Guildford SOUP: Eighth Gathering @ The BOILEROOM, Guildford, United Kingdom

The Boileroom presents:

Guildford SOUP: Eighth Gathering

The BOILEROOM, Guildford, United Kingdom

Friday 23 June  6:00 PM   Room: Main Room
Donation   Entry Requirements: 18+

Based at The Boileroom music and arts venue, Guildford 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.

Doors are at 6pm, with the event starting at 6.30pm. 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 the local community.

HOW SOUP WORKS:
Guildford SOUP is a community-focused and led creative, grassroots crowd-funding project. 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!

There is a discretionary donation at the door of SOUP, which goes into a prize draw that one of the pitches wins at the end of SOUP.

3/4 applicants will be chosen to present to the audience for five minutes, 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.

If you'd like to put forward a proposal, fill in the application form via our website here:
http://www.theboileroom.net/surrey-soup/ Or email lydia@theboileroom.net to be sent a form (large formats available). 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.
