In 2010 it was time for a wardrobe change and the van had its next makeover. It was spray painted by Bristol Graffitti artist Paris
and the Hippy Chippy as we know it today was born.
Over the next few years the van came along towing our juice bar Soup A Juice to festivals such as Glastonbury, The Big Chill and others.
The Hippy Chippy van was born in 1972 and lived in the south West of England. In the summer of 1999, Chris (one of the founders of the business) and his girlfriend Laura found the van at the Green Gathering Festival in wiltshire.
At the time the van was a plain royal blue. Through Chris's Hippy connections the van was given a hippy makeover and named the freedom van. From there on Chris and Laura enjoyed the Freedom the van gave them and the many adventures they had at festivals.
The van always attracted a lot of attention and it wasn't long before it was recruited for the national adveertising campaign for the Freeserve internet providor and it was now a TV star
The van also appeared on Bargain hunt and in Marie Claire magazine
