Hofmeister Helles, the multi-award winning Bavarian beer, is the main beer sponsor of Oktoberfest at Tonbridge Angels Football Club [Longmead Stadium, Darenth Avenue, Tonbridge, TN10 3JF] on Saturday 12 October 2019 from 6.30pm – 11.30pm.

For the first time, Oktoberfest is coming to Tonbridge Angels’ home. Experience the best of this Bavarian tradition, with steins overflowing with Hofmeister Helles, Jake’s Cider, delicious German Bratwurst and pulled pork supplied by Hayward’s Butchers, and of course classic Oktoberfest entertainment provided by the London Oompah Band. There will be a few modern twists on tradition with new exclusive Hofmeister Cocktails served by the Verdigris, Tonbridge team. Following the London Oompah Band, Mr Deluxx will be taking the festivities into the night with a DJ and sax set.

Charlotte Williams, Director of Salt Projects Ltd, said: “The wait is over! I am delighted that we are bringing Oktoberfest to Tonbridge Angels and the stars have definitely aligned, with Hofmeister as our main sponsor – a great match. Watch this space for many more events in the area.”

Richard Longhurst, co-founder of Hofmeister, said: “I love Oktoberfest and I am so excited that Hofmeister can sponsor the very first Oktoberfest in Tonbridge. With me living down the road and it being so local to our UK Headquarters, we had to make this happen! It will be a true Bavarian experience and Hofmeister Helles is the perfect beer sponsor for this – a truly authentic Bavarian beer.”
