The two-day event runs until Saturday at the venue in Bank Plain, which has been transformed into a German-themed Bierkeller.

Tickets were already sold out ahead of the annual beer festival, with afternoon and evening sessions available, and there is authentic German beers and food to enjoy, including the world famous Bavarian bratwurst sausage.

The Oktoberfest tradition started in 1810 in Munich, Germany, to celebrate the marriage of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to the Saxon-Hildburghausen Princess Therese.

Since then, the event has spread across the world and sees thousands of people dress up in lederhosen and enjoy German beer and bratwurst every autumn.
