Ice Cream Dreams is a family run business catering for Weddings, Civil Partnerships, Corporate events, Country shows, Parties, Galas, and Fairs. It is owned and operated by Debbie Tilsley who is ably assisted by husband Steve . 


We first had the idea of running the bike more as a fun and entertaining pastime but when you are going flat-out for about four hours it doesn’t seem much like a pastime, but it is still great fun and everyone who sees the bike wants to talk about it and it seems to give people a reason to smile  says Steve.  In fact it has gone down so well we have bought another one to cover the demand.

Debbie and Steve first met on the miners strike in Derbyshire in 1984.

Steve was a policeman with the Cambridgeshire Force and met Debbie, a local girl from a small mining village, in the only pub the police were allowed to go to, in that area.

They have now been married for 28 years and have four children aged between 26 and 11.

Debbie has been working in the caring profession with young persons for many years.

When I was a girl I used to help my dad working on an Ice Cream van in the Chesterfield area. He used to drive me to a pitch in the van and set me up, leaving me to it whilst he worked elsewhere.  I used to get threatened with iron bars by rival Ice Cream vans if they thought we were on their area. I never thought that I would one day be serving Ice Cream again and actually enjoying it.

Steve has now retired from the Cambridgeshire Police after 36 years and now works as both a Chauffeur with a Cambridge company and as a security manager at the Wembley and Emirates Stadiums.

“I was always told that the older you get….the wiser you get.
I guess that’s true to some extent but I also believe that the older you get…. the dafter you get and that’s just the way it should be !!

The bikes are traditional 1940’s style Ice Cream Bicycles, a real show-pieces, which can be used equally both indoors or out. They are always attended by smartly dressed serving staff, fully trained in food hygiene and dressed appropriately. We are all fully CRB checked and fully insured for public liability cover.

We can decorate the bike however you want  at no extra cost, to suit the occasion. Just let us know in advance and we will be happy to oblige.

Your guests will be surprised, delighted and impressed and leave with a lasting memory of the occasion. An Ice Cream Bike always causes much discussion and a great level of interest.

We serve only the finest Dairy Ice Cream from the award-winning Dennetts of Spilsby which is complemented with a range of delicious toppings. We also offer the alternatives of Frozen Yoghurt or delicious Sorbet in a variety of mouth-watering flavours.

So if you would like to have the bike at any event or function you have planned please contact us for an informal no obligation chat or send us an e-mail via the contact us page. We will always strive to make your event even more special.

So if you like delicious Ice Cream just give us a ring today and we will do everything we can to help.
