Children’s & Adult Birthday Parties

Children and adults alike love a Mr Whippy ice cream. We always use the freshest milk mix for superior ice cream in taste and quality. We can supply a fantastic ice cream van to thrill and entertain your child on their big day.

As part of the package, you will receive our ice cream van at your choice of party venue (this could be a village hall or outside your home).

We will serve ice cream to friends and family at the birthday party throughout, including 99’s, tubs and knickerbocker glory. We have all the sauces and toppings including sherbets, Oreos, choc & nut etc.

A highlight of booking an ice cream van for a birthday party is when we arrive playing a ‘Happy Birthday chime.
We wait for the right time before playing it and rolling in. It’s always a huge head turner and the birthday child will feel like 1 in a million.

Bookings are now being taken for the following areas.


Preston, Penwortham, Garstang, Southport, Formby, Crosby, Ormskirk, Wigan, Blackpool, Blackburn, Leyland, Chorley, Bolton, and Greater Manchester.

Amazing value and an inclusive price

School Visits

School visits are always incredibly popular for ice cream vans. Children love them and it’s the perfect treat. Over the last few years, we have served tens of thousands of children and teachers for end-of-year treats, and leavers’ parties.
Normally when we attend a school we offer either cone+flake or tub+flake or an ice lolly. Prices are based on the number of children expected.
As a general guide, we can do around 100 children in 30 minutes or 200 an hour. About 400 in 2 hours.

We recently had a ‘big’ birthday and really wanted ice cream as a dessert. We messaged Kevin who duly replied and turned up on the night playing the “Happy Birthday” tune on the ice cream van! The service and the ice cream were both excellent and really added the finishing touch to our event. Thank you again Kevin, would highly recommend, Barry & Jaqui.

We called Francos Whippy as a last minute thought for our wedding on 30th August! And it worked, went down a treat. He made the effort to make the van look super and was very friendly. Our family and friends really enjoyed it. Thank you for making our special day one to remember. Craig & Jess

We were a little last minute in organising the ice cream for school, the weather had surprised us! From my first call to Kevin, he was wonderful, certainly knew what he was doing thought of all dietary requirements. Very efficient, he fit us in between schools and the children’s faces were a picture! A great surprise for the end of term! Thank you so much Highly recommend for any event!
