Oomph Pha, Oomph Pha, stick it up yer Jumpha.
Last year I was asked, by many, if we would be having another Oktoberfest night. Sadly I had to inform them that it wasn’t possible, for a number of reasons, mainly problems in booking a band.
This year we have another problem, Oktoberfest night falls into the Rugby World Cup period.
However, nil desperandum, as they say in down town Ancient Rome. The fates have conspired in our favour and we are pleased to announce that on Saturday 12th September, a very auspicious date in history, Eccles RFC will be hosting a Bavarian Night in conjunction with the Eccles Brass Band.
This will be primarily a fund raiser for the band, therefore there will be a door charge of £5 per person. For this you will get; a multi-piece band playing traditional Bavarian Volk Music, A Range of Oktoberfest Beers, Drinking Games organised by the Band Fuhrer, Prizes for the best (appropriate) fancy dress, and if you’re all very good, when the band is finished, a sing-a-long to The Sound of Music. Just don’t mention the war.
