How it works


It’s simple, come along, make a small donation, we suggest a minimum of £5 which includes a bowl of soup, a vote and the opportunity to listen to four local people pitch their ideas.

Questions

Four questions from the audience

The winning pitch receives 100% of the donated door money, its then up to them to use their micro-grant to help make their idea a reality. The only stipulation is they live in North Kirklees or benefit North Kirklees with their idea, do not use technology during their pitch (props are allowed), and that they come back to a future Soup to let the audience know how they are getting on.

Dewsbury Soup #5 21st November at Howlands.

School St, Dewsbury WF13 1LD


Closing date for pitch applications is 7th Nov.
