Aberdeen Oktoberfest 2019
The organisers of the World Wide Oktoberfest tour have announced the official dates for Aberdeen Oktoberfest 2019. Their Queens Link venue will be hosting a vigorous party from TBA October. Oktoberfest is becoming a tradition of the city since it is the fourth year the people of Aberdeen celebrate this fun and merry festival.
The mood at our event is as good as the one in Munich.
, said Carsten Raun, Festival Director. One thing the Scottish and the German have in common is the joy of life with a nice beer, so Oktoberfest is a perfect place to meet.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Aberdeen Oktoberfest is celebrated in a big marque with a capacity of 950 seats. An Oompa band entertains guests all night with live music performances. Of course, it wouldn't feel right without traditional Lederhosen and Dirndl in which all of the service staff are dressed. The beer on offer, Bavarian Festbeer, is true German beer (ABV 5%) brewed according to German purity law. It is a dark golden lager with beautiful white foam and embraces a touch of sweetness and a strong yet slightly bitter aftertaste of the hops.
But Oktoberfest is much more than just beer. A delicious selection of German specialties is on offer. Guests can enjoy Schnitzel (deep-fried pork cutlet), Prezel (twist-knot bread), Hendel (grilled chicken) and Schweinebraten (roast pork). A vegetarian option is also available on request. On Sunday, a bratwurst-centered lunch is prepared for families to enjoy an interesting cultural experience.
Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
