Fifty people are wanted to be zombies for a Halloween horror experience in aSwanseashopping centre.

Zombie Nightmare, a 60-minute zombie survival experience,will be at the city's Quadrant shopping centre across four dates later this month.

Now, Wicked Experiences, the company behind the survival experience, is looking to recruit 50 zombies, six make up artists and a handful of actors for other roles.

A spokesman for the company said: "As a zombie you will be tasked to scare our customers. You will be the face in their nightmares for years to come!

"No experience is needed to become a zombie as we will train you - There's no upper age limit on becoming a zombie and we take on people from any background."

The role is on a volunteer basis and is unpaid.

On its website, the company said it worked with local colleges and education institutions and a lot of its zombies used the experience as work placement hours.

Auditions will take place on Thursday, October 11 at the Dragon Hotel in Swansea.

Zombie Nightmare is set amid a zombie apocalypse, with shopping centres designated as safe zones where scientists and specialists have been working to eradicate the zombies once and for all.

However, the shopping centres have been overrun by the zombies and somewhere inside lies the cure for saving humankind and ending the Zombie Nightmare.

Participants will be tasked with finding the cure whilst navigating all areas of the shopping centre to avoid the zombies.

Events director at Wicked Experiences, Ash Gamon said: "This promises to be one of the most realistic and horrifying zombie events the UK has ever seen.

"We're currently touring the event and the response has been phenomenal."

The survival experience will be coming to the Quadrant shopping centre on Friday, October 26 , Saturday, October 27 , Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3 .

Each session will begin at 7pm after the shopping centre closes and last for approximately 60 minutes.
