Event description

Description

Plymouth Soup (the event previously known as Devonport Soup!) is the city’s micro granting dinner. It's about bringing people together, having fun and supporting projects that benefit Plymouth and its communities.

This is our fourth SOUP and will be sponsored by Plymouth City Council and the Real Ideas Organisation, with funding from the Big Lottery Fund through the Power to Change Places Programme.

How SOUP works:
If you want to be in the audience on the night you will be asked for a £5 donation on the door. This gets you soup, Column Bakehouse bread and a vote!

At the SOUP dinner on 27 September we'll be inviting four individuals or groups to pitch their project idea to the audience. Each pitch can last for up to four minutes. Audience members can then ask each presenter up to four questions after their presentation.

After the presentations, audience members are encouraged to discuss and debate what they've heard. They then vote for the project which they think benefits Devonport and Stonehouse the most. The project with the highest number of votes will receive a small grant of £450, plus half the takings of the door.

SOUP is a great way to raise money, build community support and get connections to local resources that can help you carry out your project.

To submit your project idea to SOUP just fill in the simple form below.
We don't need a massive amount of information - just a summary of your project, what it's going to cost and what the outcomes are likely to be.

Four submissions will be invited to present at the SOUP event. If you are selected to pitch please note that no electronic presentation equipment is allowed!

Once the votes are counted the two winning projects will receive their grants from the Power to Change Places Programme.

Applications must be submitted by midnight on Wednesday 20th September and we will let you know by Friday 22nd September if you have been selected to present on the night.
