Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search – find Wally at the Roman Baths

This Halloween, children’s book character Wally – wearing a red-and-white striped shirt and black-rimmed specs – will be travelling the country, appearing in museums including the Roman Baths.

Families will be able to join the search for Wally at the Roman Baths 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 and October half-term. The activity will run in participating museums from 9 October to 1 November 2020 and will be tailored within each museum to comply with their physical distancing measures. Additional online activities will also be available.

Families will be able to visit their local participating museum to hunt for Wally amongst their collections, as well as spell out a spooky phrase with letters hidden alongside mini Wally standees, and receive a special “I found Wally!” bookmark. There will also be a 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.

Walker will provide participating museums with an array of supporting print and digital materials including mini standees, activity sheets, posters, bookmarks, pin badges for staff and social media assets.

Councillor Paul Crossley, cabinet member for Community Services at Bath & North East Somerset Council, said: “We’re pleased to be teaming up with Kids in Museums to offer this fun family activity at the Roman Baths. Local residents can visit the Roman Baths and take part in the Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search for free but advance booking is essential – visit the Roman Baths website to find out more and book a free ticket.”

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.”
