GET ready to loosen your lederhosen this weekend for the town’s third annual Bournevaria – Oktoberfest.

The BIC Solent Hall will be transformed into an Alpine haven serving German beer and food with a live band.

“We’re bringing a taste of Munich to Bournemouth and we’ve got more beers than ever before,” said a spokesman.

“On draught we’ll have Furstenberg Export, Erdinger Weissbier, Riegeler Pils and West Heidi-Weisse. Plus we’ll have bottles of Krombacher and cans of Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse.

“We’ll also be serving up German inspired food too, including Bockwurst sausage with sauerkraut and soft sea salted pretzels served with either a chocolate or mustard dip.”

Sessions are at 8pm on October 19 or 12.30pm and 7pm on Saturday, October 20. Tickets £10.50, include a Bournevaria souvenir glass and 50 per cent off the first pint.
