You can experience a little bit of Germany in Swindon as Oktoberfest is set to come to the town.
For those who don’t know, Oktoberfest is a traditional event which takes place in the country each October.
It is hugely popular and has spread across the world. The events specialise in authentic Bavarian beer and food.
Visitors to Oktoberfest will find a giant outdoors bier tent, said to be one of the biggest in europe, where they can enjoy a two-pint beer from a traditional Oktoberfest stein.
Where is it?
Swindon is taking place within the The County Grounds in a huge Oktoberfest tent between Friday, October 20th and Saturday, October 21st.
