Banksy-mania has truly taken over Weston-super-Mare as Weston Mercury readers start queueing to get an exclusive first look at the art exhibition at the Tropicana.

The queue is stretching along the promenade this morning.The queue is stretching along the promenade this morning.

The former outdoor pool complex has been transformed by Banksy into Dismaland ‘fun’ fair.

In the Mercury edition currently on sale there is a voucher which can be cut out and exchanged for a wristband at Mercury beach hut on Weston’s seafront.

There are just 1,000 wristbands and the first of them will be handed out at 9am on a first come, first served basis. Terms and conditions of usage do apply and are made clear within the paper.

The exhibition will then be open from 11am-3pm for those with a wristband.

It will then open daily from tomorrow until September 27. Tickets, priced £3, will be available online from www.dismaland.co.uk later today (Friday).

Mercury readers have started queueing for their free ticket on the promenade, with the first people heading down there at about 3am.
