A Bristolian Halloween

You’re getting a bit old for trick or treating now, but Halloween doesn’t have to be exclusive to the under-12s. As always Bristol has a plethora of spooktacular (ahem) themed events on offer – read on for a selection of the very best

1. The Zombie Walk
Saturday 29th October/free

Now in its fifth year, the Zombie Walk returns to Bristol with a new, as-yet-undisclosed route. Dig out your grey face paint, fake blood and torn clothes, and join the hundreds of other zombies shuffling through Bristol moaning for “braaains”. If ‘living dead’ isn’t really your style, you can still join in: don combats and a plastic gun and you can join the Zombie Defence Squad, to take down the zombies and save the city! More information on the Zombie Walk here; join the Zombie Defence Squad here.

2.Halloween Champion Sound @ Warehouse
Saturday 29th October/£6-8 (£5 for zombies)

Not deterred by the temporary closure of Lakota, Champion Sound is back with a new venue. The Halloween edition is billed as the Zombie Walk’s unofficial afterparty, and will take place at the Warehouse (near the Thekla), open to both zombies and non-zombies with a taste for drum and bass, dubstep and hip hop.
