Why go to Munich to experience the famous Oktoberfest? For the sixth year in a row, the Bavarian Beerhouse in London is organising its own Oktoberfest, featuring Bavarian-style fun, entertainment and live music. It may well involve sausages!

Kicking off on Thursday, 17th September 2009, this is an authentic slice of Oktoberfest action in the heart of the capital. For seven weeks the Bavarian Beerhouse will be transformed into a haven of beer, live entertainment and partying.
