The UK's biggest Oktoberfest has announced a return to Ipswich after a hugely popular event in 2023.

Oktoberfest Ipswich is set to return to Christchurch Park from Friday, October 11 to Saturday, October 12.

Promising to be even bigger and better than last year, the event is set to host more than 6,000 people in three sessions over the two days. 

Last year, a vast blue marquee was pitched in Christchurch Park for the event which was attended by thousands of people - some even dressed up in lederhosen.

Each session grants visitors access to the event for between four and five hours of drinking beer from a stein and dancing on the table.

Oompah band, The Bavarian Strollers, have also announced that they will be performing at the event for the second year running. 

What's more, those who purchase tickets in January can make the most of an early bird offer with a big discount, with prices starting at £7.50 for entry.
