Bristol Zombie Walk - 29th October
This event is not for the faint hearted - the Saturday before Halloween, the zombie apocalypse we’ve all been dreading will finally take over Bristol city centre. Hundreds of excited volunteers will be throwing on their scariest zombie costumes, waiting for the perfect moment to scare. You can go along and watch, join in or wait for the after-party at The Fleece and enjoy live bands and DJs.
