Otley set for a zombie invasion
8:00am Monday 26th August 2013 in News
The walking dead will invade Otley for a fiendishly frightening fundraiser.
A series of zombie games, involving teams of terrified human survivors fleeing from hordes of the ‘undead’ (above), will take place on the town’s streets on Friday and Saturday.
Horror fan and local mum-of-three Mel Metcalfe and co-organiser Tom Featherstone have chosen a variety of dramatic locations for Otley’s Zombie Apocalypse Run, but are keeping them under-wraps to increase the suspense.
Proceeds from the ghoulish fun will boost Mel’s efforts to revamp the run-down playground at Newall Park, for a total cost of about £148,000.
Tickets cost £15 from Fusion GameXchange, on Market Street, Otley Health and Martial Arts Centre, on Orchard Gate, or by calling 07443 869457.
