http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-33999495Graffiti 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 six weeks.
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".

The entire exhibition is staffed by morose Dismaland employees who seem completely uninterested in being helpful or informative. Even trying to find the exit was a near herculean effort.
Only £3 entry!
