So it’s September and the Glasgow Zombie Walk looks like it’s officially dead. We had a good 2 years. 2 years isn’t really enough time for the zombie infestation to properly infest Glasgow, but for being first in Scotland it’s done well. It’s spread up North and down South to other cities so there’s that at least.
There will be many a lonely Zombie roaming Saturday 29th with no horde to lurch with, so stay safe y’all.
For the time being, the life of a Glasgow Zombie looks uncertain. There be zombie-friendly entertainment and venues a-plenty joining the Glasgow Zombie Walk cause, however there isn’t actually anywhere to zombie walk. 3000 zombies through Kelvingrove Park was too intimidating a site for some mortals, so it seems we might have to find new ground to hunt on. Which isn’t easy by the by.
If it’s not ‘The Glasgow Zombie Walk’ is it worth shambling 30 or 40 miles to invade somewhere else? Stirling? Edinburgh? Dundee? Perth? Loch Lomond? Arran? Shetland? Some random farm-house? Nine or ten bucks for a zombie to pay their way to someplace new. Worth it? In this day and age even zombies have to pay.
Saying that, I’d keep Saturday 29th October free. From 12pm onwards would be a good shout.
Word has it that the Arches are putting on a wee tour called ‘Ghost of Christmas’ until the 31st. Check www.ghostsofchristmas.com for info on a slightly warped take on Santa Claus and his Christmas fun. It’s in their basement, what could go wrong?
Well we taught those pesky humans a thing or two. Cheers ya’ll for an amazing turn-out – a big hand to the stewards (you’ll never beat the zombie horde, no matter how hard you try) and to the Zombie Lords: David the Zombie Lord of t’interspace, Andrew the Zombie Lord of Jam and Lindsay the Zombie Lady of Bloody Insurance.
Mayhap I’ll catch you next year..?
- The Zombie King
The Lego Zombie King is dead! His weak-mindedness and general lack of oomf has forced the Pumpkin King to take drastic action. No more will he stand idly by as his superiors pick snot and allow them humans to walk all over zombie kind. Now is the time for Zombie Pumpkin King!
It was 2 days until Z-Day when it was announced the clocks go back an hour at 2am on Sunday morning. For time waits for no zombie! Well…apparently it does since it’s going backwards.
Minions! Quick reminder – after the walk shuffle on down to Sloans on Argyle street for some after-walk shenanigans. Free entry gets you into a zombie film fest, a BBQ and some free and easy banter with the rest of the walking dead. Alas you’ll be buying yer own drinks…gnnaaaaar!
Here’s the route minions. Enjoy.

On the 5th day before Z-Day it was decreed that there should be rules.
Don’t bring any real props or alcohol please. And try not to shed too much skin and blood, we’ll have to clean it all up after. Pay attention to the stewards (yellow arm bands) – if they say you can’t go swimming in the Duck pond or eat that old lady then by golly gosh you can’t. As we said last year, just don’t act like a degenerate fool starting fights and trying to eat people who clearly aren’t up for it.
On the 6th day before Z-Day, it was declared that the stewards will be meeting in The Old Schoolhouse (formerly The Primary) at 1pm on the Sunday.
Anyone planning on stewarding will need to wear a yellow strip on their arm (duck-tape, big thick rope, inflatable armbands, whatever). All you need to do is make sure no-one acts the fool through vandalising or drunkenness. Common sense dictates!
