A Weston venue will reopen next week.

The Tropicana has announced that Funland Theme Park will open its doors to visitors on Monday.

The Tropicana has been closed for the vast majority of the past 12 months due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

With the roadmap out of lockdown announced, it is now possible for the venue to plan to re-open to the public. 

The second step of the roadmap laid out by the Government gives permission for outdoor attractions including theme parks to re-open no earlier than April 12. 

Following the opening of Funland, and in accordance with the third stage of the Government’s plan from May 17 to allow larger performances and sporting events in indoor venues with a capacity of 1,000 people or half-full (whichever is lower), the venue will host its first indoor event on June 10 with a theatre performance. 

The Tropicana is looking forward to welcoming its first audiences back with a show from Co:Lab Creative and the cast of Shaker’s Re-Stirred, taking to the stage on June 10, 11 and 12 with audiences being limited, seated throughout performances with table service and with different groups of attendees being socially distanced from each other and within their bubbles.
