First Zombie Weekend

Could you survive a zombie apocalypse?

The rise in popularity of zombie movies and games have left many horror fans at one point or another wondering ‘what if…’ – what if a zombie apocalypse did happen? How would you survive? Would you be able to shoot your way out? Would there be a cure?

What if you had a chance to test your ‘what if’s’ in a safe, real-life ‘zombie apocalypse’?

Newgale Lodge and Man-Up UK have teamed up to give you the opportunity in November to test your survival skills against a herd of the walking dead.

Over the course of a weekend, go through tactical training as a survivor to find the cure to help your teammates and undergo a zombie transformation with the help of the on-site special effects makeup team.

If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, or films like 28 Days Later, World War Z, Dawn of the Dead or even Shaun of the Dead, you’re sure to love this zombie experience. There’ll be no going the Winchester, having a nice, cold pint and waiting for this all to blow over – as soon as you arrive, your reality will become what you’ve seen on the big screen.

On Friday afternoon, you will be welcomed into the safety of Newgale Lodge. Here, you will be briefed on what is in store over the course of the weekend so that you can plan a strategy for your survival against the undead. Following this, you will be treated to a zombie-themed feast to help keep your energy levels high for the undead onslaught that lies ahead.

On Saturday, after breakfast, your group will take part in specific tactical training on survival tactics, techniques and weapons available. The zombies of the group will then go through their undead transformation with the help of special effects makeup. Meanwhile, the survivors will have to scavenge for essentials. Following a well-earned lunch, the zombies and survivors will then go to war, navigating rural, low-rise buildings. Your group will then take part in a feast worthy of survivors.

On Sunday, after breakfast on the final day, zombies and survivors will swap roles, with zombies undergoing their undead transformation whilst survivors scavenge for supplies. After a well-earned lunch, survivors must then face the zombie onslaught in the woods and undergrowth whilst looking for clues for the cure.

The Zombie Weekend will take place between Friday, November 23rd and Sunday, November 25th. Booking is essential and there are limited spaces available. To book, or for more information, visit, email or call 01437 720959.
