For Jaimini & Ravi’s wedding in the grounds of Wrest Hall, Silsoe, the weather was somewhat breezy and overcast; but having our ice cream tricycles set up inside the impressive orangery following their ceremony, their close to 200 wedding guests soon forgot about the gloomy clouds outside as they enjoyed such exotic ice cream flavours as Ferrero Rocher, Mango & Passion Fruit and Coconut.
Ice Dreams also came true for Sumit & Sonia’s wedding reception at Coworth Park, Ascot. We were tipped off by the groom that the bride’s grandfather – Badgis, once owned an Ice Cream Truck. Sumit wanted to surprise Sonia with a fitting tribute to Badgis at their wedding by having his name on the ice cream menu board which we duly arranged. ‘Operation Scoop’ then went ahead and we set up our tricycles discreetly out of view and following the speeches the lovely surprise was sprung, much to the delight of the bride. – Job Done!
Following the success of our Corporate Ice Cream Service last year in supporting Suzuki at Silverstone and Millbrook we made another return visit this year to the iconic Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire as Suzuki exhibited their range of fleet cars at Company Car In Action – a flagship event in the fleet world calendar. We were not blessed with great weather this year but we were still able to maintain a high footfall to the Suzuki exhibition stand with our popular branded trike and branded ice creams over the two day event.
‘What a fantastic day we’ve had at Great Rail Journeys! The Ice Dream Team were wonderful, bringing ice cream heaven to 150 employees at our head office in York! From the branding support to the ice cream flavours – the whole experience was not only delicious, but so much fun! We absolutely loved it, Neil & Tracey were so polite, tidy, patient and enthusiastic – would recommend to anyone! Thank you so much, you’ve helped us celebrate a new product launch perfectly!’ Frances Geale Brand Manager – Great Rail Journeys
We’re in!… Since moving into our new Borough we are proud to be listed in the Rossendale Food & Drink Guide 2019 and we look forward to welcoming new business from our local community.
We’ve already had a busy April thanks to the lovely Easter sunshine and our ice creams went down a ‘Storm’ with the locals not to mention Chewbacca & the band of Star Wars Troopers who dropped in on us at the Bacup Easter Festival!
No, we weren’t auditioning! The Producer’s of the show contacted us to attend day 1 of the Manchester Auditions at The Lowry to serve ice cream to the Judges’ We had a great day soaking up the party atmosphere and all the excitement upon the BGT Judges’ arrival through to the live auditions. Our cameras unfortunately were not permitted with our back-stage passes, but hey! – we came, we saw, we scooped! and we can’t wait to watch series 13 scheduled to be broadcast on ITV in early April.
The Ice Dream Experience relocated last year a little closer to Manchester and set our new Dream HQ in Rossendale. This naturally meant that we had to be reassessed for our food hygiene by our new Borough Council and we are proud to report that we have maintained our Food Standard Agency 5 Rating, the highest rating that can be given under the national scheme.
