Mr Stink colouring-in comp: win tickets to the show!

It’s time to celebrate!

Thanks to our friends at Geelong Arts Centre (just across the road from Geelong Library & Heritage Centre), we have two family passes to give away to the stage show of Mr. Stink.

David Walliams’ award-winning book comes to life on stage for children 6+... and their adults!

”Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well...”

To enter, pop into Geelong Library & Heritage Centre or Corio Library and grab a colouring-in sheet from the desk, colour in and pop in the box. 

Competition runs from Wednesday 15 March until 5pm Thursday 23 March. Winners will be contacted on Friday 24 March by phone or email.
