Schools & Charities

Are you organising a school event? Did you know that your school could benefit from 10% of our takings (subject to minimum takings of £150). 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. hire of party tents, carnival and giant games.

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

From Primary to Secondary or College and University, the type of events that we can attend are many and diverse including:

  • Sport’s Days, providing fun and refreshment for all – including parents & grandparents!
  • Football Tournaments
  • Celebration Events
  • Seasonal Events e.g. Spring, Summer & Christmas Fairs or Fetes
  • End of Term Treat Days – a great way to treat your pupils for working hard all term!
  • Eco Days – our environmentally friendly trikes and carts are a must!
  • Sponsored Walks – providing well earned refreshment at the end of your event
  • School Proms
  • University Open days

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 ensuring you get the best possible Carnival Experience for all age groups either indoors or out. Prices include delivery, set up and collection with discounts if booked with other services.
