Many thanks to everyone who came out for the second annual Zombieville festival.

It’s not just local zombies who enjoyed the annual three-day Weekend Of The Weird, as this year for the first time we had new zombies travelling to Morecambe from places such as Huddersfield, Barrow and Blackpool for the weekend.

They have also threatened, sorry promised, to return to the resort in even greater numbers next year.

Thanks must also go to all the venues – The Arndale, Regent Park Studios, Smokey O’Connors and The Winter Gardens for hosting the weekend. Also to the Go Morecambe team for providing the stewards for the Crawl.

The young dancers from Strawberry Dance Factory and the zombie Shrimpettes also deserve great credit for their routines to Thriller and The Time Warp as do the excellent bands including Georgia Winrow and Soul Purpose, Massive Wagons, Pink Hearse, Louisa B, Fay Marie and Cyferdyne.

Finally, well done to our hard-working team for all their efforts in ensuring the weekend went off without a hitch and helping to raise funds for CancerCare as well.

The good news is that nobody even actually got bitten by a zombie this time – but of course there is always next year to get your teeth into.
