Steins were at the ready last night as Norwich venue Open was transformed into a bierkeller for an Oktoberfest event.

Beer fans descended on the venue to get a taste of Bavarian food, drink, and entertainment - and it was all for a good cause as proceeds went back into the community work Open carries out in the city.

A spokesman for Norwich Open said: “Every penny of profit from Oktoberfest Norwich, enables us to fund activities for young people, giving the most disadvantaged the life skills, confidence to follow their passion or find meaningful work. Last year’s event raised over £10,000 and we are hoping to raise as much again this year.”

Open helps young people who have suffered from abuse, self-harm, low self-esteem, bullying and mental health issues.

The Oktoberfest event runs until October 13 and tickets are still available. To buy tickets visit the Open Norwich website or call the box office on 01603 763111.
