Oktoberfest Returns To Portsmouth


Are you ready for quite possibly the most fun you could ever have when wearing lederhosen (optional) and singing at the top of your voice to an Oompah brass band? This coming October 6-7th will see Guildhall Square once more 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.

This event is not to be missed and will bring a smile to every single person that attends. More fun than you can shake a German sausage at…

It didn’t take long for the steins to be filled by the attentive servers who were also dressed in the traditional gear.

To entertain the crowds the organisers enlisted the awesome Oompah Brass

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.

There are a few options from standing up to VIP but be sure to get in there quick. You can check the ticket availability and prices HERE.

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).

Without a doubt one of the most entertaining bands I’ve ever witnessed…
