Lowry Outlet is preparing for a month of whobilations, as the Whoville Christmas Markets come to town.

Shoppers can be transported into a world inspired by Dr Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical, while the show is on at The Lowry Theatre from December 10, as The Makers Markets get a makeover suitable for Augustus Maywho.

Producers from across the north west will take up residence outside on the plaza where they’ll be a range artisan food, drinks and gifts available to buy – from Who Puddings including Grinch Macaroons to Roast Who Beast.

A Whoville Post Office will also be open for little Cindy-Lou Whos to drop off their letters before youngsters can take on the Whoville Present Trail.

The naughty Grinch has stolen 16 presents and hidden them around the mall.
