9. How long is the event?

  • You may be here for roughly 4 hours, including entrance to the event, and exit from it. This is a fully immersive event.


10. Will zombies touch me in this event?

  • Of course! It’s the apocalypse! They will be grabbing at you, trying to draw you close enough for teeth to break skin! Best advice is to just keep running!


11. That zombie touched me, can I touch them/push them back?

  • We understand reactions can happen, and you'll want to escape the zombie that is grabbing at you, but we ask you to remember they are actors, and they feel pain! Please do not hit, punch, kick, body-slam, trample or full out attack our actors! Pushing hands away, pushing past a zombie, and keeping them at arms' length is fine, but PLEASE do not do anything that could hurt our actors. Anyone caught doing so purposefully will be removed from the event, and have potential charges brought against them in serious cases.


12. Can I leave part-way through?

  • Yes, and there is a protocol just for this; the SAFE WORD. If for whatever reason you need to leave, whether that be the event is too horrific for you, or you need to get out for emergency reasons, you can say the safe word 'OXO', and the actors will come out of character, find out what you need and either get you escorted safely out, or calm you down to a point where you can be escorted out. The Officers manning the gate will sign you out, and release you from the prison.


13. I said the Safe Word, why am I being escorted out?

  • The Safe Word is for emergencies only. Anyone using it in jest will be escorted from the premises whether they meant it or not. There is no returning to the event after saying the Safe Word.


14. Can I smoke during the event?

  • You think you'll have time? There is one designated smoking area within C-Wing exercise yard. Anyone caught smoking in other areas of the prison may face being removed from the event. Please don't do it!!


15. Will I be separated from my friends?

  • There is a chance that the zombie hoard may take you into their grasp and you may be separated from your loved ones but not for long. Our Officers are trained for this, and will retrieve you soon enough and return you to the group! Try not to get separated though! Who knows what will happen to you.

  • There is also the chance that you will be separated from friends and loved ones in the allocation of your team for the event; there will be around 4 teams on the day. We will try as much as we can to keep groups together, but we will not be able to guarantee this. If you do not think you will cope in the event away from your friends, make us aware, and we will honestly try our best!


16. Are there toilets on site I can use?

  • There are toilets that can be used at the beginning of the event, located in the Gatehouse as you walk in then in various areas of the prison (though we have many toilets here on site most of them do not work!).

17. Can I bring food and drink?

  • No you cannot, this is a secure compound and for the safety of all survivors there are strict rules regarding entering to prevent the virus from being brought inside. There will be food and drinks available to purchase, including a licensed bar.

18. Will I be searched?

  • On entrance, you may be asked to show the contents of any bags or pockets to check you are not carrying anything that could harm our actors. Any items deemed as potentially harmful will be taken then returned to you as you leave.


19. Can I keep my mobile with me?

  • You can, please share your pictures on social media and tag @Immersive Events #Sanctum. However, be aware our zombies WILL touch you, and your phone could be damaged in the chaos of the apocalypse!


20. Can I wear fancy dress?

  • Yes you can wear fancy dress, and in fact we encourage you to do so!


21. I'm in a wheelchair/mobility limited/pregnant. Can I still take part?

  • We would suggest not. Our site is not DDA Compliant, due to its very nature, and the event itself is high paced and hazardous. With potentially three hundred people wandering the site at any given time, as well as a lot of stairs! We do not want any accidents to happen, so if you are at all concerned about your physical health, then do not attend this event.


22. Will I be locked in a cell at any point?

  • There is always that possibility! Best stay on the good side of General P. Hock!
