Tickets on sale for Oktoberfest at Magna

18 August 2015

Tickets have gone on sale for the second annual Oktoberfest at Magna in Rotherham.

The event, thought to be the biggest of its kind in South Yorkshire, will feature German-themed food, continental lagers and two Oompah bands.

The lager will be served in pint-sized steins – or traditional German beer mugs, and there will be a prize of a case of champagne for the best Bavarian costume.

The two-day event will run from 6pm to midnight on Friday October 2 and Saturday October 3, with tickets starting at just £5.
For anyone who wants to leave the car at home there will be special buses running between Magna, Meadowhall and Rotherham town centre

John Silker, chief executive of Magna, said: “We’ve got a great venue here for parties. So why go to all the way to Munich when we have our very own Oktoberfest right here on our doorstep?

“Last year more than 2,000 people came over the two days and this year will be even bigger and better. Oktoberfest is now becoming part of the party calendar, much like our Christmas parties which draw in thousands each year.”

As well as the Oompah bands at Oktoberfest, there will be other live entertainment, a disco, party games and serving wenches.
Entry-only tickets are £5 on-line, with beer and food tokens available to buy on the night. A Bierkeller package is available for £25 in advance and includes entry, four pints of lager, a stein to keep and a meal. More details at or contact 01709 723118 or

Magna is housed in the former Templeborough steel works near junction 34 of the M1, near Meadowhall.

As well as being a corporate venue, which can cater for between five and 5,000 people, Magna is an award-winning visitor attraction. It also hosts exhibitions and regular school trips.
