Event description
Welcome to the 7th edition of Downend SOUP - three great ideas, soup, bread, cake, music and your all important vote - change the world !

About this Event

Welcome to the 7th edition of Downend SOUP.

After the hectic SOUPerbowl and cheering on our 6th winners Viaduct Sanctuary we're back in November with three more great ideas for changing the community around us.

The formula remains the one that's made us one of the biggest SOUP event in the south west of England.

You come to our event, give a donation on the night for which you get delicious locally made soup, artesan sourdough bread, lovely cakes and entertainment from some of our talented local artists.

Oh - and the ideas - well we bring you three great ones, each deserving our attention and changing the world around us. You listen, ask some questions, vote for your favourite and the one with the most votes takes home all the door money.

Nothing gets deducted from the prize fund thanks to our volunteers and a range of local businesses who each give a little of something to ensure we can keep to our promise that everything that arrives on the night goes straight back out.

We encourage early reservations since we have sold out on previous occasions. There's no money up front - your donation will be gladly received on the door when you arrive. We suggest £5 for adults and we love it when children get to come and have a say in their futures too. So if you're under 18 or not earning right now come along anyway and donate what you're able.

As part of our efforts to reduce waste we encourage you to bring your favourite mug and spoon too - go on, you know that Paddington bowl deserves an airing !

Downend SOUP is an unpaid volunteer-led community outreach project of Christ Church Downend
