The fun, free costumed event took place in the run-up to Halloween and ran from 11am.

Organised by local man Kevin Burchitt, with the support of Lord Brett Mclean, it was a colouurful replacement for the annual 1066 Walk of the Dead, which is not taking place this year.

The event featured a Best Dressed Zombie competition (won by Roxanne) and performances by the Tornado Twirl-Stars and Gizmo Kids, with Hastings Hexenbrut dressing up in style to perform the Witches Dance, complete with broomsticks.
