The town’s inaugural Zombie Crawl in 2011 was a supernatural success with more than 250 people dressing up to stumble around the streets, raising almost £1,000 for Kent Air Ambulance in the process, in 2012 over 1,000 people donned their disgusting Zombie outfits, raising nearly £3,000 for the same good cause. If you’d like to donate a few pounds this year, either make a donation at Just Giving or make sure you bring some loose change on the night!
The fun event appeals to all ages, with entire families joining in, making for a brilliant atmosphere and some wonderfully surreal photos and the Zombie Crawl will rise again this year, bigger and better, on Friday 1st November.
It’s FREE to enter, just dress up and turn up at the Neptune Car Park, Central Parade at 6.45pm, and get ready to join our freaky parade, starting around 7pm.
The fantastic drummers from Samba Pelo Mar will be donning their finest Zombie attire and leading our horde of Zombies around the Crawl, before performing on stage at the amazing Zombie Ball, from 8pm in the Kings Hall.
At the Zombie Ball, there will be the chance to win some great prizes for the Crawl’s best zombies, including goodies for the kids. The winning keeps on coming with the Zombie Raffle, helping to raise much needed funds for Kent Air Ambulance.
Tickets priced at just £5 for adults and £4 for children, gets you a night of music, prizes, sweets and treats for the kids, and of course, the bar will be open for a well deserved drink for the grown-ups! The cameras will be well and truly flashing away, and if some of the stunning make-up from last year is anything to go by, this year is going to be amazing!
Come and watch our Zombie Movie and win some great prizes!!
