Wally is on his way to Blists Hill – but can you find him?
Written by Harvey Williamson on October 8, 2020
The hunt will be on at Blists Hill Victorian Town this half term as the world’s favourite children’s book character goes into hiding at the historic site.
The Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search is coming to the town – with families being urged to join in the fun and see if they can spot him.
Blists Hill is part of the national search organised by Kids in Museums and Walker Books to celebrate the release of the new Where’s Wally? book, Spooky Spotlight Search.
Wally will be at the town from October 21 to Halloween itself, guaranteeing a fest of fun for visitors during the school holiday period.
Richard Aldred, from the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust, said the search for Wally would make the Halloween period extra special.
“We are delighted to have Wally at Blists Hill for the half-term break and particularly since it is the run up to Halloween.
“We’re setting all our visitors the challenge to find Wally somewhere in our collections, with a special spooky bookmark for everybody who is successful.”
The hunt is all part of the admission charge to Blists Hill, which has proved a huge hit with visitors since it reopened in July following the coronavirus lockdown.
