Christian said: "There will be a cozy lounge area and we will offer relaxing summer beats and local bands.

"Last year, we have organised two very successful Ice Cream Festivals in Germany (Munich and Hamburg) with more than 20,000 visitors and 50 different exhibitors."

Now Christian and Johannes are bringing the festivals to the UK.

Christian added: "It is our aim to support local businesses with their artisan products, like organic or vegan ice cream. We want to be a local festival with local products for the local people.
