We’re On The Hunt For Wallys
Where's Wally Record Attempt 2011 - photo by William Murphy
If you spot any lost Wallys wandering around Leeds then point them in the direction of Kirkstall Abbey, where there’ll be striped jumpers and bobble hats all round.

That’s where we’ll be attempting to set a world record for the largest gathering of Wallys in a single place, with 4,626 the number we need to beat.

To help us in our bid, would-be Wally’s need to wear a red and white-striped hat and t-shirt, blue jeans and specs in order to be counted. Costumes can be bought at Dress Up & Party on North Lane in Headingley, with a 10% discount available if you tell them its for this event.

The attempt will take place at 2pm as part of Wally’s Festival of Fun, a free event that promises a day of feel-good activities aimed at people of all ages while raising money for local mental health charities.

There’ll be laughing yoga, improvised comedy, children’s games and crafts, and even a Wally dog competition. There’ll be a range of food and drink options available, or people are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the beautiful surroundings of the Abbey.

The event is organised by Kirkstall Valley Development Trust, who are working alongside Kirkstall Abbey and Leeds City College to produce affordable events which increase visitor numbers to the Abbey, give local young people work and performance experience and bring the community together.

Wally's Festival of Fun at Kirkstall Abbey is on Sunday 10 June.
