'Hattie' Van Events

All about our Hattie van

Our Hattie Van… she’s a classic, a 1975 Citroen HY to be precise with an engine that uses 1920’s parts.

Hattie was purchased at the very beginning of the HatHats journey from a small coffee company in Wales. She had spent many years driving around the Welsh countryside and needed some serious TLC.

We met our lovely Alan who is an expert classic vehicle restorer and after many weeks of blood sweat and tears (and there were lots of tears), we finally got her ready to trade. In addition to the original bodywork and engine, we have installed lots of clever technology, making her fully self-sufficient.

The onboard coffee machine is powered from LPG gas from a gas canister that is concealed on board the van. We also have lots of clever electronics which are powered from large onboard batteries that mean the van doesn’t need a generator and can run for nearly a day without a recharge.

During her normal week, you can find Hattie parked up outside Chestfield & Swalecliffe Station every weekday morning between 06:00am and 10:00am Monday – Friday.

After her morning stint at the station, Hattie then starts her route around various businesses across Whitstable and Herne Bay bringing people their well-earned mid-morning caffeine and cake fix. You can call Hattie Van Direct on 01227 64 90 90 while she’s out on her morning rounds.

Book Hattie for an event

Hattie can also attend outdoor events throughout the summer months, such as school fairs, open days, and even a wedding or two. Because of Hattie’s delicate engine, she can’t travel very far for these events, but to find out more, keep reading.

Hattie is available for:

  • Fetes
  • Sports days
  • Firework displays
  • Weddings
  • And more!

In fact, our Hattie Van is available for any event that is not too far from her base in Whitstable, Kent. Hattie has a vintage engine (delicate, temperamental, or expensive engine, depending on who you ask!) so she can’t make long journeys. It can be dangerous for her restored 1920’s engine to travel too far and she might not make it.

However, if your event is relatively close to Whitstable, Kent, then please get in touch.

We have a number of packages available dependent on the event and our team will happily talk through the options with you.
