ZOMBIES and Militia will be tearing around the town next Tuesday as part of a new event for Evesham.

Zomtag is a charity event which sees two groups of people dressed as either Zombies or Militia hunt each other down.

Donna Woodhouse, who is organising the event on Tuesday, February 18, said: "This is a trial micro event as we want just to try it out, with the hopes of doing a larger one on a larger scale in the summer school holidays.

"We hope to turn a few heads on the day, providing the weather is on our side.

The players pay £3 each to play the event and the money will go to cancer research, a cause close to the hearts of many group members.
