Did Max Brooks’s day-to-day tips on how to stay ahead of the undead, ‘The Zombie Survival Guide‘, help you devise the perfect plan to surviving the impending apocalypse? Of course it did. And it’s time to say thank you to the man himself. Today (May 23), Brooks will be signing copies of his classic ‘World War Z’ at Forbidden Planet from 6pm. Can’t wait until then? Then head down to witness make-up artist extraordinaire, Tom Lauten, demonstrate his twisted talents at 1.30pm and then again at 3.30pm.
It’s a great time to get ready to face the zombies; on Monday (May 27), Angel will be invaded by animated corpses as the Zombie Rockin’ Bank Holiday All-Dayer spooks up The Lexington from noon until midnight. Don your vintage zombie make-up and hair at the tea room where brainy cupcakes and finger foods will be served, hunt down a piece of art or watch a blood chilling film before The Zipheads, The Creepfreaks and The Marksmen take to the stage and party into the dead of night.
