Sociably crowdfunding local peoples ideas since 2015

Fancy doing something really good for Sheffield whilst having a great time, listening to live music and enjoying some delicious soup and bread made by Silversmiths, taking part in a pot luck feast, have a drink or two, make new friends and contacts?

As featured by the BBC in the Can Soup Change the World? documentary series, we are thrilled to announce the next Sheffield Soup is on Wednesday 28th February 2018! Register to attend before the 16th February and you will be invited to decide who makes it to live pitch night!

Come along and hear 4 pitches by Sheffield people who need your help to get an idea, project or business off the ground, or support an existing project or business to fund something they need.

In exchange for your minimum donation of £5, you get Soup, Free Raffle and a Vote - you vote for your favourite pitch, the winner is the pitch which received the most votes, and are given all the door money as an in kind grant. Reserve your guaranteed entry now.

We work hard to make a really supportive atmosphere for making new friends and connections, formulating ideas, plotting innovation, sharing, connecting, giving advice and guidance and positive encouragement. We've a strict no dragons policy - we are kind, helpful and willing to give people and ideas a chance.

Doors open at 6.30, and we take the podium at 7.00

Please do help us spread the word, with Sheffield folk all pulling together to do amazing things in a city that we love, we really can make a difference! If you fancy volunteering with us on the night, we can always do with an extra pair of hands on set up and pack down. Every aspect of Sheffield Soup is delivered by inividuals, independent business and service providers giving time, knowledge, goods and services for free, so that we can ensure ALL of the door donations go directly to the project.
