Oktoberfest is coming to Chiswick for five days in August. Festival goers will be able to enjoy an array of German beer, food and live music. The organisers have told local people that their German beer-festival on Acton Green Common will be highly organised after concerns being raised.
The festival will be based in a giant marquee on Acton Green with a capacity of 1500, all seated. German oompah music from a live band will stop at 2200 and the DJ will stop at 2230.
Local residences opposed to the festival taking place believe it could lead to anti-social behaviour and they say such an event is not suitable for a Conservation Area.
This will be the 100th Oktoberfest that will be held, preparation for the event will start on Monday, 8 August.
