The huge beer tents for Shropshire Oktoberfest are due to return to Shrewsbury’s Quarry Park on Friday 4 to Saturday 5 October. The Shropshire Festivals team have organised brewers from the region and beyond to serve up around 150 real ales. There will also be numerous bars serving up lager, cider and perry, plus a prosecco parlour, gin den, and wine bar, which can all be mopped up with a vast array of street food.
The festival’s comedy club will be compered by Chris Brooker. He will be joined by Stephen Carlin’s deadpan wit, Keith Carter’s character comedy, Vince Atta and his multi-track looper creating on-the-spot comic pieces, and Gordon Southern, who headlines following huge success on the international comedy circuit.
The music line-up includes the Paprika Blues Band, Custard Connection, the Follicles, Vorsprung Durch Oompah, Dirty Rockin’ Scoundrels and Bouncing Betty.
