AMAZE, a towering psychedelic maze full of magical moments free to

those who enter. Intrude by Amanda Parer is a family of giant, luminous
bunny rabbits, reminding us of the natural world, in an edgy, humorous
way in the MediaCityUK Piazza Gardens. Head across the water to the
Lowry Plaza for Cathedral of Mirrors and weave in and out of the
dazzling towers that light up in response to the movement of crowds.
