The spirit of Munich will be rife on the Isle of Dogs when London Oktoberfest makes its return.

The worldwide tour will come to Millwall Park twice, with the first event from Thursday, September 29 to Sunday, October 2, and the second from Thursday, October 6 to Sunday, October 9.

Festival director Carsten Raun said: “The mood at our event is as good as the one in Munich.

“One thing the British and the Germans have in common is the joy of life with a nice beer, so Oktoberfest is a perfect place to meet.”

London Oktoberfest is celebrated in a giant marqee with a capacity of 3,300 seats, with a German band on hand to entertain the guests.

People will also be suitably adorned with traditional Lederhosen and Dirndl, including all of the service staff.

The festival beer is Bavarian Festbeer, a dark golden foamy lager brewed according to German purity law, providing a balance of sweetness with the bitter aftertaste of hops.

But there will be more than beer on offer, with a delicious selection of German specialities including Schnitzel, Pretzel, Händel and Schweinebraten. Vegetarian options are available on request.

A special lunch will be prepared for families on Sunday that promises an interesting cultural experience.

Entrance to the festival is free on Thursday and Sunday, £5 on Friday and £10 on Saturday.

The event at Millwall Park is open to people 18 and over apart from Sunday when children can go for free.
