Next weekend the Guildhall Square will be transformed into a traditional Oktoberfest celebration. The square will be will be taken over by a beer tent which contains a seated area with a VIP area situated just in front of the stage. The focal point of the tent will be the massive 50m long bar which will be serving appx 30,000 litres of beer over the weekend!
Throughout Oktoberfest the air will be filled with the Bavarian sounds of the Oompah Brass will be performing their very own blend of ‘oompop’ across all three sessions. Their celebrity fans include Chris Evans who described them as “legends in Lederhosen” and Frank Skinner has called them “Absolutely brilliant”. Those fortunate enough to be there can expect everything from traditional folk to their own interpretation of classic tracks from Queen to Taylor Swift.
Situated outside of the tent will be a host of food stalls offering some great Bavarian style grub including sausages, pretzels and other traditional delights.
There will be three sessions available which are Friday 6 til 11pm, Saturday 12 til 5pm and Saturday 6pm til 11pm.
If you would like to be there for any of the three sessions then the ticket options are as follows:
Standing – £15
Unreserved Seating Area – £20
VIP table for 10 people – £350
I am informed that there are a very limited numbers of VIP tables remaining for the Saturday afternoon session so get in there quick if you’d like one. For further information and tickets please visit www.oktoberfestportsmouth.co.uk (booking fees apply).
