The Lolly Labs

What is a lolly lab?

Our lolly labs are fun interactive lolly making workshops where creative approaches to ice lolly making can act as a catalyst for having conversations about the links between health, sustainability and food. Using the superfast lolly freezing machine, get a sneak peak behind the scenes in our working production kitchen, based in Florence Park. 

Who are lolly labs suitable for?


Lolly labs can be tailored to each audience, and are inclusive and accessible. We can run schools workshops, events for children with hidden health conditions, business team events, community organisation projects and so much more!

What families say about Lolly Labs; 


"More people should know about this. My son very much appreciate the relaxed atmosphere, and really enjoyed making the crafts and 'his' ice lolly"


"The children had a wonderful time. We liked the visual time table and that the children who both have ASD were able to do their lollies in a smaller group."


"It is such a relief to be around families who 'get it' and you don't have to explain your child's needs. It makes you 'not the only one'."


"It is so good for my daughter to meet others with hidden conditions and to see she is not the only one with diabetes. It was a fun activity to break the ice between families, so we can make friends and share information and experiences."


"It was amazing to bring together kids with different conditions. We have different challenges but get each other."

Spring Lolly Labs 2022

We welcomed 12 families to the production kitchen in April for brilliant creative sessions together, with thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund. Children with hidden conditions came along with their siblings and carers. Everyone designed their own lolly, shared ideas for new flavors, got involved in the production kitchen, as well in creative task such as making worry dolls and super heroes with lolly sticks! Families were able to relax in this inclusive, welcoming session, children met others who understood the challenges they face, parents swapped ideas and shared information on other local resources, and of course Ice Lollies were enjoyed by all.

Great Big Green Week Lolly Labs 2022

We opened the doors of Lolly HQ to our local community as part of Oxfordshire's Great Big Green Week - sponsored by Oxfordshire County Council. 50+ people joined us in the production kitchen to help us fill our moulds, prep the sticks learn about our local food supply chain and how we have been supporting local people living with hidden health conditions through the rollout of our Trainee Production Programme this year. All of our production helpers got to sample a free freshly made ice lolly. 

Our Lolly Labs are made possible through funding from the below:
