Cupid’s Arrows Find Their Mark at Harpur Centre

Published on 08 February 2020

Love is in the air in Bedford and this Valentine’s Day shoppers are invited to celebrate love as the Harpur Centre hosts an event like no other filled with quirky balloon characters shaped like giant love hearts!

On Saturday 15th February Cupid will fire two of his arrows Into the Bedford Centre piercing the hearts of shoppers and the balloon characters to help spread the joy of love. The eye-popping act will be roaming the mall at various intervals throughout the day between 11am – 3pm, giving shoppers plenty of time to marvel at this brand-new style of wearable balloon character.

And if that wasn’t enough to help shoppers feel the love, the Centre will also have their own balloon themed photo opportunity, perfect for grabbing a quick selfie with bae. Just be careful not to pop anything - unless it’s the question!

Samantha Laycock, Centre Manager at Harpur Centre, commented: “We are incredibly excited to be celebrating love with our shoppers and what better way to round of Valentine’s Day than with two truly breath-taking balloon characters that have never been seen before! And can’t wait to see all the stunning photos our shoppers take at our photo opportunity, just make sure to tag us!”
