OKTOBERFEST will return to Birmingham for the fifth year running on October 18 and 19, and promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

Although the name is yet to be revealed, organisers have found a new venue at – 60 Hampton Street, Hockley, Birmingham, B19 3LU – for visitors to enjoy an entirely new experience.

A spokesperson for Oktoberfest said: “Our Seasonal Markets team colloborated with The Old Crown for another year to bring guests our legenedary Oktoberfest extravaganza.

“As usual, we are decking the venue out with our traditional German Oktoberfest decor, including bench seating and alloacated seating for groups with more than six people.

“And what would this event be without beer? Of course we have classic German beers that’ll definitely tickele your fancy, but don’t worry if beer isn’t your thing.

“We’re keeping our bars stocked with German gin, wines and Oktoberfest-themed cocktails too.”

Alongside the drinks offering, Yardbirds will be selling traditional German schnitzel and The Bournville Waffle Company will create a menu for all things Oktoberfest.

There will also be live band performances, djs and plenty of fun and games.

“The best-dressed competition is back this year too, so whip out your lederhosen.

“It will be one heck of an event, like no other.

“So come on your own or with a bunch of friends and make sure you get involved with this completely immersive and unique ‘German’ experience.”

Tickets cost £12, with early bird tickets available for £10.
