Portsmouth has been twinned with Duisburg since 1950 and is the second oldest Anglo-German twinning.

Once again the Guildhall Square will be transformed in to a weekend of traditional Bavarian bash! Bring on the bier – 30,000 litres to be precise! Top up your stein and step inside the 50 Metre Bier tent and prepare to be entertained – Bavarian style!

From traditional folk to ‘Oompop’ expect foot stomping, table bashing and hearty singing galore. Grab some traditional German grub from the outdoor food court as you raise your steins at Oktoberfest Portsmouth!

Oktoberfest began in 1810 to celebrate the marriage of Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Sace-Hildburghausen.  The royal newlyweds deemed the party so great that they wanted to repeat it every year and so Oktoberfest has been celebrated in Munich every fall since then.
