TERRIFYING zombies are to return to Blackburn this year as the Zombie Nightmare experience comes to town.

The event will take place in The Mall and will involve an hour-long post-apocalyptic fight for survival.

Trapped in the shopping centre after hours, teams are required to explore The Mall and end the zombie apocalypse.

The event has been crowned as the UK’s best zombie experience at the ScareCon awards this year.

Events director Ash Gamon from Wicked Experiences, who produce the event, said: "We loved putting the event on at The Mall last year and it had a great response from our zombie loving guests.

"We have made the event even bigger with more zombies, more scares and a brand-new mission."

The events take place throughout the evening on Friday, October 18 and Saturday 19.

Tickets are priced at £45 per person, plus booking fee.

Tickets can be bought by visiting www.ZombieNightmare.co.uk.
