A special event designed to put a Mancunian spin on the world-famous Bavarian beer festival has been confirmed for the Bowlers Exhibition Centre (BEC) this autumn.
Described as “Oktoberfest with a Mancunian twist”, Manctoberfest will be serving up steins of authentic German lagers to a northern soundtrack provided by local tribute acts for Oasis, The Stone Roses, New Order, Happy Mondays and The Courteeners .
German food market stalls will also be in attendance serving up festival-style grub throughout the event such as pretzels and bratwursts.
Hosted by JBM Music & Manchester Adored, Manctoberfest will see Trafford Park adorned in traditional Oktoberfest decorations over two days to “provide a taste of the most exciting Bavarian extravaganza.”
The event will run on October 1 and October 3 with Friday’s party beginning at 6pm and continuing deep into the night – finishing at 2am.
After a brief break, the event will return to the arena on Sunday afternoon from 2pm until 11pm.
As well as performances from tribute acts, Manctoberfest will also feature foot-stomping sets from Clint Boon and a live traditional Oompah Band.
