The event, organised by the Eastbourne unLtd Chamber Of Commerce, welcomes all manner of zombies from dead brides and ghouls to zombie nurses and lumberjacks to lurch in a zombie precession lead by Styx Drummers starting from the Crown and Anchor at 3pm and ending in the town centre.

Spectators will also be treated to a zombie flash mob at various locations en route, including outside TJ Hughes and at Bankers Corner, organised by Cheryl Cooper of Cherry Dance.

Town Centre management team Luke Johnson is expecting turnout to be as high as last year’s first event.

He said, “We are really looking forward to some spooky fun as the zombie horde lurches through our town centre streets.
