Our Festival Wedding - Thank you
Thank you so much for all your help in the summer for our party & our colour celebration for our wedding. It was the perfect setting for a wedding and restaurant food. With the most perfect atmosphere and the best falafel we have ever had.
"Flo the Coffee Van was the perfect addition to our merry band of Artists and Artisans at Grenaby Studios (Isle of Man Art Festival 2017). Flo was surrounded by fluttering bunting, and Annabel made streams of festival-goers very happy with tea, coffee and generous slices of her delicious homemade cakes that made us go weak at the knees! With a beaming smile, Annabel couldn't do enough to help. Look forward to working with her again. - IOM Arts Festival
Went down a Storm
We hired Flo for our staff family fun day at Silly Moos - their pulled pork baps, falafel burgers and cakes went down an absolute storm. As always, Annabel and Stuart provided a timely, professional, friendly service, and we have had nothing but glowing feedback from our staff. Everything was so fresh and it's always great to see caterers supporting local. Can't wait to use them again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend for any occasion. - Lucy Verdon, Eastera Company Family Day

Festivals & Stretch Tents
Stuart & Annabel owners of Flo have many years experience working the UK Festival scene. Mix this experience with their unique Stretch Tents & Festival intuition plus their 2.6KW PA provides a versatile venue anywhere. Stuarts sound engineering skills provide an amazing quality sound for Bands, Acoustic Sets or your chosen DJs.
Named after Annabels Gran, Flo started life in Paris in 1968 as a horsebox. Christmas 2014 she was found in a barn in France & brought over to West Yorkshire, where Annabel & Stuart had her lovingly restored and converted into the Flo you see at events today. She rarely makes it above 30mph so you may see her out and about on the Islands roads, on her way to keep the next festival supplied with music, hot coffee & festival comfort food.
Annabel & Stuart
Mr & Mrs Flo
Mrs Flo, aka Annabel, grew up in N.I. where her Granny taught her to bake. Annabel worked the festival circuit in the 90's with the Tiny Tea Tent & an Indian Silver Stall before deciding to grow up & get a 'proper' career as a Food Tech teacher. And then there is Mr Flo - he's a complete hippy at heart & a wannabe Pirate who is always happy to help any event organiser.
