5593104Erdinger Oktoberfest London
DateThursday 5th October 2017 to Sunday 22nd October 2017
DescriptionThe biggest ever German Oktoberfest is coming to London next month. Erdinger Oktoberfest will have a 3,000 capacity authentic beer hall with huge funfair on Greenwich Peninsula from October 5th to 22nd. German brewer Erdinger is going to build a traditional Bavarian beer hall and fun fair on a site overlooking the Thames on Greenwich Peninsula near the O2 Arena which will run across 10 days (Thurs, Fri, Sat, for three weeks and one Sunday) from 5th October to 22nd October. It is a massive undertaking and the main marquee will have over 220 bench tables, set in a huge open-plan beer hall made from wooden floors and walls. The interior will be decorated with floral garlands, a traditional blue and white striped roof, and will have a huge stage for live music and entertainment. The exterior will be purpose built to look like the outside of a traditional 19th century Bavarian beer hall and most importantly they are shipping over 250,000 pints of premium "Erdinger Weissbier" (wheat beer) and an award-winning lager "Fischers Hell", direct from their brewery in Bavaria. Tickets are on sale now from Oktoberfest event organiser Uwe Bergman, whose firm has 10 years experience of putting on similar events in several other cities said: "We are going to bring our Bavarian Oktoberfest to London and create the most authentic event held outside of Germany." The entire site for the Erdinger Oktoberfest will be on a beautiful 16,700 square foot area over-looking the Thames opposite Canary Wharf, and is less than a five-minute walk from North Greenwich underground station. It will include a full-scale German fun fair and an outdoor beer garden with genuine wooden Alpine huts, transported from Germany for the month long event. There will be food stalls selling traditional Bavarian cuisine including Haxn (pork knuckles), Leberkas (beef/pork loaf), Sauerkraut, and of course the world-famous Bratwurst sausages. In the main beer hall there will be live entertainment every day with famous Oktoberfest bands from Munich as well as modern pop acts and DJs that will run through the evening. Over 40 expert Bavarian waitresses in traditional costumes will be brought in to serve the guests and can carry up to 10 steins of beer at one time. Tickets start from £10 for general admission to the beer hall event but there are cheaper tickets that allow access to only the funfair for £5. VIP tables in a separate area are also available.
