Cupid to the rescue! Norwich’s famous market is full of wonders, from jewels to food, clothes to crafts. People shop for these pieces, but they find only one half of the pair- the objects need help, they have lost their perfect partner, and only mighty Cupid can use his superpowers to bring them together. Salt finds pepper, sun finds moon, bee finds flower, bat finds ball, knife finds fork – so many individuals pair up perfectly, and Cupid is on a mission to help them connect.
He soars over the stalls, a modern day boy wonder - arrows flying and energy connecting up the myriad of objects in a shimmer of joy. Then like their object counterparts, people meet people, connections are made across the city, and love is found where cupid’s bow forms magnetic connections. Will everybody find their perfect match?
