Guildford Youth 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.
Are you aged 18 or under? We want to know the issues that affect you, and the ideas you have that can help shape future youth projects.
Come along and find out more about the groups that will be pitching, what their projects and ideas are about, and to cast your vote and make a positive impact on issues affecting youth in the local community.
Guildford Town East Girl Guides
Guildford Town East Girlguiding is lucky enough to own its own meeting place but of course this comes with a lot of upkeep. We are constantly updating and repairing our wooden meeting hut on the Epsom Road to make it a nice environment for all users. Our hut moves into it’s 50th year next year, we are needing help with things like putting in water heaters, replacing fire doors, new oven, painting and decorating, gardening along with larger jobs too.
G:Live Creative Company
The Creative Company aims show young people within Guildford and the surrounding areas how much fun the arts and the theater can be.
It has always been our mission to bring projects and events to life that not only we would find interesting but also make it interesting for other young people as well, and show them an alternative to traditional entertainment.

Sour Kix are made up of Amelie (11),Louis (16), Ed (16) and Ollie (14) and have been playing together for nearly 2 years. The boys all met at ACM Junior. Amelie is Louis and Ollie's sister. They have had great opportunities playing at Worpfest, Rockfest, WWF Earth Hour, Wings and Wheels, Thames Bridges Bike Ride Finishers Fair and Ripley Bonfire to name but a few. They are regularly seen busking in Guildford and attending various open mic's in the area. They have to date helped raise over £6,000.00 for various charities. They mainly play covers of their favourite songs, intermixed with a few of their own. They are all passionate about their music and enjoy every minute of playing in front of crowds big or small.
*What is SOUP? *
Guildford Youth SOUP is a community-focused and led creative, grassroots crowd-funding project. Ever had an idea, project, or start-up that will benefit youth in the community? Have you struggled to get funding or get the project started? This is the place for you!
Donations at the door of SOUP go into a prize draw that one of the pitches wins at the end of SOUP.
3 applicants will be chosen to present to the audience, about their project, what the problem is that they are trying to solve, and how they would solve it with the prize money. Each presenter can also answer questions from the audience. Each audience member then casts a vote for their favourite project, whilst enjoying some live music and some SOUP and other refreshments. The votes are counted, and the pitch with the most votes wins the cash.
SOUP is a volunteer effort, so we do need volunteers to help out on the day, and people to help make the lovely SOUP. Feel free to bring family and friends, and anything you would like to eat or share in addition to the SOUP.
