BANKSY’S Dismaland has put Weston-super-Mare on the world stage and now one of Hollywood’s biggest names is rumoured to be preparing a visit to the town.
Brad Pitt is reportedly getting a private tour around the ‘bemusement park’ – but it looks like his wife, Angelina Jolie, and the couple’s six children have been left at home in Los Angeles.
A source told the Mirror: “Brad has followed Banksy’s work for years now and really loves his ideology, so he is making special arrangements to ensure he can get down to the park.
“Brad would bring a bit too much glamour to what’s meant to be a thoroughly depressing visit, so Banksy granted him special permission to visit before it opens.
“The first tickets allow entry at 11am, so Brad will have the run of Dismaland in the morning before then during his visit next week.”
If the rumours are true Brad Pitt will not be the first A-lister to visit the park, Jack Black and Nicholas Holt were two of the celebrities spotted at an exclusive opening night last week.
Ellie Goulding also posted photos to her Instagram page of the exhibition at the Tropicana and Grant Marshall, aka Daddy G of Massive Attack – who have been confirmed to be performing at Dismaland next month – also attended the VIP event.
Tickets for the general public were first made available online yesterday, but sold out in less than an hour.
A fresh batch of tickets will be released each day, for information on how to get your hands on some click here.
