Want more of a say on what events happen in Bridport but don’t know where to turn?
Port East is using the successful Soup model, raising financial support for inspiring local projects and initiatives, to enable the Bridport community to curate its very own fortnight of events in March & April 2020.
The idea is simple: For £4 you get a bowl of soup made from locally sourced produce and three votes. During the evening twelve local projects will each deliver a four-minute pitch about their event and its community benefits. The pitches are followed by a community dinner, and then the crowd votes.
Eight winning projects will each receive a £400 budget, support from Port East to plan and promote their event and use of the Sanctuary at the United Church. The chosen events will form a community festival fortnight to take place in March and April 2020.
Join us by signing up via eventbrite to confirm your place and pay 'what you feel' on the night (suggested contribution from £4).
If you’ve got a great event idea to benefit the local community and would like to pitch on the evening, then fill out our simple application form by 10th November 2019.
Also follow the Port East Facebook page for updates on the event.
