Graffiti artist Banksy has announced an exhibition at a derelict seafront lido in Weston-super-Mare.

The Dismaland show – which will also feature work from Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer and Jimmy Cauty – will take over the Tropicana site for five weeks.

“I loved the Tropicana as a kid, so getting to throw these doors open again is a real honour,” Banksy said.

The show is his first in the UK since 2009’s Banksy v Bristol Museum show which drew huge crowds.

Banksy described the show as a “family theme park unsuitable for children”. See full article>>
