OKTOBERFEST will return to Weymouth for the first time in two years.

The organisers - West Dorset Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) - have announced the festival will take place on Friday, October 7 and Saturday, October 8.

Weymouth Oktoberfest is now in its 11th year at the Weymouth Pavilion - to be held in the Ocean Room - and will showcase more than 60 cask ales and ciders.

Rich Gabe, CAMRA bar manager and co-organiser, said: ”This year as a mark of respect to how our Dorset breweries coped with the pandemic and to show our continuing support to our amazing award-winning brewers, it was time to showcase their finest beers and ciders.

“We intend to have beer from every Dorset brewery that currently and regularly brews cask ale. This will be a golden opportunity for Dorset brewers to be creative and highlight their best brews - it’s time to raise a glass and drink Dorset.”

Tickets are on sale at camrawdorset.org.uk and are priced at £11 per session.
