Richard Hammond, Lorraine Kelly & Angellica Bell serve up soup at London charity pop up


A new celebrity-lead soup restaurant will be opening its doors for three days only from 17-19th October; the ‘Soup with a Smile Pop Up’ in the heart of Soho, London has been cooked up by Centrepoint’s Big Broth with Richard Hammond, Lorraine Kelly and Angellica Bell each taking their turn on the hob to cook and serve up their personal soup recipes to the public – all hosted by the pop up’s Maitre D’Aldo Zilli as the tables are turned on the celebrity chef.

The Soup with a Smile Pop Up’s aim is to kick off the Big Broth’s call to action to get the nation stirring up a soupathon of more than 30,000 bowls of soup on 2nd Nov, via soup parties at home, in the office or community. And the smile? Soupathon participants are invited to customise their soup with a smiley face with whatever comes to hand in the kitchen – croutons, basil, cherry tomatoes, grated cheese; to share on social channels using #TheBigBroth.

The Soup with a Smile Pop Up will be located at Centrepoint’s Dean Street Café, Soho with two lunchtime sessions per day 12 – 1pm and 1– 2pm.

Diners will be tasked with the creative challenge to ‘share a smile’ on their soup, customise their soup and fashion a smiley face with the various vegetables and garnishes laid out on the table to share on social channels using #TheBigBroth.
