Milton Keynes Biergarten wants to put some oom-pah into your weekend!

MK Biergarten and York House have teamed up to offer everyone a chance to quench their thirsts and enjoy the Oktoberfest experience on a larger scale this Saturday (October 29).

Special beers imported from Germany, giant pretzels, German and other vegetarian food, traditionally-attired bar staff and a brass band will be giving the occasion some oom-pahs.

In the main room of York House, staff will be serving Paulaner Oktoberfestbier and Paulaner Weissbier from four taps - the first mentioned is only available at this time of the year, and was originally brewed to commemorate the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig the First to Princess Therese of Sanchsen-Hidburghausen, way back in 1810!

It was that very event that gave birth to the whole Oktoberfest tradition, and organisers of this event are doing their best to keep things as authentic as possible.

"We are delighted to assemble such a fantastic range of local businesses at this wonderful German-style event," said Franzi Florack, manager of the Biergarten.

"Oktoberfest is a time of community, dressing up in your finest and celebrating the best food and drink Bavaria has to offer."

Split with a fiver on the doors this Saturday (October 29) and you'll get access to all the entertainment.  You'll get a specially-engraved souvenir glass too.

Anyone showing up in traditional dress will shave two quid from the entry price.

Families are welcome during the day but it’s over-18s only after 8pm.
