Be transported into a world inspired by Dr Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas as The Makers Markets undergo a makeover suitable for Augustos 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.

Feeling a bit of a Grinch? The fun doesn’t stop at the markets, there are plenty of activities inside the mall to send shoppers away feeling like a holiday cheermeister.

Sending a letter to Santa? The Whoville Post Office is the perfect place for little Cindy-Lou Whos to drop off their letters. Elves will help them decide what they want to ask Father Christmas for and they’ll post their letter onto the North Pole.  They’ll also be plenty of opportunities to get a great picture too.

The Whoville Present Trail is the ultimate activity to do whilst shopping the Mall. The naughty Grinch has stolen 16 presents and hidden them around the Mall – Who can help to find them all before Christmas day? Collect a map and search high and low to find the Whoville residents’ Christmas gifts.

Bookworms can will be able to immerse themselves in a world of fiction in the Mount Crumpit reading area, open daily between 10am – 4pm they’ll be a host of great books available for little Who’s who love to read.

The Whoville Christmas Markets will start on November 21 and will run every weekend until December 22, operating from 10am – 7pm on Saturdays and 11am – 5pm on Sundays. On TNovember 21 and 22 the markets will be open from 10am – 7pm.
