Oktoberfest has become one of the most iconic events in the calendar year. Thousands upon thousands of people flock to Munich to have the experience of Oktoberfest, so why not leave them to it and go to one closer to home?
This deal I have found on travelbird.co.uk is only £6 to get into an Oktoberfest in the UK. You can either go to the Oktoberfest celebrations in Birminghan, London or Manchester. Each of these have select dates on which you can attend:
- London: 12/10/2014 12.00-19.00
- Birmingham: 15/10/2014 & 16/10/2014 16.00 – 23.00 + 19/10/2014 14.00 – 20.00
- Manchester: 22/10/2014 & 23/10/2014 16.00 – 23.00 + 26/10/2014 12.30 – 19.30
The London Oktoberfest has been a really popular event for years now and takes place in Millwall Park, Canary Wharf. It’s really close to the tube/DLR so there’s no need to worry about how to get home, you can just jump on the tube to either a train station or to home! This tent holds over 3000 people for the day it takes place. It’s definitely worth considering, it’s a good laugh and quite a fun thing to do with your friends. You can get dressed up in either a dirndl or lederhosen and drink too much beer. What’s not to love?
The Birmingham Oktoberfest is slightly smaller, but occurs for more days than the London Oktoberfest, giving you more choice as to when you want to go! It takes place in Nature Park and is definitely going to be a party you won’t forget in a hurry. It’s a Bavarian-style event, the traditional kind. So you can expect everybody to be dressed up, hair done, some bad German folk music playing and the overwhelming smell of beer and sausage hanging in the air.
The Manchester Oktoberfest is perhaps the most traditional of the three, boasting long communal tables at which you will be served by your waitress/waiter, who will definitely have donned the traditional outfits! The long tables is a really nice way to celebrate Oktoberfest and embodies the spirit of everybody being friends for the time period. I can guarantee you’ll make friends you won’t forget in a hurry at this event.
So why not?! This is the perfect excuse for you and a few friends to dress up, feel spectacularly stupid and drink enough beer to make you lose your inhibitions. It’s really good fun and definitely something you have to do at least once in your lifetime!
