Shropshire Oktoberfest is back

Shropshire Festivals are busy preparing for their sell out drinks’ festival in the Quarry, taking place this Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1.

Tickets have already sold out for the Chrisbeon VIP area on Saturday, with just a few VIP tickets remaining for Friday. Standard tickets are still available to purchase from

The huge beer tent will be filled with independent brewers, distillers, and local drinks producers, serving up over 150 ales, lager, cider, perry, wine, gin, rum, fizz and cocktails.

As well as locally made beers from breweries such as Wye Valley Brewery, Three Tuns Brewery and Stonehouse Brewery, there will be some German beer to quaff too. Those wanting something different to a traditional ale or cider can sample 25 gins from around the world at the Gindifferent stand or some locally handcrafted gin and cocktails from the award-winning Shropshire Distillery.

Fibre Heroes are sponsoring the live music stage, and reusable beer cups to reduce plastic waste. On both days the music line-up features lederhosen wearing, Oktoberfest favourite  Vorsprung Durch Oompah on the main stage, and shanty music power house Old Time Sailors in the Live Lounge.

Friday’s acts also include The Follicles, The Vertigo Band and Lost The Plot. The Saturday music line-up will deliver sets from Longden Calling, Microbaby, Five o’clock Hero, Something 4 The Weekend, Chasing August, The Dirty Rockin Scoundrels, Groove Dynamite, and Ego Friendly. The stage will be hosted by BBC Radio Shropshire’s Paul Shuttleworth.

On Saturday the Besblock Live Lounge will also host a stellar line-up of touring comedians. Taking to the stage is Britain’s Got Talent finalist Micky P Kerr, former English Comedian of the Year Josh Pugh, the highly regarded international act Gordon Southern and the master of mixing punchlines with unpredictable audience interaction Liam Pickford. Compere for the night will be stand up Luke Honnoraty, with his stories on life and embarrassing moments.
