The Pink Party promises to be a fun evening for all guests, and includes a live DJ, entertainment, a ‘pink’ cake sale, and raffle with some amazing prizes.

Doors open from 6.30pm until 11pm and the recommended dress code is ‘something pink’.

Tickets are available online and on the door, and are only £3, plus a booking fee if purchased online, which includes a free glass of pink lemonade on arrival.

Taking place just after the awareness-raising World Cancer Day, the event aims to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer Now, a charity that contributes to worldwide vital research into breast cancer and is powered by offering life-changing support to those affected. The charity opened the UK’s first research centre dedicated entirely to breast cancer and continues research into how to prevent the disease.

Grace Pugh, Team Leader of Zim Events said: “We are extremely excited to be given the opportunity to raise awareness and money for Breast Cancer Now, a really special charity that impacts so many lives. We are honoured to represent the charity at our event.”

Anna Hadjivassiliou, Community Fundraising Executive for Breast Cancer Now added: “Thank you for supporting this event as this helps to raise awareness of breast cancer and the need to check regularly, as well as helping to support those living with breast cancer and their families.”

Every year around 55,000 women and 370 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK. Whilst recovery rates are increasing year-on-year, there is still work to do in educating women, and men, to check regularly.

Tickets for The Pink Party are available in advance via the website, https://uocpinkparty.wixsite.com/website, or on the door at the Bouverie Bar, Garden Lane, on the night.
