Oktoberfest at The Passenger Shed 5th and 6th October 2018

Posted on: 12 Jun 2018

Everyone’s favourite Bavarian festival will return to Bristol for a weekend of lederhosen, bratwurst and beer on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th October 2018




That’s right - the world famous Oktoberfest is making its way to The Passenger Shed this October to host its annual weekend of Germanic debauchery. The event will give you the chance to don a dirndl and frolick to your heart’s content whilst enjoying traditional Bavarian food, drink and live music.

A selection of draft German beers will be served (solely in one litre steins of course!) with bottled German beer, cider, wine and shots also available. Food will include traditional German sausages, bratwurst, pretzels and more. 


Entertainment will be provided by Um Pah band The Bavarian Strollers, who currently have permanent residencies at The Original Bierkeller in Sheffield and Bierschenke in London. They’ll be playing their own unique brand of Oom-Pop, which is sure to have you dancing, clapping and causing all sorts of raucous!

Early bird tickets are available until the 30th June, but there are a limited number so snap them up now whilst you still can!


VIP tickets are also available, giving you access to the VIP area, best seats in the house and queue jump, as well as a free goodie bag on arrival, free food tokens and complimentary shots. 


Tickets are available on the door but last year they sold out well in advance, so it’s best to book in advance to avoid being disappointed closer to the time - this is one you won’t want to miss! 


Oktoberfest will be at The Passenger Shed, Brunel’s Old Station, Bristol, BS1 6QH
