Last Thursday, our tummies were filled with excitement, butterflies and soup. Yup, you guessed it, the event we kept banging on about was about to start. SOUP at Take A Part in Plymouth where everyone paid £10 for soup and the money went towards the winning pitches and the Junk Food Shop who produced the soup from diverted food.

The soup was amazing and so was the outcome. We actually won which is why we took this weird and wonderful photo above! We have gained funding from the Michael Bridgewater Fund and will work with the Efford community to deliver our project.

We just want to say a massive thank you to those who brought soup and voted for us. We also want to thank Take A Part for creating a safe and comfortable atmosphere, its so important when your knees are shaking when its you turn to pitch. Well done also to Flo and the Imperfect Orchestra.

Can't wait to start seeing our seed of an idea grow.

We are excited to announce that we successfully applied to present our idea at the Take A Part SOUP Event in Plymouth on the 7th of June. We have five minutes to pitch our idea of involving older people in a steering group to create a programme that will enable the older generation to engage with theatre and the arts. We are working in partnership with AGE UK Plymouth to shape our idea and give us support and direction so we can create something sustainable and of the highest quality. Think of us in two weeks time, when we have to persuade a room of people to vote for us! Eek!
