Bedford’s annual German beer fest is getting ready to open its doors for the eighth time.

The Harpur Suite will transform into a German bier keller for the Bedford Bamberg Spring Fest.

The event takes place on Friday, May 1, and Saturday, May 2, with a wide selection of German beers, wine and schnapps on offer, including Beers brewed in Bamberg, Bedford’s twin town.

For those who don’t drink, there will be a German barbecue, live music and authentic beer hall anthems from German band, Dom Bosco.

Spring Fest is one of the most popular events celebrated on the Corn Exchange calendar, and attracts hundreds of people throughout the weekend.

Bedford’s Spring Fest Event began in 2008 to highlight Bedford’s twinning with the German town of Bamberg; both towns being famous for their beer brewing.
