Feeling a bit apathetic or sluggish this chilly October? Why not attend Beach of the Dead on Saturday October 22 for Brighton’s annual Zombie Parade?
Attendees are expected to dress for the occasion, with gory make up effects, and ripped clothing suitable for the undead.

The two hour march will start at Victoria Gardens, Grand Palace (a mere 11 minute walk from the train station) at 3pm and lasts approximately two hours.
After gormlessly pulling yourself along Brighton beach with fellow zombies, the parade will then end at Concorde 2, Madeira Drive, for the after party.
Hundreds are expected to attend Brighton’s fifth Beach of the Dead event, which is organised and funded by Katie Amer.
Katie says: “Beach of the Dead is Brighton at its gruesome, gore–gous best.”
Beach of the Dead has increased in popularity since its first year back in 2007, and this year sites such as Facebook and Twitter – it boasts 1,200 followers- have helped gain it attention.
The zombie parade is non profit, free and all ages are welcome to join in – hopefully wearing the most original and grossest outfit they can come up with.
The official after party is being held at Concorde 2 and costs £4 on the door (£3 if you book in advance), and you must be at least 14 to attend.
Once there the mutilated guests will be entertained by acts such as the Flying White Dots, Teen Creeps, Breaking Bear and Sick Stay.
Oh, and in case you were wondering what the undead act like it appears the official description is: someone who appears to be lifeless, automatic or totally lacking in independent judgement.
