The Walking Dead a long running zombie series is returning to Fox 11th February for it’s second half of it’s ninth season.  As to get fans excited agency Premier Comms bought to London’s Old Truman Brewery (8th / 9th February) a zombie lovers interactive pop up called ‘FOX’s The Walking Dead: Art Apocalypse’.

As I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead and anything to do with zombie’s I just had to pop on down to get a selfie or two with walkers and learn further about what happens behind the scenes to my favourite zombie series.

Guests will be able to view and interact with walkers (zombies), pose within recreated set scenes and play with an assortment of replica props.  There was also plenty of artwork and photos on display, which I must warn is not for the faint hearted.

Get Arty – PopUp Painting

I am a big kid at heart and just love anything fun and quirky.  So, when I heard about PopUp Painting I was excited about the prospect of trying to paint a proper piece of art with a paintbrush in one hand and a glass of prosecco in another.

To be honest though I have not painted properly for a long time as the only painting I seem to do now days is with my niece who is six and let’s just say my art is more on the lines of stick men and unicorns. 

So, when I was invited down on a complimentary basis along with another member of Love Pop Ups London (Chelsea) to have some fun in painting I was certainly not going to let this opportunity brush on by.

PopUp Painting

PopUp Painting popped up back in 2013 with their take on social painting classes.  Social painting classes have been popular over the world for a number of years but there was not any in the UK at the time.
