Ghosts and ghouls are invited to a silent disco and beach clean on Brighton seafront.

The ‘Hallowclean’ event on Sunday, October 28 encourages people to dress up for Halloween and rid the beach of rubbish, while dancing to spooky classics like ‘Thriller’ and ‘Monster Mash’.

A spokesperson for the event said: “This event is open to all ages, and there will be something for kids and adults alike. It’s a great opportunity to entertain the kids while teaching them about reducing plastic in the seas for the future generation.

“Costumes are indeed encouraged and you can expect prizes as usual. Please just try and upcycle/re-use/buy second hand as much as possible when putting your costume together - the less we buy new, the less rubbish we create later.

“Scary facts – each year eight million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean. Each year these plastics kill one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals.

“You can make a difference as an individual and together as a movement.”
