London Oktoberfest is not just about beer and bratwurst, you know.
There’s also live music, with bands coming over from Germany for the occasion, and a huge tent decorated in the traditional colours of blue and white to create that singalong bierkeller vibe. There are also waiters in lederhosen and waitresses in dirndls – who bring you copious and repeated amounts of, er, beer and bratwurst.
You can tailor your night to suit your pocket. Ticket options range from £5-£15 for General Admission, which includes admission and an unreserved seat at the back of the tent, to £60-£65 VIP packages which include a reserved seat in front of the band with table service, a glass of German sparkling wine, 2 x 1 Mass (1.5 pint) Bavarian FestBeer, 1 Underberg shot, a welcome Bavarian snack plate and German Schnitzel with Bavarian potato salad.

19th-21st October – Walpole Park, Ealing
