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!

3/4 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.

If you'd like to put forward a proposal, fill in the application form via our website here:

Or email 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.
