There will be a giant beer tent, live Bavarian-style bands performing, fancy dress, two pint steins, a large selection of traditional German food and even more.

Tickets purchased for 2020 will be valid for the event in October, the organisers have said.

Oktoberfest was launched in 2016 and for the first two years took place in Guildhall Square before moving to Castle Fields in Southsea for the 2018 edition.

There will be two sessions on October 30 – one from noon until 5pm and then from 6pm to 11pm.

Tickets for Oktoberfest 2021 are on sale now and can be purchased here.
