The Last Polka fans

To celebrate the inaugural Cooler Lumpur Festival, themed #Word, The Last Polka have created two new flavours inspired by books. The ice cream flavours will be launched on Tuesday 4 June at The Bee, Publika, with free cups for the first 50 people to arrive.

The launch kicks off at 8pm. Choose between Green Eggs and Ham, a peppermint ice cream with chunky chocolate fudge, and Wonderland, a butterscotch ice cream with walnut and black pepper brittle.

From 8.30pm, you’ll also be able to test your pop culture knowledge at a quiz hosted by the festival’s Literary Director, Umapagan Ampikaipakan. For those who hand around, there’s another dubious treat – you can catch BFM hosts such as Ezra Zaid and Sharaad Kuttan reading from bestseller 50 Shades of Grey!

The Cooler Lumpur Festival, which takes place 21-23 June at Publika, will be a celebration of words across the arts and in daily life, featuring panel discussions, readings, workshops and more.
