York Theatre Royal is hosting the next York Soup, re branded York Soup at the Theatre.
The York SOUP project is a micro granting dinner celebrating and supporting community based projects in York. The process is a simple one – turn up, listen, eat and vote. Attendees pay £10 for a ticket and receive soup, bread, and most importantly, a vote.
Each SOUP event hears from four presentations which can be delivered from individuals or organisations with subjects ranging from education, urban agriculture, social justice and much more to come.
Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and then answer questions from the audience.
During the event, attendees have the opportunity eat, talk to people in their community, share resources, hear about local projects, enjoy the creative atmosphere that and vote on the project they think benefits the York the most.
At the end of the night, the votes are counted up and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project. Winners come back to a future SOUP dinner to report their project’s progress.
This time the York Soup will be hosted by York Theatre Royal and will take place in the beautiful surroundings of the De Grey Ballroom. This particular York Soup will have a community arts theme with all groups pitching to raise funds for an innovative new community arts project that will benefit the people of York.
There will be pitches from:
SLAP, Chilli Bon Bon, Embrace Art with YNC and Two Rivers Radio.
Throughout the evening there will be live music from young musicians Effy Fenwick, Mason Chetnik, Amber Warren from Access to Music.
If you interested in attending the event, tickets cost £10 and can be accessed via Eventbrite:
