SLIDES, rides and waves are expected to feature in a second swimming pool at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre – at a cost of £9million.

LIVE comedy, music, theatre and dance all feature in the future of the Tropicana.


MORE than £500,000 will be spent on Weston’s Tropicana, but the long-term future of the former swimming pool still remains unclear.

MORE than half a million pounds of council reserves are being earmarked for an upgrade to Weston’s Tropicana to allow it to host arts and entertainment events.


ISN’T it just typical? Weston waits 15 years for a ‘risky and subversive’ retro-style theme park attraction to revitalise the derelict Tropicana, and then it seems two could come along, almost at once.


THE people of Weston-super-Mare reacted to the news that the derelict Tropicana could play host to ‘Dreamland’ – after members of North Somerset Council were apparently inspired by the revival of the Margate attraction on a ‘fact finding’ mission.
