Oktoberfest is just around the corner

Part of the country park will be transformed into a Bavarian beer garden complete with a 500-capacity Festzelt marquee filled with Bierkeller-style tables and benches.

There will also be a Wursthaus serving up traditional German sausages and waitresses and waiters dressed in Dirndl and Lederhosen.

The festivities get under way on Friday October 4 with a ceremonial keg-tapping followed by entertainment from oompah band Brasswurst and a DJ.
