City centre venue OPEN Norwich, which is also the home of the OPEN Youth Trust is bringing Oktoberfest to Norwich in 2017. For two days in October the iconic building at the heart of Norwich on Bank Plain will be transformed into a German themed Bierkeller.

This two day event which is aptly named Oktoberfest Norwich or ON for short will bring authentic Bavarian beer, food and entertainment and the venue will become the home of one of the biggest celebrations ever seen in our Fine City.
 
Oktoberfest Norwich will be running on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th October 2017, with three sessions during this period. A Friday evening session will open the event before two further sessions on the Saturday afternoon and evening which will help bring the curtain down on the inaugural event.
 
Tickets are now on sale with an early bird price of £10 plus booking fee which will include a specially branded limited edition Oktoberfest Norwich Bavarian Beer Stein.
 
John Gordon-Saker, Chief Executive for OPEN said “Oktoberfest Norwich is one of a number of different style of events that we are lining up for 2017 to complement our eclectic programme of live music, awards ceremonies, banquets, conferences and other events. It’s a first for the City and we are delighted to be working in partnership with Radius Marketing, fellow finalists in this year’s EDP Business Awards.”
 
Food and drink vouchers will be available to purchase at the event so those attending can take full advantage of a range of authentic German beers and quality food - including the world famous Bavarian bratwurst. There will even be a Prosecco Lounge for those who would like a glass of fizz.
 
Entertainment will be provided by classic German Oom-pah and Euro-Pop bands and much, much more.  A limited number of VIP tickets with reserved stage side seating, complimentary food and drink, waitress table service and special Oktoberfest Norwich Stein are also available by contacting us directly on 01603 763111.
 
Money raised from the event will be donated to the Open Youth Trust which enables the charity to offer a diverse range of activities, most of which are free to attend, for young people aged from 7 to 25.
