An Oktoberfest-style German beer festival is coming to Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket in west Suffolk this month.

Frühlingsfest, organised by Deutschfest UK, will look to bring "the authentic Germany festival experience" to the towns.

According to Deutschfest UK, the event has teamed up with a German brewery to bring a "selection of the finest Frühlingsfest beer".

There will also be traditional street food, like bratwurst, and live entertainment set amongst Bavarian 'biergarten' inspired decor.

The Spring Festival is a tradition that originates from Stuttgart and, like its autumnal counterpart Oktoberfest, is an annual fair celebrating German culture and heritage.
