The Vintage Car Boot Sale, Queen Elizabeth Park

Our fist ever car boot sale was a challenge, we are not a small fly by night operation!! We had to set up and pull down at double speed and found ourselves the first on and last off. It was a brilliant event and we fitted in a treat. Our crew were superheroes (as ever), roll on the next one!


The-trip-Out

The trip Out

The trip out was like going back in time to the days of free festivals, what a breath of fresh air! We had no idea what to expect and were pleasantly surprised by a bunch of really nice hairy bikers who didn’t need a mass of wristbands, rules and fences to keep them in order, these guys know how to …


Wilderness

Wilderness

Yet again we went to Wilderness with our great friends The House of Fairytales. This year we moved out of the kids field and into the craft field. With a yoga yurt on one side and a merry band of whittlers opposite it was a refreshing change of scenery. Of course we blasted them with rock and roll all weekend …


Hotrod-Hayride

Hotrod Hayride

We always have fun at the hayride, surrounded by the cheapest (and the best) vintage stalls to be found on the rockers scene, the crew took the opportunity to stock up on all those bits and pieces a 1950s ice cream girl needs!


Camp-Bestival

Camp Bestival

Back on the top of the hill in the magic meadow, Camp Bestival was sunny and full of happy kids, our favourite kind of customers, this festival has begun to feel like coming home.


Memphis-Belles

Memphis Belles

This was the first time we ve taken on a one day event, exhausted from Glastonbury we were happy to become the chillout area to a great bunch of rockers….


Glastonbury-2014

Glastonbury 2014

This year the Jiggery Pokery Parlour got its act together with an all night cocktail bar in Heaven, Shangri La. With a choice of 10 cocktails prepared by our expert mixologists we were mobbed from morning until night, our expresso martinis went down particularly well with a very tired crew in need of a pick me up! Shangi La looked …


ATOMIC-FESTIVAL

Atomic Festival

This was the first year for Atomic festival so no one knew what to expect. The venue, Sywell, a 1950s aerodrome set the scene for what is destined to become the best vintage festival in the calendar. The sun shone all weekend, the vintage vehicles, caravans, music and dancing were fantastic and overwhelmed by the turn out we ran out …


The-Hotrod-Hayride-1

The Hotrod Hayride

The Hotrod Hayride was a journey into the unknown for the ice cream parlour. For the first time we were immersed in the Rocking world. We were placed right in the middle of the arena of retro stalls and surrounded by the coolest looking crowd we had encountered so far. Billie sorted out our look with hair and make-up and …

Glastonbury Festival 2013

The Parlour crew and the Camp cooks were a match made in Heaven (or somewhere near the gateway) in Shangri la this year. We stayed open 24 hours a day selling cocktails at night and the usual ice cream, waffles and coffee in the day time…..no rest for the wicked!

Camp Bestival 2013

Camp Bestival was great fun , we were neighbours with Wagamama which was a winner for food swaps! The two crews were instantly best mates and spent the rest of the summer hanging out at different events! This was indisputably our best pitch of the year with great music next door ( David Roddigan was one of their celebrity guests …

Bestival was right at the end of the season

Bestival was right at the end of the season ,definitely not for kids (school had already gone back for the summer) and quite a hard gig for the parlour. It was Bens birthday ,our star Barista, and the music line up was great so everyone had a laugh. We were sited, definitely for aesthetic reasons in the magic wishing tree …


Mischief Festival

Mischief was the smallest festival we have done so far and full of surprises! After a few teething problems getting onto site we were shocked to find ourselves next to a booming Gabba sound system, there was no point in turning on our tiny 50s background sounds! The crowd was young and skint but the atmosphere was vibrant and amidst …


jpp-Wilderness-festival

Wilderness Festival

We tagged along with House of Fairytales for Wilderness festival, and found ourselves in the kids field for the first time at a festival. The parlour went down a storm and we quickly developed a fan club that came back to eat at least once a day! It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and we actually sold out on the …


Vintage car boot sale on the South Bank

The j5 lorry made a guest appearance at the vintage car boot sale this autumn. It was used as a record stall and looked right at home there. The event was a great success, teaming with the vintage fashionistas of London. Hopefully we’ll be back there in spring 2014 with the parlour.

A note about the 2013 season

The summer of 2013 was our first full season out on the road and a great test for the parlour and everyone involved. The most important thing, we had a great time and didn’t go bust! We learned a lot about the business, our customers and what needs to be changed (especially the name!) to make things run smoothly. Thanks …

Boomtown 2012

We had so much fun at Boomtown. What a brilliant festival! We were  pitched  in Downtown opposite the big wheel and surrounded by the chaos of Mayfair. We got on really well with neighbouring food stalls and our massive crew stuffed themselves on pasta and pizza all weekend in return for coffee and ice creams . Lexi  heard  Jimmy Cliff playing in …

London Pleasure Gardens 2012

The parlour provided the crew food for the build during some of the most extreme weather conditions you can get in England. The team spirit and commitment of the Pleasure Gardens crew was amazing, everyone worked like Trojans towards a common goal and we were glad to be a part of that. Our opening event was Paradise Gardens, the site …

House of Fairytales

This was our first ever event and an incredible learning curve. We met the Purbecks ice cream people who are locals to the festival and decided we wanted to work with them, what a great team and delicious ice cream! We were invited to the Festival by the House of Fairytales, thanks Gavin and Debs for your brilliance as usual, …
