London, Aug 7 (ANI): Thousands of people gathered at the Big Chill festival near Ledbury, Herefordshire to set the world record for largest gathering of zombies.
A total of 4,026 pale and bloodied revellers assembled at the festival and beat the record for the largest zombie gathering set last month with 3,894 participants in Seattle.
"The fact that 4,026 people filled out a form was excellent but there were loads more there also taking part," the Telegraph quoted Katrina Larkin, the Big Chill festival director and co-founder as saying.
"It was not so much that people turned up as zombies but the effort that people went to by dressing up as zombie brides and nurses.
"It was such a laugh and just created the best atmosphere and start to the festival ever," she added.
The organisers believe that there were many more people present but did not fill in a form to be counted in the record attempt.
The people dressed as zombies were also taking part in filming for the forthcoming Film4 and Warp Films' production, I Spit On Your Rave.
The film, set nine years in the future with mankind extinct after a virus is released at the 2012 Olympics, stars comedian Noel Fielding as the zombie king. (ANI)
