The Only Fools and Horses Jolly Boys Outing Exhibition welcomed nearly 3,000 visitors in its opening weekend at Dreamland Margate. Situated in the beautifully restored 1920s Ballroom, fans queued up to take a look at the sets, memorabilia, props and costumes, from the British Cult TV series.
For the duration of the Bank Holiday weekend, guests were in for a special treat, as John Challis AKA Boycie and Sue Holderness AKA Marlene made an appearance. The on-screen married couple greeted fans with book signings, photos and autographs and reminisced about the ‘Jolly Boys Outing’ episode that was filmed here at Dreamland in 1989.
With the opening weekend to be very popular in particular, many people waited patiently to meet the two British TV icons. Visitor, Dan Hall says, ‘Queued for three hours. Well worth the wait. John and Sue are proper nice people. Look forward to the next one.’
Eddie Kemsley CEO, Dreamland says:

Feedback has been outstanding, with people raving about getting to see genuine props and actual costumes used in the filming of the cult British TV series, along with the chance to meet two main characters, Boycie (John Challis) and Marlene (Sue Holderness), who have been with us all weekend.
