Check out Apocalypse Events – friends of World Zombie Day London

Hello the horde! As you know, we strive to make sure World Zombie Day is one of the best days of the year, and this does involve some costs. As your shambling undead team of organisers have none of the shiny stuff (it must have fallen out of our pockets when we died) we ask sponsors to help, and here are a few words from our old friends Apocalypse Events/Bunker 51 who will be joining us again this year! Thanks guys for your support!

Award Winning Apocalypse Events offer a range of immersive experiences across London providing unique, realistic, and creative frights and delights.

We specialise in running regular events such as our AS SEEN ON TV Zombie SWAT Training and winner of 2014’s SCAR award, Zombie Blitz 1940.

Blitz 2

For over 10 years, our event creators have been putting together themed experiences across a range of venues featuring high end immersive scenery and scenarios. These include our sci-fi space station Laser Tag arena, which saw guests take part in an epic battle to save the galaxy; and our militarised underground nuclear Bunker 51, where we take paintball, laser tag and airsoft to another level… and of course our nationally sold zombie scare events!

If our existing events and scenarios don’t quite cater to your needs, we will readily tailor them to your whim or work with you to create your own bespoke experience. Don’t be shy – our creative team love new projects and make the impossible happen! We’ve previously been asked to create unique, theatrical and immersive experiences for a large selection of high-profile clients – these range from game launches and PR events, to private parties and performances. Our bunker has also provided a creepy backdrop for various film & TV shows, you might have seen our Bunker 51 venue in Little Mix’s music video for Salute, The Only Way is Essex’s Christmas Special or in Channel 5’s How to Survive a Disaster Movie.

Recently our team have been helping out on some exciting projects and put on bespoke events for companies such as Sony, Virgin, Hasbro, Cineworld and much more. If you were lucky you might have run into (or away from!) some of our chained zombies moaning throughout Central London, or if you’re a real scare experience fan you might have already booked tickets for our upcoming Halloween pop-up event, Necropolis, London’s Journey of the DEAD.

We use our gore, ghost, and ghoul expertise to create bespoke experiences, events or party.  At Apocalypse Events we’re zombie mad but our expertise is in immersing our audiences in surreal and shocking scenarios, from horrifying scare mazes to intense theatre productions. Our engrossing events cover a wide range of genres from adrenaline-fueled military themed events to nightmare inducing ghost tours. Why not join us at one of our regular events! IF you are brave enough…

Zombie SWAT Training from Apocalypse Events/Bunker 51

Here’s another action-packed zombie adventure event from our friends at Apocalypse Events/Bunker 51

ZOMBIE SWAT TRAINING

The invasion has begun and soon London will be swarming with the UNDEAD. Step inside the battle zone; face your biggest fears and fight to save the world from imminent disaster.
The end is near and you must learn how to survive. Luckily you are one of the selected few deemed worthy to undergo intense zombie survival training from our undead response unit. Not only will you get to handle at least 3 different types of weaponry, you will also be taught life-saving techniques in how to immobilise and destroy the zombie hoard.
You will be given a secret evacuation point in the heart of London, and then be transported by our mission commanders to London’s underground zombie HQ, code name: BUNKER 51. The decommissioned nuclear Bunker, has been a research facility for zombie observation for over a decade and now with rumours of zombies attacking in London, Bunker 51 is ready to train recruits in the essentials of zombie survival.
Be prepared for London’s scariest and most realistic zombie-themed event.
You must be physically fit, emotionally sound and ready to blow some zombie brains out!
WARNING: This event is not for the faint-hearted. Expect big frights, gore and the end of civilization…

WZD loves SICK By Tom Leveen

Less than two weeks to go till the big day! We here at WZD London HQ are proper maggoty bookworm zombies and thought we’d share this soon-to-be-published zombie novel with you!

Breakfast Club meets The Walking Dead as a group of unlikely allies tries to survive a deadly outbreak in a locked-down high school…

SickMechfinal

Brian and his friends are not part of the cool crowd. They’re the misfits, the troublemakers — the ones who jump their High School’s electrified fence to skip school regularly. So when the virus breaks out, they’re the only ones with a chance of surviving…

The virus turns Brian’s classmates and teachers into bloodthirsty attackers who don’t die easily. In other words: Zombies. The whole school goes on lockdown and the military surrounds the fence, and Brian and his best friend Chad are safe (and stuck) in the theatre department — far from Brian’s sister, Kenzie and his ex-girlfriend with a panic attack problem, Laura. Brian and Chad, along with some of the theatre kids who he’d never given the time of day before, decide to find the girls and bring them to the safety of the theatre. But it won’t be easy and it will test everything they thought they knew about themselves and their classmates. In a world turned upside down, who exactly are the real monsters?

Sick will be published on 21st October 2013 by Amulet/Abrams and Chronicle Books.  Tom Leveen is the author of Party, Zero, and ManicPixieDreamGirl (Spring 2013). This is his first foray into the horror genre.
