MORE familiar faces have been flocking to Dismaland as the attraction entered its fourth week of opening.

Matt Bellamy, lead singer of alt-rockers Muse, TV presenter Dawn O’Porter, Madness musician Chris Foreman and Food And Drink host Tom Kerridge have all ventured down to the seafront exhibition, adding their names to the growing list of familiar faces to have visited the site.

Bellamy was spotted pedalling along to music on a bicycle exhibit in Dismaland’s Guerilla Island area, while Chris Foreman tweeted the show had been ‘excellent fun for all the family’.

Michelin-starred chef Kerridge, who grew up in Wiltshire, said visiting the Tropicana was a trip back to his ‘childhood hangout’, and Dawn O’Porter, who has presented a number of series on Channel 4, told her 144,000 Instagram followers ‘you should all go’.

The group follow names including comedian Russell Brand, Glee star Darren Criss and movie actor Jack Black who have visited Weston since Banksy’s show opened on August 21, with Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt also rumoured by the tabloid press to have enjoyed a tour of the site.

Tickets for the last weekend of Dismaland are now sold out, but you can still enter a competition to win four tickets to the final day until tomorrow (Thursday) - for more information, click here.
