This Halloween, Wally, the world’s favourite children’s book character – wearing a red-and-white striped shirt and black-rimmed specs – will be travelling the country appearing in museums, including Amberley Museum near Arundel, West Sussex. Families will be able to join the search for Wally at Amberley Museum as part of the Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search, organised by Walker Books and Kids in Museums, to celebrate the release of the new book, Where’s Wally? Spooky Spotlight Search.
Over 75 museums around the UK have signed up to run the promotion, which is perfectly timed for Halloween. The Where’s Wally Search will take place at Amberley Museum during the October half term on the weekend of 24th-25th October and Wednesday 28th October- Sunday 1st November.
Families will be able to hunt for Wally among the exhibitions and displays at Amberley, as well as spell out a spooky phrase with letters hidden alongside mini Wally standees, and receive a special “I found Wally!” bookmark on completion of the search, as well as the chance to enter the Where’s Wally? and Kids in Museums grand prize draw competition to win an ArtFund Family Membership and a bundle of Where’s Wally? goodies.
Alison Bowyer, Executive Director of Kids in Museums, said:
“We’re thrilled to be working with Walker Books again this year. The last few months have been a challenging time for the heritage sector so we are pleased to support even more museums to hold a fun and safe activity this October. We hope to encourage families back into heritage sites and help them enjoy all the rich experiences on offer.”
