If you want to join in the Oktoberfest fun this year in Berkshire, it’s important to pre-book your taxi travel. Just think; how many people will be out having fun taking part in the festivities. If you leave your taxi planning to the night and queue-up at a local taxi rank, you’ll likely be faced with large queues.
This year from the 11th to the 14th of October in Station Hill, Reading there will be a glorious celebration filled with German brew, bratwurst, and other Bavarian delicacies. On the Thursday things will begin with free entry to the Beer Tent with an Open Haus night which starts at 6pm and runs until 11pm. However, if you would like to guarantee yourself a seat, a pint of beer, and a bratwurst – tickets are available for just £10.
However, Oktoberfest really gets started on the Friday as the first major session starts Friday at 6pm. People attending the festival will be able to enjoy live music and other forms of entertainment. So gather your friends and enjoy in celebrations filled with live music, tasty food, and delicious beer.
