Dust off your little leather shoes with the shiny buckles and squeeze into your Lederhosen because there’s a fair whack of opportunities to down some brilliant Bavarian beer and pop some massive sausages in your mouth in Manchester this Oktoberfest.
The largest of such events surely must be the huge Beer Hall being set up at Bowlers Exhibition Centre down near the Trafford Centre with enough seats for 2,000 thirsty people and 10,000 litres of German Bier served in them bloody big bugger steins.
There will also be two live bands to hit the stage, playing classics throughout the night, including a proper German Oompah band that will teach the crowd how to sing and dance to all the Oktoberfest classics, including ‘Ein Prosit’ – probably originally sung by David Hasselhoff or something.
Food wise the fully-costumed staff will be serving up authentic Bratwurst sausages straight off the grill, as well as massive fresh pretzels to chew on while your face is half jammed in a massive glass of beer.
If you don’t like beer though, or don’t eat sausages then you need not worry – there will be plenty of veggie options and other non-beer options available. They probably won’t have Blue WKD though so don’t be disappointed if that’s the case.
