On Sunday, after the down-town Nicosia roads are hopefully open again after the Cyprus Rally, the Goethe Institute will host its traditional beer festival Oktoberfest Light.
The beer-filled event, organised by the Cyprus-German Cultural Association, will give us all a chance to taste a large range of German beers, enjoy German traditional delicacies – such as those well-known sausages, pork shank and German potato salad.
Of course a festival just isn’t a festival without music, and that part of the festivities will be completed by a live performance by the Windcraft Band.
The band, specialising in trumpets, French horns, trombones, tubas and any other wind instruments that the musicians can get their hands on, stems from the Windcraft Music Centre in Nicosia, where a team of qualified and experienced teachers pass on their knowledge to future musicians.
The band is well-known for its range of musical styles, from performing classical pieces, to the jazz genre, to folk music.
The festival will take place in the garden of the Goethe Institute and will run from 4pm until 11pm.
