This year’s Shropshire Oktoberfest will see 200 real ales under one roof, alongside a lager bar, prosecco parlour, gin den and a rum shack. And to make the most of the autumn harvest, a new cider area will take centre stage at the festival, which runs from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 October. A Comedy Club will feature stars such as TV favourite Junior Simpson and Manchester funnyman Chris Brooker. Meanwhile, a fantastic line-up of music will include both traditional oompah sounds and the best local stars.
Organiser Beth Heath says the Sunday has been earmarked as a particularly family-friendly day: “We are making Sunday a family fun day and street food festival, so visitors can bring the family for Sunday lunch while they enjoy a beer and some great music.” Visit shropshireoktoberfest.co.uk for more information.
