This half-term, 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 a visit to Cirencester's Corinium Museum.

Families will be able to join the search for Wally at the Friar Street venue as part of Where’s Wally? The Big Museum Hunt, organised by Walker Books and Kids in Museums, to celebrate the release of the new book, Where’s Wally? Double Trouble at the Museum.

The event will run from Saturday, October 12, to November 3.

The Corinium Museum will have a search-and-find trail, giving families the chance to receive an ‘I Found Wally!’ sticker at the end and to enter the Where’s Wally? and Kids in Museums grand prize draw competition.

Cllr Jenny Forde, cabinet member for health, wellbeing and public safety said: “Our Corinium Museum is always a wonderful place to take the kids at half-term and this is a fab way for kids to enjoy the museum searching for Wally!

"Accompanying adults might also enjoy getting a preview of the £1.7million refurbishment project that's underway."
