THE best of German en­ter­tain­ment will come to South­port this month as the town cen­tre hosts a spe­cial Ok­to­ber­fest event.

Event spe­cial­ist Elite Mar­quees is host­ing the event to al­low hun­dreds to en­joy German beers, bratwurst and live mu­sic.

South­port Ok­to­ber­fest will take place in the Town Hall Gar­dens and is be­ing or­gan­ised in con­junc­tion with gin bar Rem­edy.

Head­lin­ing the event will be the Amaz­ing Bavar­ian Stom­pers, a lead­ing UK oom­pah band and res­i­dent band at the Leeds Bierkeller.

Also on of­fer at the event, which in­volves three ses­sions on Oc­to­ber 19-20, will be a wide se­lec­tion of German wines and gins.

As with pre­vi­ous gin fes­ti­val events held by Rem­edy, five-drink to­kens will be on sale.

It will be the first Ok­to­ber­fest event that Elite Mar­quees has or­gan­ised but owner Mark Dil­ley is con­fi­dent it can be­come an an­nual event in the South­port cal­en­dar.

He said: “We’ve been or­gan­is­ing events for 15 years so we’re con­fi­dent we can put on some­thing peo­ple will love.

“We’re putting on the best en­ter­tain­ment and there’ll be a re­ally good se­lec­tion of drinks.

“My main aim is to make this an event that peo­ple are dy­ing to get back to.”

Tick­ets are on sale now and, with a lim­ited num­ber avail­able for each ses­sion.

En­try costs £20 per per­son, in­clud­ing the beer.

The three ses­sions take place at 6pm-11pm on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 19 and 12pm-5pm and 6pm11pm on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 20.
