Folk band and London Views


This October, Severndroog castle will be hosting its very own Octoberfest showcasing local craft beers and serving up BBQ German sausages.​



We invite you to join us at the only place in the city you can enjoy a chilled beer in a Castle surrounded by ancient woodland. Sit back and relax in the twilight, taste a range of craft beers and feast on barbequed food, all whilst listening to live folk music from local Eltham folk band Pytchwood and The Gillies.



It's a great evening to get to know the local brews and make the most of this picturesque time of year, surrounded by autumn leaves and folk songs. Should you wish to make the most of your experience, included with your entry ticket is access to our viewing platform, so you can take in our spectacular 360 views of London and the breath-taking sunsets. Looking westward over the city on a clear day you can experience perfect sunsets. The sunset will be at 18:30 at that time of year so grab the early tickets for the sunset view or book later tickets to enjoy the view by night.

Pytchwood (the original name) started off as a two-person band with members Dave Kenningham and Zahira Al-Zahira, in August 2011, before more recently adding on two extra members, now calling themselves, Pytchwood & The Gillies. They have performed at many festivals, social events and folk clubs and will endeavour to create a unique experience for the listener.



Beers, wines, fresh food and soft drinks will be available for purchase from our catering partner, Terrace Tearoom, all evening.


Given the time of year, this event will most likely be held indoors. Weather permitting, we will be extending the festivities to the Courtyard also.
