Ice Cream Festival at KX this w/e!

31 Aug

Put those two words together with some pastel-hued cows and place on Granary Square, King’s Cross and…MAGIC! And it’s open to all – no entry fee, just coins for the cones…

Come and learn about king’s Cross’ intimate history with ICE – yes people, this was once a mecca for the frozen stuff and this Ice Cream Festival is the latest reimagining of its importance to the area. To celebrate these frosty roots, visitors can learn how to milk a cow, try a load of different ice creams, discover more about the history of ice cream and how to make it.

Then there’s the food offerings – and eat.st has it licked…

As well as the brilliant eat.st favourite Sorbitium Ices who will be churning out their incredible flavour combinations in ice cream, sorbet and sherbet forms, there will be some great food to temper the ice cream excess.

Bleecker St. Burger, Horn OK Please, Streetza and Van Dough will all be on hand to take you away from the creamy pastel-mania for a moment.

And definitely check out our friend from the North, Ginger’s Comfort Emporium is bringing her own style of brilliance down from Manchester – a rarity and a pleasure.

The Ice Cream Festival – Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September, 11am – 6pm, Granary Square, N1C
