The spirit of Oktoberfest will arrive in Great Yarmouth this weekend, thanks to The Empire's very first 'OktoberfeAst'.

The street food venue will showcase a variety of classic Bavarian dishes, such as CurryWurst made by vendor Rude Kitchen.

Fanny Adams catering will be offering slow braised beef with mushroom and bacon jam in a brioche bun, with a vegan schnitzel option also available.

Along with the food specials Lacons, a local brewery, has selected a range of imported beers for the celebration — including a peach infused lager.

Empire director, Jack Jay said the combination of food and celebration was key to making the venue's event a success.

The Empire, in Great Yarmouth, reopened in July this year and owner Jack Jay said the response has been "incredible".
