A grey, bleak and wonderful celebration of the bizarre all wrapped up in a desolate seaside resort!

Dismaland is the latest and largest installation of the well-known artist Banksy.

The political views and opinions / farce of a Disney park are clear to see in every piece throughout the exhibit. The best part is inside the main castle, which you will have to visit the exhibition to see.

This great quote is from the park’s official brochure:

“Are you looking for an alternative to the soulless sugar-coated banality of the average family day out? Or just somewhere cheaper. Then this is the place for you—a chaotic new world where you can escape from mindless escapism. Instead of a burger stall, we have a museum. In place of a gift shop we have a library, well, we have a gift shop as well.

Bring the whole family to come and enjoy the latest addition to our chronic leisure surplus—a bemusement park. A theme park who’s big theme is: theme parks should have bigger themes…

This event contains adult themes, distressing imagery, extended use of strobe lighting, smoke effects and swearing. The following items are strictly prohibited: knives, spray cans, illegal drugs, and lawyers from the Walt Disney corporation.”

The park is only open for 5 weeks (22nd August – 27th September 2015) and at £3 a ticket it is in no doubt “bang for your buck!”
11am – 11pm. Admission £3, free for the under 5’s.
