Everyday Is Like Sundae – hire a 1950s ice cream van

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.


Morecambe is rapidly becoming the retro capital of the north – the refurbished art deco Midland Hotel is about to open its doors, vintage property all around is getting a makeover, there’s a 1950s seaside weekend coming up – and now there’s a 1950s ice cream van on the front.

Everyday Is Like Sundae is an authentically-restored classic Bedford CF van, decorated with original/tradiitonal signage and selling locally-produced ice cream made on a farm – or you can go for the dairy-free (soya-based) option.

And you can hire the van too, should you have any kind of event upcoming. Just drop Sunset Ices a line for pricing/availability. or ask them if you happen to be on Morecambe sea front this summer.

  1. This Bedford CF icecream van is not a 50s van though.
    They never made bedford CF in the 50s.
    they first made CF’s in 1969
    Before that they where CA

  2. Yes its a 70’s Bedford CF, but bet you did not know that the 99 cornet the lady is holding with the mouth water Cadbury’s flake goes back as long at the Bedford marque, yes over 75 years since the first 99 cornet was sold.
    In 2009 The Bedford Register is holding a series of Bedford Drive-In events featuring only Bedford CA and CF ice cream vans.
