thanks go out particularly to Sharon of Edinburgh Woollen Mill who energised the shops in the upper end of the high street and to Di at Petals who ‘when the going got tough’ in terms of lighting the upper end of the high street took a really proactive approach in supporting the other businesses and MTT in ensuring that Lighting was provided.   Additional thanks go to Goodwins – for providing Santa’s sleigh and lighting sources.   Last but by no means least Thanks go out to Nik – the electrician and those that kindly and generously donated power from their stores – notably Bentleys and Thanet Bedz
