Cast your vote to help a Huddersfield Project

Cast your vote to help a Huddersfield Project

The next Huddersfield SOUP will be held from 6.30pm this Wednesday, the 13 November 2019 at Cafe Ollo in The Media Centre

Come along and hear four pitches by Huddersfield people who need your help to get an idea, project or business off the ground, or support an existing project or business to grow.

Huddersfield SOUP is always well attended so we recommend pre-registering to reserve your place.

Attending SOUP will expose you to new creative projects in Huddersfield. Your entry donation contributes to the micro-grant and gives you a vote on the project that receives it.

Everyone is welcome to attend, though projects are for the benefit of Huddersfield residents.

The concept of SOUP is simple – come along, make a small donation of £5.00 that includes bowl of soup provided and served by our friends at Zephyr Bar & Kitchen, and listen to local people pitch their ideas ranging from art, social enterprise, education, technology and more.

The pitcher of the winning idea is awarded the micro-grant raised from the audience and use it to fund their plans, with the promise they will come back three months later to report on their progress.

As always, Huddersfield SOUP features a live music set, organised by Small Seeds. We have a real treat for this month's pitch event with music from SamH.

Samh has been experimenting with his unusual folk-coloured sound in Huddersfield for almost ten years. He lectures in songwriting at the University and runs songwriting workshops for communities in West Yorkshire and beyond. His most recent EP, Glowinglow, is ethereal and dreamlike and contains masterful guitar playing and odd timings.

Check out his music and follow him here:
