Welcome to the Cambridge Larp Society Website!

Cambridge Larp Society (CLS) is a University of Cambridge society which organises regular Live Action Role-Playing (larp) events. Larp is a type of role-play where participants physically portray their characters. There are many different kinds of larp, taking place in wide variety of settings, ranging from fantasy and sci-fi to modern day. To find out more about larp, visit our FAQ.

CLS runs a continuing game over the course of the year, meeting once or twice a week for socialising and adventuring together in a world unlike our own. We also run a number of other events, including one-shot larps, discussion groups, costume-making sessions, and socials. Participation is open to everyone, not just members of the university, and we welcome new members at any point in the year.

More information about events we run can be found here, and you can contact us here.

You can sign up to the mailing list here, or email the exec if you don't have university access.

Our Current Game

This year's game is Obscura, a fantasy game of discovery, intrigue and struggle against the odds where magic and science collide.

The second interactive of Obscura is on Friday 25th October at 7pm at the Unitarian Church Hall.

The next linear will be on Grantchester Meadows on Saturday 26th October at 13:00. This will be a pair of linears, one high combat one low combat, aimed at more experienced players.
