‘Blood-soaked’ zombies roam streets of Dundee

Dundee turned into a scene from the Walking Dead on Saturday when dozens of ‘blood-soaked zombies’ roamed the city streets.

The Dundee Zombie Walk, now in its seventh year, sees horror-daft Dundonians get kitted out in ragged clothes and make-up before traipsing through the city centre.

Zombies walk through Meadowside on Saturday

The event is organised by James Thomson, a former Dundee University student who now lives in Kent, and raises funds for a different local charity every year.

The apocalypse-enthusiast proposed to wife Susie at the third walk in 2014 and even staged a zombie-themed wedding.

The seventh annual Zombie Walk.

This year’s walk began at Dundee University’s student union before heading toward the Wellgate Centre. An after-event was held at the Tinsmith pub, near the university.

Members were given the full works by make-up artists for a nominal fee.

Walkers mostly elected for a style reminiscent of the classic “slow” zombies found in the films of George A Romero.

However, some participants chose to amble in other un-dead guises such as those from TV show the Walking Dead.

James still makes the 1,000 mile round trip from Kent every year to keep the event going.

In 2014, the walk, which is not affiliated with the university itself, raised around £700 for the British Lung Foundation. Another £312 went to Tayside Children with Cancer and Leukaemia (TCCL) in 2015.

Two years ago, £300 was donated to Meningitis Now and last year £550 went towards Prostate Cancer UK.

This year, funds will go to Dundee Foodbank.
