If you like a challenge, get along to Market Rasen Library to take part in the 30 years of Where’s Wally Anniversary Celebrations.

From now until April 22, the library is running a competition for five to 11-year-olds to find out where Wally has visited on his recent travels to London.

There is also a Where’s Wally trail for under fours to see how many Wally’s they can find around the library.

Karen Waring, Market Rasen Library manager, for GLL, said: “We couldn’t let the anniversary pass without celebrating the international character that dresses in the distinctive red-and-white-striped shirt, bobble hat, and glasses.

“The winner of the competition will receive a wonderful anniversary edition of the book that kick-started a global phenomenon 30 years ago and got the whole world asking Where’s Wally?”

The library is also holding a Where’s Wally Easter Eggstravaganza in homage to the character on next Wednesday, April 5.

Make Wally style eggs and chocolate Wally treats.

Take a selfie in the Where’s Wally Photo Booth or try your hand at the Where’s Wally brain teasers.

The event runs from 2pm to 3.15pm and places are strictly limited.

Tickets cost £1 per child.

To book, drop in at the library and speak to a member of staff, call them on 01522 782010, or email market_rasen.Library@gll.org .
