Arndale centre

Continuing my “Things you might see in Luton” series.. this is the Arndale Centre, George st entrance. It opened in 1972. You won’t see it in Luton any more, because this entrance was knocked down in 2012. I wanted to record it though for its sheer brutalist concrete magnificence, and also for the many pints of cider drunk on those steps.

Zombie Shopper

Continuing the theme “people you might see in Luton” is this delightful zombie shopper. You almost certainly will see more than one Zombie Shopper in Luton Mall, formerly known and still fondly referred to as the “Arndale Centre”. For some reason, you’re more likely to encounter a Zombie Shopper when you’re in a rush. You can see the bruises where people have been ramming them with their trolleys to get past.
