WATCH: The trailer for Banksy's Dismaland has arrived

“Where the magic never ends. For five weeks only.”

THE TRAILER FOR Banksy’s latest project has been released.

Dismaland is the graffiti artist’s take on Disneyland.

According to the BBC, Banksy described the exhibition as a “family theme park unsuitable for children”.

The artist added that many of the works require “audience participation”.

“A dead princess is only complete when surrounded by gawping crowds with their cameras out or the opportunity to photograph yourself pulling an amazed expression when a killer whale leaps from a toilet.”

The exhibition, which features work from several artists including Banksy, is located at the Weston-super-Mare seafront in Somerset and will be open for the next five weeks.

The ‘bemusement park’ includes a Cinderella crash scene complete with paparazzi, reminiscent of Princess Diana’s death, and a Jimmy Savile-themed Punch and Judy show.
