The living dead will descend upon the streets of Maidenhead next month for the annual zombie walk.
The not-for-profit event, run by volunteers from Maidenhead Live, the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Bridge and Maidenhead Round Table, will see participants raise awareness for the Number 22 charity.
Vicky Lunt, chairman of the zombie walk committee, said: “We’re really excited to be working with our friends at Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club and Maidenhead Round Table.
“They have a huge impact on helping us make sure everyone is safe and has a great time.
“This year we have chosen Number 22 youth counselling as our charity, due to the incredibly important services they offer in Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.”
The ‘zombifying’ will begin from 1pm and the walk itself will start at 5pm at The Bell pub in King Street on Saturday, October 29.
The Monster Mash ball will take place in the Desborough Suite from 6pm and an after party will take place at The Anchor in York Road.
