In 2015 Weston was proud to play host to world renowned street artist Banksy’s curated art exhibition “Dismaland” an amazing experience with installations from international artists including Damian Hirst, and a very different take on traditional theme parks! The event saw unprecedented media coverage worldwide with an audience in excess of 200,000 arriving from every corner of the world, and brought an estimated £7million into the local economy.
