It’s that special time of year when beer lovers converge, knock back some steins, feast on pretzels and party across the capital. Oktoberfest is here. We’ve put on our finest lederhosen and dirndls and scoured London for the best Skint friendly deals. Ja, ein bier, bitte.
Get ready for a double whammy of beery action at London Oktoberfest 2018. The multi-site medley kicks off at a cavernous space in Canary Wharf before moving north to Finsbury Park.
Organisers are transforming both venues in to gigantic German beer halls so expect oompah-oompah music, traditional Bavarian munch and mountains and mountains of golden ale.
It’s destined to be immense, in all meanings of the word. The Millwall Park tent can hold 2,500 and more than 3,000 in Finny P. Germanic ghouls can also check out the one off Halloween party.
