London couldn't be seen to be too similar to Munich, even when it's emulating Munich's famous beer halls, complete with Paulaner beer served in steins by women with plats called Heidi – so instead of calling their October festival of beer and other things Bavarian, Oktoberfest, they like to call it Bierfest. It's still held in October, mind.

The Main Hall of Old Billingsgate Market is morphed into a Bavarian Beer Hall, with all the trimmings of food, entertainment and drink. It's a corporate type of event though, everyone sits at the same time and platters of food come round twice, and it's not really open to the general public to join in.
