Click the link above to see my favourite photos from the second 1066 Walk of the Dead Zombie Walk, held in Hastings, East Sussex on Saturday the 26th of October 2013. The Zombies appeared at Hastings Pier before we all staggered into the town centre, had a great performance of Michael Jackson’s Thriller by Theatre Sense at Priory Meadow shopping centre, then back through the town and onto Hastings seafront, attacking a bed shop before heading into Hastings Old Town and limping our way down George Street. Finally we went back onto the seafront to the Stade open space next to the Jerwood art gallery and Eat@ cafe where Theatre Sense did the Thriller dance again to end the main event. This was the second year of having a Hastings Zombie walk and it was great fun to be part of it, now we are looking forward to 2014 and having an even bigger and better third event. A big thank you to Scott Bartholomew for creating such a great free event for Hastings and the many people of the 1066 area who took park and finally the poor unsuspecting people of Hastings who survived the Zombie apocalypse!!!
Hastings Old Town Carnival 2013, a set on Flickr.I have watched Hastings Old Town Carnival many times in the past, but this this year ( 2013 )I actually got to be on a float, well I say float, this was more of a very heavily armoured vehicle! A really great experience!!! 8o)
Brighton Pride 2013, a set on Flickr.Brighton Gay Pride 2013, ten years on from my first time at Pride and over the years a lot has changed, some for the better, but a lot for the worse 8o( Brighton Pride (they have dropped the Gay!) used to be a great free event to promote LGBT equality, with stalls offering support and information about local LGBT services and charities. Floats in the parade were mostly gay clubs, support groups and a few businesses. These days it costs £17.50 to get into the park, to get totally ripped off on food and drink, so a lot of people stay outside, getting pissed and drugged up out of their brains, watching a parade of mostly big businesses that only seem to be there to look good and grab a bit of the pink pound. Its gradually becoming just another expensive music festival and losing everything to do with Gay or Pride!!! 8o(

It was already very dark when we got to the Mellieha Bay Hotel, but we still headed strait out onto our balcony to check out the views of Malta:
On our first morning I woke up early and headed out of the Mellieha Bay Hotel to greet the morning sunrise in Malta for the first time. That day we all went out around the bay to have a look around and even ventured into the sea for a short swim, it was a bit cold (it was January!), but I have felt worse!
Another early start for me as I wanted to make the most of our last full day, but the whole day was spent around the Mellieha Bay area, including a trip up to the Red Tower.
Our last half day 8o( We went on the bus to Sliema for a final bit of exploring, before heading back to the Mellieha Bay hotel to relax for a while before our flight home.
Rocky Horror Show 40th Anniversary 2012 opening night trip to Brighton!, a set on Flickr.
Rocky Horror Show 40th Anniversary 2012 opening night trip to Brighton! Photos of family, friends and strangers! I had seen the film at the cinema with lots of people dressed up and seen the dvd hundreds of times, but was my first seeing it live. At the end they did the timewarp, then an extra bit sweet transvestite, then back to timewarp again and just as we thought it was over Richard O’Brian walked out onto the stage, did a very short talk then he actually sung timewarp!!! When we were coming down the stairs he was coming up them, so I couldn’t resist stopping him, saying how great it was, asked to shake his hand, he commented on my costume, I said thanks, we said bye and that was it, but was so great to actually meet him, sadly the stairs were packed and my camera was stored away in my backpack, so no photo of him 8o(
