Harry Shearer, best known for being the voice of Mr Burns and Ned Flanders in The Simpsons, tweeted about his visit to the exhibition yesterday (Wednesday) calling on his 115,000 followers to go along.

He tweeted a photo of the ice cream van where visitors can buy souvenir programmes from the show, and described it as ‘brilliant’.

Shearer follows Mark Ronson, Russell Brand, Jack Black, Darren Criss and John Taylor and Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran in visiting the Tropicana site where the show opened three weeks ago, and has already brought worldwide exposure to Weston.

The latest wave of tickets for Dismaland went on sale at 10am yesterday, including for an evening of comedy featuring Katherine Ryan and others, and sold out within an hour.

If you have not been able to get along to Dismaland yet, here’s our gallery of the best things to see at the exhibition.
