The Ice Cream Van

Rebecca Davies


The sounds, tastes, and flavours of East London come alive in Rebecca Davies’s Ice Cream Van. Throughout 2013 she is traveling up and down the country collecting English folk traditions and stories of community and bringing them back to East London where they will be re-appropriated, re-enacted and shared with locals.

The Ice Cream Van is a place of joy, public gathering, exchange and conversation, and this project celebrates our weird and wonderful histories by staging events right up your street.. From cheese chasing to karaoke crooning, nettle eating to disco dancing, scarecrow stuffing to bingo calling the Ice Cream Van breathes new life into old traditions and whips them up for all to share.
