22nd October 2014
It’s becoming quite a tradition. For a few years now, Trinity 6th Formers and staff have taken to celebrating the famous German festival in their own style. Oktoberfest is the world's largest funfair, held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is a 16-day festival that every year attracts more than 6 million people from around the world. The Trinity version is, not surprisingly, a little more modest, and normally takes place on a Friday evening in October.
This year saw the Salle (our school hall) decorated in authentic style, with plenty of German fare to sustain the 50 or so students and staff through a lively evening’s entertainment of a pub-style quiz, themed challenges, team games and karaoke. There was a great atmosphere all evening, with some students and staff even dressing up in the famous lederhosen and ‘dirndl’ costumes. Bratwurst, German snacks and German sandwiches made from continental breads were served along with delicious freshly made Prezels, which had been specially made and shipped in from a genuine German bakery (Continental Crumbs German bakery in Chudleigh, if you are interested!). All were washed down with age-appropriate beverage, including German lagers and Weissbier, natürlich!
