London Oktoberfest is back! This massive, Bavarian-style celebration returns to Ealing's Walpole Park this October, before schuhplattler-ing its way to the Square Mile for more beer-fuelled fun.
With over 50,000 revellers expected across the three weekends, it's the biggest Oktoberfest-inspired event the UK has to offer — about as close as you can get to the real deal here in London!
So, what sort of antics can you expect, then? Step inside London Oktoberfest's massive marquee and experience the best in Bavarian hospitality: think live oompah music, lederhosened servers, and frothy steins of beer. But this isn't just any old beer — it's been specially crafted for Oktoberfest in a small brewery closed to Nuremberg, so it's sehr authentisch.
There's plenty of traditional food to line your stomach with, too, like brezel, schnizel, and bratwurst. You can even finish your feast with the classic German digestif, Underberg!
London Oktoberfest pitches up at Walpole Park on Thursday 19 October and runs for three days. The following week, it moves to Moorgate's Finsbury Square for five more traditional Oktoberfest celebrations (26-27 October, 2-4 November) and a special Halloween edition (28 October).
If you're planning a last minute work do, know that corporate packages are available at both the Moorgate and Ealing editions, with costumes included (think dirndl and lederhosen) to help your team really look the part. For everyone else, costumes will be available to purchase at the venue, if you don't happen to have a traditional Bavarian outfit gathering dust in wardrobe.
Tickets to London Oktoberfest start at just £5, though there are plenty of upgrades available, from German sparkling wine to a seat right by that oompah band. Get yours while you can.
