This October, German Beer once again flows into the capital for the city’s own Bavarian style London Oktoberfest, the London Bierfest. A uniquely corporate occasion, this is an event like no other in the UK corporate calendar with huge German beer steins filled to the brim with German Oktober Beer served by strapping Helmuts and gorgeous Helgtas in traditional Bavarian costume. Live music fills the hall with an atmosphere of jollity and merriment. London’s Oktoberfest is the ideal opportunity to entertain clients the old fashioned way. This merry occasion is the perfect way to strengthen relationships with staff and clients, thanking them for their hard work and their custom by giving them an evening to remember. This corporate London Oktoberfest is the type of client entertainment of which Mad Men’s Don Draper would very much approve.
Oktoberfest Entertainment at the London Bierfest
Oktoberfest conjures up images of giant German beers and Lederhosen but this is just part of the rich experience of a German Beer Festival. A live oompah band is part of the entertainment and guests will enjoy traditional German food. Traditional Food at German beer festivals includes sausage such as Frankfurter and Knockwurst, Schnitzel and Saeurkraut, although those with less adventurous tastes will enjoy dishes such as roast pork and potato salad.
Lederhosen is by no means compulsory but guests can enjoy getting into the spirit with Heidi wigs and horned helmets.
The London Bierfest takes place in the famous Old Billingsgate Market. This grand Victorian building has been transformed into a magnificent venue and echoes the sound of live Bavarian entertainment and a fantastic atmosphere.
