October is here and that means it’s only days until the legendary Bavarian beer, bratwurst and music festival, Oktoberfest, returns to Leeds promising to be bigger, bolder and better than ever.

The event which can be traced back to Munich in 1811, has become a staple on the city’s entertainment calendar since it debuted in 2015, and like many was forced into a hiatus last year as a result of the pandemic.

Speaking about the launch, Oktoberfest Leeds marketing manager, Lance Holden, said: “After a year away from our usual format, we can’t wait to return bigger and better than ever before for 2021!

“We’ll be taking over a new space in Leeds city centre, which is exciting, bringing the people of Yorkshire a whole load of German beer, bratwurst and Oompah music. Hopefully, we can make up for a lost year and have a fantastic four days of Oktoberfest celebrations.”

Guests attending can expect the festival’s signature brand of first-class German beers from brewery Ayinger, Currywurst’s from the famous Get Wurst and rousing, foot-stomping entertainment from the in-house Oompah and Brass band. Limited VIP tickets are available for those who want to really get stuck into the festivities a free stein, table service and a Bavarian hat to top it all off.
