It’s that time again – the season of good fun. The Maidenhead Zombie Walk is back! Make sure you are there, unless you aren’t dead yet!
THE HORDES RETURN TO MAIDENHEAD WITH A TOWN HALL TAKEOVER!
Date: Saturday 29th October. Start Time: From 1pm Location: From The Bell PKB
The Maidenhead Zombie Walk, now in its 4th consecutive year, returns this Halloween for the spookiest and most hilarious event to date! Adding to the festivities this year we have the very first Monster Mash Halloween Ball! Taking place at a very special venue at the end of the walk; theDesborough Theatre in the Town Hall Maidenhead.
The Zombie Walk itself starts at The Bell pub at 5pm and remains completely FREE to take part in, with zombifying make up available from 1pm.
Tickets for the Monster Mash Ball afterwards are £2.50 for under 18s, and £5 for overs, with under 5s going free. The evening’s entertainment consists of live music, a dance flash mob, a bar, a pizza kitchen, plus the usual Halloween fare of decorations, a raffle and spooky fun and games galore!

The event is run entirely not-for-profit by community based volunteers from Maidenhead Live, the Maidenhead Round Table, and the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Bridge. This year we are all coming together to raise awareness and money for local charity organisation Number 22 Counselling Services.
Maidenhead Zombie Walk Timetable:
1pm – 5pm: The hordes gather at The Bell pub opposite the train station where they can get their zombie make up done for a few pounds, play some Halloween games, and learn how to walk and ‘talk’ like a zombie, courtesy of our very own zombie trainer from the movies, Chris von Ruhland
5pm – 6pm: The hordes will be alerted by zombie leader, Windsor and Maidenhead Town Crier Chris Brown, to gather opposite The Bell pub on the pedestrian area by the 3 building, where he will read out his horrifying annual speech, to announce the start of the walk. The zombies will then meander down King Street and turn into the Nicholsons Shopping Centre. They will then exit opposite Marks & Spencers and turn right onto the High Street before turning down St Ives Road and ending at the Town Hall.
6pm – 10:30pm: Fun, games and live music will be on order at the biggest Halloween Party Maidenhead has ever seen! Featuring a flash mob dance by Dance Inspired, local ukulele genius Mark Deans, busking and loop pedal legend THE busker rhymes, local rock n roll party band Bourbon Myths, Reading’s rebel rockers Fish Hook and fresh from their most recent Boomtown Festival appearance, the tremendous Popes of Chillitown will finish the night with a spooky spectacular of a show.
Tickets for the Monster Mash are available to buy NOW via the ticket link in this event page and wil alsol be on sale on the day at The Bell and the Town Hall.

10.30pm – late: For all those older zombies not ready to hang up their brain eating habits for another year just yet, there will be an after party at the Anchor pub on York road, featuring guest DJ sets from local community members with a generous donation of a percentage of the evening’s takings being donated to Number 22 Youth Counselling.
If you are interested becoming a sponsor for the event, or would like to donate a raffle prize, please contact chairman Vicky Lunt on:
The official venue for the zombie walk after party has changed to the RVS York Centre! This change in venue allows us more flexibility with logistics enabling us to set up for an even more spectacular party! The RVS York centre is situated at the end of St Ives road and is visible from the town hall. Due to the close relation to the town hall there will be no change to the walk route, we will end at the town hall and those who want to continue onto the after party can continue down the road and use the zebra crossings to reach the venue for the after party.
We will be contacting everyone who has already purchased tickets directly via email to let them know about the change of venue – TICKETS ALREADY PURCHASED ARE STILL VALID. Thanks for reading, the MZW committee.
