Growing Together Westcliff,  47 Fairfax Drive, Westcliff-on-sea, SS0 9AG.

£5 per person, or what you can afford. Kids and performers are free.

We’re grateful to Matt King and the folks at Growing Together for offering their venue for our Summer Soup gathering. Growing Together is a wonderful project that supports mental health and well-being. The centre also hosts regular organic gardening, environmental and permaculture design courses.

We were keen to find a venue with a good outdoor space, so that Soupers can enjoy the sunshine (we’ve booked a Nice Day – what could possibly go wrong?). This event will have a festival flavour – with picnic style food, hopefully (if we can arrange it) smoothie-making bicycles, and lots of music and fun.

More details nearer the time. Anyone that’s been to a Southend Soup before will know that the events take shape organically! (If you play kettledrums, or know someone that does, we’re very keen to have some of those!)

So, for now, get the date in your diary, tell yer mates, and – most importantly – submit your ideas! Use the ‘submit an idea’ form, or send an email to
