PRESTON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2014) - Oktoberfest may have originated in Munich, but the Preston Marriott Hotel has made the event its own. On 4 and 5 October 2014, Preston's locals and visitors alike are invited to attend the Broughton hotel's Oktoberfest celebration for beer, conviviality and philanthropy. Because while guests can look forward to a relaxing afternoon, they can also feel good knowing that a percentage of all proceeds will be donated to The Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Situated on 11 acres of gardens and woodland, the Preston Marriott Hotel provides an ideal backdrop to the Oktoberfest event. Few Preston hotels in Lancashire can match this property's natural elegance or scenic grounds, both of which are inherited from its tenure as a Victorian manor house.

Visitors, however, can indulge in all the beauty for a mere £5 admission fee, which also grants them an event programme and a commemorative tankard. Additionally, individuals and companies have the option to sponsor a beer barrel for £150 and capitalise on the festival's considerable exposure: Hundreds of visitors are expected to attend.

Once inside the event, guests will find themselves immersed in Oktoberfest culture. As many as 35 beers, featuring Lancashire ales like, Lancaster Red, Kirkby Lonsdale Tiffin Gold, and many more, will be on-hand, along with dancing, socialising and a general sense of Teutonic-inspired fun. The Live Band 'Duo' will provide live entertainment and there will also be a DJ and dancing in the evening. Visitors can raise their steins to good times on 4 October from noon until 11 p.m., and on 5 October from noon until 6 p.m.

While the festival encourages everyone to unwind, its other purpose -- to raise both funds and awareness for The Rosemere Cancer Foundation -- is just as important. The Rosemere Cancer Foundation provides financial assistance in purchasing equipment and facilities to benefit cancer patients in Lancashire and South Cumbria. It also provides funding for local research opportunities. The foundation and the Preston Marriott Hotel have worked closely together throughout the year, and Oktoberfest will be an important component of the partnership's ongoing success.

Whether guests arrive at this Preston accommodation to sample great beer, meet up with friends or support a good cause, they'll leave with the sense that making the world a better place has never been so much fun.
