Held in the Banking Hall, the festival will incorporate all the fun of Oktoberfest by featuring a selection of Bavarian beers and cocktails, as well as a diverse range of treats from Africa, Asia, The Americas and other parts of Europe.

Entertainment is to be provided by the Bavarian Stollers, who impressed crowds at Oktoberfest in 2017, as well as The Mariachis.
