Swindon gets ready for German Beer Fest

Posted on 21st February 2013

The town of Swindon is getting ready for a celebration of great food and drink, with the arrival of a fantastic German Beer Fest making for a great night out for anyone taking their Wiltshire cottage holidays soon.

Beer Festival

Due to take place at the Music Entertainment Cultural Arena (MECA) on March 23rd, this unique event will allow guests to experience all the fine produce and fun that comes with this traditional spectacle, all without leaving one of the most friendly and beautiful counties in the UK.

With tickets for the occasion costing just £10, those who come along are sure to appreciate not just the famously fine continental beer that will be available, but also the rest of the entertainment that has been confirmed to appear over the course of the evening, creating a truly international evening out to remember.

One of the country’s leading oompah bands, Alpine Stompers, have already been booked up to provide fitting musical accompaniment, along with a DJ for when the party really gets going later in the evening. Various other attractions will ensure this is one event you will not forget in a hurry, including a magic performer, a photographer, the ales being served by ‘madchens’ in traditional dress, and some delicious traditional sausages and pretzels.

Some of the many drinks that have already been confirmed for sale on the evening include the popular brews Erdine Weissbrau, Fischer Helles and Jagermeister, as well as a selection of top quality wine and soft drinks and a surprise guest beer.

The Swindon German Beer Fest is just one of a wide selection of events that can be enjoyed by those planning on staying at one of the cosy and secluded holiday cottages in Wiltshire over the spring months, which give you an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding glorious countryside or venture into the nearby towns.
