High Street Casualties: Ellie Harrison's Zombie Walk

Hello friends,

Will you be near Birmingham City Centre this Saturday 11 April? We're looking for people to get involved in my exciting new project: High Street Casualties: Ellie Harrison's Zombie Walk.

The plan is to recruit one hundred willing participants to help dress up as the 'zombie' employees of sixteen of the major high street chains that have gone bust since the start of the global financial crisis in 2008: Woolworths, MFI, Borders, JJB Sports, Blockbuster and Phones 4U, to name but a few... Together we will re-visit the former sites of these now defunct businesses; bringing to life the 'creative destructive' forces of capitalism on Birmingham's busy shopping streets.

Sounds like fun, no? And, what's more, you'll get a FREE LUNCH if you take part!
Please see below for details of how to get involved.

I hope to see you there!

Best wishes,

Ellie Harrison
