Steins at the ready…

The biggest beer festival in the world hits the UK again this October! Bringing the very best of Bavarian food, drink and music to cities across the country, Oktoberfest has become a staple in the calendar year. Check out our go to guide for the rundown on the highlights of this year’s event.

Running across two consecutive weekends, Oktoberfest comes to Leeds from the 11th October. Temple Arches, in the heart of South Bank, is this year’s venue and will be turned into a Bavarian dream.

Make sure to check out the traditional oompah band, Bavarian Strollers, who will be playing German songs as well as singalong classics.
We highly recommend becoming familiar with a few German tracks that make more than one appearance in the tent. Start stretching those vocal chords! Here are our top picks:

Ein Prosit
Hande zum Himmel

From 16th to the 20th October, Manchester will play host to the Oktoberfest revelries which will be held on The Yards at Mayfield, right in the centre of the city. Two brand new beers will be on offer this year – the light and sweet Festbeer, and the Bavarian Craftbeer Lager.
If you fancy deviating from the usual festivities at The Yards, then head to our top picks of Manchester bars and pubs offering a Bavarian experience…
