This will be the first time the legendary German event is held in the capital. Oktoberfest London is opening in partnership with Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr, Munich’s most famous beer brands, who both run fantastic tents at the event over there, and you can grab tickets here.

Oktoberfest in Munich has been running for over 200 years, since the wedding in 1810 of Crown King Ludwig and Queen Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen, and more than 6.9 million steins of beer are consumed there every year.
