Beach of the Dead 2015 – The Brighton Zombie Walk
We are getting more and more questions about this Brighton fun walk and I tried to find the answer to the main question: “Will the Beach of the Dead happen this year again?”
The Brighton Zombie Walk was incredibly popular since 2007 and according to DailyMail, More than 12,000 participants and spectators attended last year’s frightfest. The problem is, even the undead have to worry about health and safety and that cost money.
When will be the 2015 Brighton Zombie Walk taking place
I checked the (non existent – ZOMBIE???) website beachofthedead.com and I’ve been able to recover (thanks to few tricks) a bit of information that can be helpful finding the answer if and when will the 2015 Brighton Zombie Walk be taking place.On a stormy October evening, Beach of the Dead was created. Organiser Kate was fed up with the lack of Halloween events around in 2007 and craved a macabre atmosphere. With a love of horror and any excuse to cover herself head-to-toe in blood, Beach of the Dead was born. Beach of the Dead puts the ‘fun’ in ‘funeral’, the ‘laughter’ in ‘slaughter’ and invites the whole family to get involved. Beach of the Dead takes zombie walks to a new level, Brighton zombie parade attracts thousands of participants and like-minded onlookers from across the globe.In 2012, Beach of the Dead broke the UK Guinness Book of records largest zombie walk with 6,000 attendees. However, with the good, the bad must follow – Beach of the Dead did not take place 2013 or 2014 due to lack of funding and time pressure. The parade is entirely funded by our organiser, therefore the parade was taken back to the butchers block to dissect, manipulate and create a monster which shall return in 2015. In the meantime Brighton will not miss out, Beach of the Dead is organising fund raisers and smaller scale events to help raise funds to bring back the dead…
Bring out your dead.
Sounds promising?Here is another reason why I’m more on the positive side. Last year (2014) the day after Halloween, there was another fundraiser – a late-night screening of Shaun of the Dead at Brighton Komedia. The organiser Kate Amer said: “This fundraising event is vital to Beach of the Dead’s future. This event will allow us to go hard and gruesome on a comeback for Beach of the Dead 2015. All funds raised with go directly to the event, allowing me to go to the powers that be with a plan of action for our return for 2015.”Hypothetically it will take place October 24, 2015 at 3pm – West Pier2007 – Saturday, November 3, 2007 at 4:00pm – 12:00am2008 – Saturday, November 1, 2008 (not sure about the time)2009 – Saturday, October 31, 2009 at 3pm2010 – Saturday, October 30, 2010 at 3pm2011 – Saturday October 22nd 2011 at 3pm (this year was a change in the starting point. Instead of Brighton train station, the zombie walk started in Victoria Gardens (Next to The Royal Pavilion), finishing in Concorde 2 on Madeira Drive2012 – Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 3pm – West Pier (change in location again to keep the dead right on the beach and far from the living), also finishing in Concorde 2 on Madeira DriveI have no idea and I’m just guessing the date and place. I’ve tried to contact Katie Amer at the emails (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) without any answer and using Facebook and Twitter with exactly the same result.The social pages I’ve tried:facebook.com/groups/Beachofthedead/facebook.com/katie.g.amertwitter.com/beachofthedeadBeach of the Dead 2015As I said earlier, the hypothetical date and place is just my own wild guess. If you want to be sure, please try to contact Katie Amer or someone else from the Facebook Group and you’ll may have more luck. If you’ll have any info, leave it in the comments for all of us. I’ll try to get more info too and a bit closer towards October will update this post.
