Breast Cancer pop-up exhibition

Patient advocacy group, METUPUK, is hosting a pop-up exhibition at the venue to highlight care issues around secondary breast cancer.

The exhibition, titled ‘The Darker Side of Pink’, aims to highlight the seriousness of Metastatic breast cancer – the biggest cancer killer of UK women under 50 – via a powerful display that counteracts other, fluffier, baby pink-branded campaigns.

Hosted in the Corn Exchange’s atrium throughout November, The Darker Side of Pink features 31 transparent figures, to depict the invisibility of the disease.

Liam Mooney, General Manager at the Corn Exchange, said, “We’re very excited to celebrate the Christmas period at the Corn Exchange following the difficulties of 2020.  

This year we have a variety of entertainment at the dining hotspot to make the festive period even more magical. It truly is going to be a great Christmas and we’re certain this year will be our best one yet.”

So, what are you waiting for? Head down to Corn Exchange Manchester for a magical Christmas this year.
