There’s a Grinch-Inspired Christmas Market Coming to Manchester

The Grinch is a grumpy, people-hating loner but he’s still everyone’s favourite Christmas character because he’s just so bloody relatable.

Dr.Seuss’s holiday classic is a must-watch as we steadily approach the ‘big day’, I have some very good, Grinchy news for you.

The Lowry Outlet is hosting something spectacular this year- a Whoville-inspired Christmas market that will run for a month as of the Thursday 21st November.

Independent producers from across the North West will be securing their place outside of the Plaza, offering a range of artisan food, drinks and gifts that even the Grinch himself wouldn’t be able to resist.

From Grinch Macaroons, Who Puddings and Roast Who Beast’s, you’ll be able to sink your teeth into some delicious festive favourites if and when you want them.

Inside the shopping centre, there will be a Whoville Post Office and elves on standby to help children write their letters to Santa. There will also be lots of cute photo opportunities so make sure your kids have their best Cindy-Lou costumes at hand.

The Whoville Present Trail encourages children can take part in an exciting treasure hunt to find presents stolen by The Grinch, so if you want to be responsible for saving Christmas, this is the challenge for you.

But if whobilations aren’t really your thing, there will be a Mount Crumpit reading area available to bookworms between 10am – 4pm every weekend where families can share their favourite Christmas stories.
