Reading SOUP holds events every other month. Entry is £5, which gets you a bowl of soup, art, a live music performance and a donation to the winning community project. All the entry money goes to the winning project, so we cover the cost of food and drink ourselves. We may ask for a small donation for drinks and other refreshments.
