Zombies will go walkies in Huddersfield town centre this Halloween.

The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield and Bradford branch is inviting supporters to join them for their second annual Zombie Walkies.

Zombie Walkies is an interactive trick or treat walk around Huddersfield town centre, with spooky stops and live acts along the way. Families, friends – and dogs – are all welcome to take part in the walk on Sunday October 30. The event finishes at the Lawrence Batley Theatre with a fangtastic party.  

The event, sponsored by Huddersfield BID, starts at 2pm setting off from Market Avenue Shopping Arcade (just off New Street) and takes in various stops around the town centre.

The walk is free to take part in, but participants are encouraged to raise sponsorship for the local RSPCA Animal Centre.  All Zombie Walkies walkers will receive a free goody bag and free human and dog treats along the route. 

But the fun doesn’t stop there, the Lawrence Batley Theatre has kindly offered their courtyard as a party space for all those looking for some Halloween fun! Whether you take part in the Zombie Walkies or not, the party is open to all from 2pm and includes games, music, stalls and karaoke. 

All funds raised go towards the important animal rehabilitation, care and rehoming work of the local, independently-funded RSPCA centre.

Lauren Moore, fundraising manager, said: “Zombie Walkies is a really fun way to celebrate Halloween and we’re excited to see the spooktastic walkers take part in this year’s event.

“We’d like to thank all the local businesses who are offering their premises as a ghoulicious pit stop and we hope the community will support them as they are supporting us by having a bite to eat or drink before the event starts. 

“We’ve added an extra twist this year with a party at the Lawrence Batley Theatre where we’ll also be giving out prizes for the best dressed on the day, so let’s see how creative our community can be.’’
