The Bavarian-themed weekend is being held at St Peter’s by the Waterfront on September 15 and 16, where tasty beers served in traditional steins will be joined with street food stalls serving German foods such as sauerkraut and bratwurst.

An oompah band will also be on hand to make the weekend an authentic one.

With plans well underway, festival bosses have said the event will help support the Papworth Trust.

Festival organiser Greg Cooper said: “We are so thrilled to be working with local charitable partners Papworth Trust for Saints Oktoberfest 2017.

“It follows the event’s hugely successful debut last year which our customers absolutely loved.”
