Dearest amazing undead darlings,
The big day is practically knocking at the tomb door! As always,we have prepared a list of things you need to know before the zomazing day we are about to have. Read on, rotten ones!
HAVE YOU REGISTERED?
Make sure you have registered so you are sent the map and any other information you might need. This is free and only takes a minute!
BRING THE MAP
Print the map out and take it with you. Although there are stewards, they are few and the zombie horde is legion, so be a helpful zombie and be self-organised! You can also keep a bloodshot eyeball on twitter (@WZDlondon), where we’ll post updates when we’re heading off.
DO YOU HAVE YOUR AFTER PARTY TICKETS?
Don’t want the day to end? We have an exclusive “UNDEAD ONLY” bar at the Piccadilly Institute. This means you don’t have to shoulder your way through the masses of living Londoners for your next drink! So come along to dance like you’ve just been dug up at the World Zombie Night party, make sure you bring a photo ID (no photocopies). If you bought a ticket, your name will be on the door. If you didn’t grab a ticket yet, pre-sales end Friday at 5pm, grab your tickets now to make sure you get in! Failing that – there may be some on the door (cash only). The party runs from 6pm-3am, but be sure you get in the venue before 9.30pm, shamble there quickly!
HAVE YOU READ THE RULES?
They are few, but they are essential if we want to keep this event running year after year! Please make sure you read them here and stick to them. Don’t bring anything that resembles a weapon, don’t flyer, basically DON’T BE THAT ZOMBIE! If you see any behavior that concerns you, please speak to a steward. We’ve worked really hard to make sure this event is good zombie fun for everyone and has a good reputation so it can keep on going year after year.
ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE ENGLISH WEATHER?
The zombie virus is bad enough without having to cope with post-WZD snuffles. Make sure your costume is warm enough, that you can keep protected from the rain (fingerbones crossed for a fine day!). We will be doing a lot of shambling, smart zombies wear comfy shoes…
ARE YOU A SOCIAL MEDIA SAVVY ZOMBIE?
Keep in touch with the horde by using the hashtag #WZD2016, Join us on Facebook here and follow us on Twitter @WZDlondon. For those who Snapchat, we’ve got a filter for you. At various stops throughout the walk you’ll find geofilters to use by swiping left after a snap has been taken (location services will need to be enabled for the feature to work). In the meantime follow us at wzdlondon. Those on Instagram, tag your photo with #WZD2016 and you might end up in our Gallery!
FINALLY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY…
HAVE YOU DONATED TO CHARITY?
World Zombie Day is about having a fantastic day with the zombie horde, and also about raising money and awareness for St Mungos Broadway, the charity who do amazing work helping the homeless. If you’re coming along please donate by texting BRNZ81 £3 to 70070, or donate on our JustGiving page.
SEE YOU ON SATURDAY LONDON ZOMBIE HORDE!
