Guildford SOUP

Based at The Boileroom music and arts venue in Guildford, Surrey Soup is a volunteer effort and exercise in community, food, creativity and good times. We are creating new opportunities and lasting cultural exchange with our locality.

what is SOUP?

SOUP is a community-focused and led creative, grassroots crowd-funding project resource page. Ever had an idea, project, or start-up that will benefit the community? Have you struggled to get funding or get the project started? This is the place for you!

How does SOUP work?

3-5 applicants will be chosen to present to the audience for five minutes - who they are, a picture of the problem, and a picture of the solution. Each presenter can also answer 4 questions from the audience. 

Each audience member then casts a vote for their favourite project. The one with the most votes wins the cash donated on the door. And of course everyone gets a bowl of soup and bread - Everyone's a winner! Check out this infographic from SOUP founders that explains how it works.
