Ice Cream Treats For School Children & Carnival Games

The Ice Dream Experience attends schools all over the north west with our ice cream tricycles, party tents and games. Where schools request us to attend with ice cream, in most cases we only require a couple of days notice. There is no need to book in advance, so if organising Sport’s Days for example, you can wait until the weather forecast is favourable before contacting us. There is no cost to your school irrespective of if your event goes ahead or not.

Schools can benefit from 10% of our takings (subject to minimum takings of £200). This is a great way to top-up school funds whilst at the same time adding a fun factor to your event. Schools also qualify for discounted rates when booking our other services e.g. ice cream, hire of party tents, carnival and giant games.

A selection of traditional carnival games such as Hook a Duck, Tombola, Penny Throw all housed in our colourful carnival tents. Most games can be set up indoors space permitting e.g. in main Assembly Halls or Gyms. Floors are protected by using felt mats under each leg of the tents. It’s lots of fun and hassle free.

Games for outdoors only include Medieval Stocks and Coconut Shy. We provide an appropriate selection of games to suit your school. This ensures the best possible Carnival Experience for all age groups. Prices include delivery, set up and collection with discounts if booked with other services.

If you are organising a School Prom then why not organise to have one or more of our trikes to attend? They make for great for photograph opportunities and also provides an alternative to a reception canapé or as a luxury dessert.

‘The Ice Dream Experience is certainly that! The ice cream tasted sensational, a real dream for the taste buds. Neil and his team had a wonderful rapport with the children and staff. Nothing was too much trouble (even the Igloo!). A truly amazing experience and one that we will be enjoying again!’
