Norwich’s annual Oktoberfest has become the latest event to announce it will not be going ahead this year.

In a statement, organisers wrote: “It is with this in mind that we have taken this inevitable decision. The pandemic has been truly devastating for so many people, including ourselves in the event industry, and we sincerely thank you for your continued support and patience during this difficult time for us all.”

All tickets will be transferred to the new date.

Organisers added: “We can promise it will be bigger and better than ever. I’m sure we all agree that a night at the oompah is what we could all do with right now.”

Anyone who cannot attend next year’s event are asked to email ticketingassistance@oktoberfestuk.co.uk by September 2.
