Leeds business hopes to build world’s first zombie shed

Have your say

The world’s first zombie proof cabin could be built in Yorkshire, to offer “protection against an apocalypse”.

Leeds-based company Tiger Sheds are campaigning for donations to help make the Zombie Fortification Cabin (ZFC-1) a reality.

It will provide an ultimate zombie experience in which people can battle with the undead.

The shed will be kitted out with “zombie prevention equipment” including barbed wire surround, reinforced slit windows, walls and doors, a living area with TV, Xbox and sound system and a garden section to grow vegetables.

Tiger Sheds released design plans for ZFC-1 last year. But now it needs the public’s help to bring the £120,000 project to life.

Jack Sutcliffe of Tiger Sheds said: “Everyone thinks they have what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse, so we did our best to design a fortress to keep the ‘walkers’ out.

“We were thrilled with the response to it last year and we hope people get on board to make it happen. After all, we might need it one day.”

The cabin will be built in partnership with zombie survival experience organisation Zombie Infection.

It will be based at the abandoned Stanley Tools factory in Sheffield or within Nottingham’s Sherwood Forest.

Chris Baker from Zombie Infection said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Tiger Sheds for this project. We want to offer our customers as realistic experience as possible and the Zombie Fortification Cabin would offer a great addition to our immersive experiences.”

Rewards will be available for those who donate including merchandise, cabin visits and an invitation to the launch event.
