Warrington Oktoberfest is back, and it will be held once again at Warrington's Parr Hall later this year.

The event is organised by Rotary Warrington, with all profits from the festival going to good causes.

A must-visit for beer aficionados, the festival will include dozens of speciality brews, imported ales, and drinks of varying strengths and tastes.

There will also be a gin and fizz bar, a cider bar, and a driver's bar available during the event, too.

Warrington Oktoberfest will be held at Parr Hall between October 12-14.

There will be traditional Oktoberfest-style food available throughout the event, which is set to be supplied by Warrington's 'best for burgers 2023' Cafe at the End of the Universe.

Speaking to the Warrington Guardian, one of the event's organisers - Samantha Bridger - said that the whole group has been 'blown away' by the support provided by sponsors of the event.

She said: "All our sponsors are amazing, and they help with everything from the set up, to equipment, money, and even the racking used for beer kegs."

In terms of ticket costs, Samantha said: "We are delighted to say that tickets are £10, which we think is phenomenally cheap, and we're selling them in advance - which includes a small booking fee.

"Tickets will be available on the door, too, if we have any left."

There will be live music performed across the event, with the following bands playing across the festival:

  • The Pink Pumps
  • Fairchild Robinson
  • The Red River Band

It has also been announced that drinks can be purchased via a token system.

For any cask ale that is marked at less than five per cent alcohol content, it costs one green token per half pint.

Ales marked as stronger than five per cent cost one yellow token per half pint.

No-alcohol drinks, plus prosecco and gins are marked at costing one yellow token.

For £10, attendees will receive five green tokens, or 11 tokens for £20.

In terms of yellow tokens, it will be four tokens for £10, or nine tokens for £20.

Samantha explained that all profits from the event go to charity, with Warrington Rotary raising around £325,000 for charity since it began in 1997.

She added: "The event is staffed by volunteers for free; they're the unsung heroes collecting glasses and working on the bars.

"In organising the event we get a lot of help from the rotary club members."
