Berkhamsted Oktoberfest

Our autumn celebration of German culture is a popular event with the Berkhamsted community and an occasion when we celebrate the ties of friendship between Britain and Germany.

Previous Berkhamsted Oktoberfest events have included wine-tasting evenings, concerts of German music, including the complete organ works of J.S. Bach, and a performance of Handel’s Foundling Anthem at Ashylns School (celebrating the historic connection of Berkhamsted with the original Foundling Hospital).

There’s also our ever-popular Bayerisches Frühstück – a traditional Bavarian breakfast of Weißwurst (speciality white sausage) and beer enjoyed in the churchyard after our morning worship.

We hope you will come and join us for our next Oktoberfest – check the parish calendar for details. Prost!
