The Monster Mash returns to Stony Stratford

Zombie crawl: Participants say it's dead good!
Zombie crawl: Participants say it's dead good!

It’s the time of the year when more things go bump in the night than usual, and when the dead come back to life.


But if Michael Jackson’s Thriller video makes you nervous, you definitely won’t want to take the dog through Stony Stratford High Street for his evening walk on Saturday night...

The seventh annual blood and booze bash that is the Zombie Crawl is being held in the town from 7pm.

The undead will be taking over the pubs and streets of the town, and making good use of the liquid refreshments as they go.

‘Blood, gore, groaning, moaning, dressing up and beer’ will all get equal billing, and the zombie sorts will be visiting The Cock, The Vaults Bar, The Crown, The White Horse, The George, The Foresters and lastly, The Plough.

If you enjoy yourselves (and you know you ‘bloody’ well will), then raise a glass to organisers Christian Bowler and Andy Ward, and don’t forget to put a few quid in the charity box too – this year the crawl will be helping to swell the coffers for Harry’s Rainbow.
