Events

These last 12 months have been a tumultuous time for events in general, with many big names across the world-scene seeing unprecedented cancellation and postponement. Whether sporting, entertainment, theatre, or arts they have all been affected equally, however whilst some event types have returned to a ‘new-normal’; food festivals, country shows and the like are still struggling to find a route back,

The events team at Purbeck Ice Cream have been busy supporting those events that have been able to successfully operate in Dorset and the surrounding counties, and we will continue to monitor the situation regarding our 2021 events schedule.

In the meantime, our event team are now experienced operators in a covid-safe environment. We are able to offer our scooping services to most event types, so please drop us a line if you want to discuss any opportunities this year.
