Did you know the annual Oktoberfest is a celebration of the marriage between Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, which occurred in Munich 185 years ago? Probably not. To Londoners, Oktoberfest is more an elaborate excuse to drink tonnes of beer, rather than a century-old celebration of the momentous matrimony between two Germans.
No matter the reason, the world has embraced Germany’s favourite autumn festival, and Flat Iron Square
will be putting on a four-day feast for the occasion. Head on down to London Bridge
between 3 and 6 October, where you can immerse yourself in some Bavarian fun. This involves music, food, and most importantly, lots and lots of beer.
There will be German-themed live entertainment, games and food (hello, sauerkraut!) and you’re encouraged to dress the part. So time to fish out that old lederhosen from the cupboard and Schuhplattler
your way down to Flat Iron Square
With tickets only £10pp (this includes a beer on arrival), this is a real bavargain (see what we did there?). Evening parties will be put on every night, as well as a day-time session on the Saturday.
