Silcock's Fun Fairs!
Silcock’s Amusements is a multi-generational family business established for over 100 years. We take pride in keeping up to date with the latest funfair rides and attractions, whilst offering all the traditional family favourites.


Whatever you event, your guests are going to get hungry. All our catering units are custom built and differ in appearance. From King of the Grill to the Little Grill House cottage, we have sufficient units to set up a full food court for larger events.

Hot or cold – to suit all tastes!

We offer a wide selection of hot and cold food and drinks. Whether you’re after a traditional feast or a small fork buffet, our menus can be personally tailored to suit the character of your venue, your individual requirements and budget.

Our outside catering units supply food such as hot dogs, hamburgers, southern fried chicken burgers, roast meats and chips. However, we have moved with the times. From Chinese noodles to chicken wraps, we offer more than just burger and chips. Halal products available upon request.

Only the highest quality ingredients

Silcock’s aim to use local and seasonal produce across all our food outlets. This is in keeping with our desire to provide fantastic fresh food from sustainable sources.

Experience shows that people often look for an indulgent treat on a day out, however we recognise the growing demand for healthier alternatives and can also offer vegan and specialty food options as required.

Something sweet, something seasonal

In addition to savoury snacks, we can also provide sweet stalls selling toffee apples, candy floss, fudge, popcorn, donuts, candy cables, sugar dummies and other sweet treats.

Watching candy floss spun, hot donuts being made, and the smell of fresh popcorn… what more could make your mouth water?
Silcock’s can also supply wooden chalets, grills and BBQs for Christmas markets, urban beaches and other city centre events. And we’d be happy to tender for the catering concession at a music festival or other large event.

Your perfect catering partner
