To bring the spirit of the German Carnival season to London, The Bavarian Beerhouse Old Street is hosting a big Carnival party and are giving away a table for ten to one lucky TNT reader. 

While the British love fancy dress parties all year round, Germans tend to wear costumes only during the Carnival season. To bring the Carnival spirit to London, Bavarian Beerhouse Old Street is organising a traditional “Carnival Fancy Dress Party”, which takes place on Saturday, 5th March 2011. Be prepared for an evening full of imaginative outfits, a DJ playing cheesy Euro trash, dancing and a general atmosphere of boisterous fun.

Fancy dress is a big part of the Carnival in Cologne – every year, the city parade attracts millions of guests who celebrate and dance in the streets. In true Carnival spirit, guests at the Bavarian Beerhouse will be encouraged to dress as outrageously as possible for the night. Whether you’re a pirate, a cowboy or a little devil, all fancy dress will be welcome. The best costume will win a surprise prize.

Bavarian Beerhouse’s Events Manager Hanna Essinger said: “Carnival is a time in the year when people don costumes, party and enjoy them. We like to keep this tradition alive and bring the Carnival spirit to London.”

Where: Bavarian Beerhouse Old Street, 190 City Road, London EC1V 2QH. The nearest tube station is Old Street (Exit 8). 
When: Saturday, 5th March
2011, starting at 7pm. 

Single tickets for Carnival are available at £10, and a table for 10 at £90. Tickets include a welcome drink, weird carnival decoration, participation in the “Best Carnival Costume 2011 Awards” and Bavarian Beerhouse staff in fancy dress. The evening starts at 7pm and ends at 1am. Tickets can be booked on or by calling Bavarian Beerhouse Hotline 0844 330 2005.
