Manchester Zombie Walk 2009

Posted in Photography on 12 July, 2009 (21:50)



Today Manchester’s streets played host to hundreds of the shambling undead in an attempt to break a Guinness world record and also raise money for charity. Sadly the record wasn’t broken (a mere 160 Zombies short!) but a great and slightly weird time was had by all!


Emma and I all Zombified – I attempted to go as Dead Risings Frank West, just a little deader than usual!


The deads ranks begin to build


To kick everthing off, some professional dancers re-enacted the Thriller dance, was really crowded so I didn’t really see much 🙁


To the streets!


Braaaaaaaaaains


Constabulary Braaaaaaaaaains! This guy was a great sport, kudos.


So many Zombies! nowhere was safe…


Not Pizza Hut…


…not the buses…


…and certainly not the Pubs!

A few Zombie portraits below:


Zombie Shopping!


Zombie Postie!


And my attempt to be a tubby Zombie Frank West

All in all, really good and random fun! They’re going to try and break the record again in October, so if Zombies are your thing, head on down!

    Awesome pictures! Nice to see you got quite the crowd. I’ve put a link on my blog so people can come see your photos.

    I was fortunate enough to be in Manchester yesterday and catch this spectacle – it certainly was an amazing site and you’ve got some great pictures there. The Printworks was absolutely packed with zombies!

  3. Melanie on 13 July, 2009 at (10:57)

    I found this on a google search for “Manchester Zombie Walk” – excellent pictures! I didn’t see the zombie postman or zombie shopper!

  4. Bex on 13 July, 2009 at (17:31)

    Whoooo! Me and my dad are on this!!! My dad is the postman and i’m next to him, yaaaayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!

    @The Zed Word
    It was a really fun time and the pictures really don’t do the crowd justice, thanks for the link! 🙂

     

    @Mac Thomas
    Know what you mean about the Printworks, it was wall to wall in there! At one point the registration queue was all the way to the top entrance, but alas no record 🙁

     

    @Melanie
    Yeah somehow I seem to be ranking ok on google for this particular post! During the walk I was straggling quite near the back, glad I did though else I would’ve missed these characters! Just had a look at your pics on Flickr, you got some great ones!

     

    @Bex
    That’s awesome! your dad’s makeup was amazing, and the way he kept trying to deliver that bloody letter was classic, I can email over the pic if you like?

  6. Mac Thomas on 13 July, 2009 at (23:43)

    @James
    The walk was on the North West Tonight news, not sure if you saw it (or if you’re even in the North West region). Found you on Google this morning as well so you must of got picked up by them pretty quickly.

    @Melanie
    Had a look at your pics as well – some great ones there.

  7. Darby Sawchuk on 14 July, 2009 at (07:18)

    I only just now heard about this. I’m pretty disappointed. I’ve been to a couple of these in Calgary and loved photographing the characters there. 🙁

  8. Dave K on 14 July, 2009 at (09:57)

    Pics are great, top event to police–yep if anyone has any of the pics of me(copper on bike) with skeleton facemask on please put them on… Great turn out, I reckon 1500 people easy. record was blown away… you all needed to register for the votes to count Well done all

  9. James on 14 July, 2009 at (18:02)

    @ Mac Thomas
    I actually live over in Bradford, but just watched the report again online, awesome! Can’t believe you guys get the Krypton Factor dude presenting your news, that’s amazing 🙂

     

    @Darby Sawchuk
    Don’t worry! they’re trying for the record again in October so keep an eye on their official site for details http://www.zombie-aid.com

     

    @Dave K
    Aw no way, I saw you outside the Printworks as we were all heading back in! I didn’t get a picture though i’m afraid but i’m sure someone else has! Hats off to the police that day, everything ran so smoothly!

  10. James on 14 July, 2009 at (19:04)

    @Dave K
    Good news! I’ve been looking at other peoples pics on flickr and think i found you click here and here!

  11. lindsay smith on 16 July, 2009 at (10:19)

    great event, can’t wait unitl the next

  12. Bex on 16 July, 2009 at (16:06)

    Hey James! A little unfortunate thing happened when you sent the pic, I don’t know if you got my email about it so i’ll post here just in case you didn’t. Anyway, the picture said it ‘wasen’t properly decoded.’ Perhaps you know what that means? But thanks for posting all of these great pics, you did a great job 😀

  13. James on 27 July, 2009 at (07:03)

    @Lindsay Smith
    Roll on October!

    @Bex
    Weird.. i guess it wasn’t properly encoded.. or something. I’m a webby tech person by trade and that error just makes my brain hurt! Heres a link to my flickr which has a pretty large version of the pic on it http://www.flickr.com/photos/32706275@N03/3713773811/sizes/o/

    Thanks for the pic compliments! flickrs full of a ton of waaay better pics of the days events 🙂
