*HOLD*THE*PHONE* Here’s the all important 1st Birthday #BrumSOUP line-up…


We’re getting super excited about out 1st Birthday party this Thursday at Impact Hub Birmingham with Eye Candy, Birmingham’s own festival of all things visual.

You will of course, hear from four brilliant projects, who all want to make a difference to a Birmingham community, and because, I’m not sure if we’ve mentioned it – It’s our birthday, we’ve got some extra little birthday flourishes to this month’s event, here is what you can expect…

GirlDreamer Mocktail Bar
GirlDreamer is part of mOmhead‘s empowerment platform for girls and young women on a mission to educate, elevate and empower through fashion, community events and school programmes.

For Birmingham Soups 1st birthday, we will be hosting an exclusive GirlDreamer Mocktail Bar for the night. We’ll be mixing, shaking and stirring up a range of tasty and refreshing drinks.

Live Screen Printing with INKwell – You can try your hand at screen printing and take home your own limited edition Birmingham SOUP Tea Towel.

It wouldn’t be a birthday without cake, so be first in the queue for our specially made birthday cake, created by artisan cake connoisseur HAVE+SOME+CAKE.

Tunes will be provided by the most excellent Bearwood Banditsexpect folk, blue grass and everything in-between.

As usual SOUP will be freshly prepared and served by the hot chicks of the Bearwood Pantry and tasty Bread kindly donated by Loaf, Stirchley’s community bakery and cookery school.

With a suggested entrance fee of £5, you the SOUP community will cast your vote and the project with the most votes wins the money taken on the door plus a generous top up fund from Eye Candy and will leave with the funds that evening.

TAKE TO THE SOAPBOX AT SOUP. If you are able to bring some food or drink to share, you’ll have the option of taking to the SOUP soapbox for one minute, to share whatever you’d like with the audience. Please note that we don’t have a science oven, so cold food please bab.
