Oval Space Announces Oktoberfest Celebrations
Have you ever been absolutely certain you know something only to find out you’ve been totally wrong, since like forever? We know we have. We remember being totally taken aback by the fact that polo players – you know, those posh people who charge around on horses – don’t hit the ball with the end of the mallets but rather the side and that enormity wasn’t a synonym of huge or enormous. Thus you can imagine our surprise in finding out that Oktoberfest actually starts in September. Mind blowing stuff eh?
Well, armed with a new festival to celebrate this Autumn we quickly looked at jumping on a flight to Munich only to see that at the current exchange rate, the entire office would have to club together for one of us to make our over to Deutschland. Luckily for us however, our good friends over at Oval Space have a covered, converting the East London venue into a German beer hall to bring a taste of Bavaria to Bethnal Green.
Promising the full Oktoberfest experience – we’re expecting a collection of rich foaming steins and delicious schnitzel – the soundtrack will be provided by the borough’s Hackney Colliery Band; with a unique mix of brass and beats set to get us loosening those lederhosen and get on the dance floor.
Running from the 28th of September until October 9th, you can find more details of what’s on offer at www.oktoberfest-east.com.
See you there!
