Zombies to descend on gallery

SCARY surgeons and zombie patients have been invited to a fancy dress event at the Hepworth Wakefield tomorrow.

Terrifying zombies will limp, stagger and moan through the gallery grounds to celebrate Hallowe’en from 11am until 4pm.

They will be led by the Yew Tree Youth Theatre members for a tour of the gallery.

The event, called Medical Nightmares, has been inspired by Barbara Hepworth’s Hospital Drawings exhibition which opened last weekend.

Throughout the day there will be competitions, the opportunity for photographs and the offer of zombie makeovers for a price of £2.

There will be family workshops with activities including mask-making and dancing inspired by Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

The gallery’s zombie walk also took place last year. For more information about the free event, visit www.hepworthwakefield.org/zombies or call 01924 247360.
