Welcome to the Cambridge Larp Society Website!

Cambridge Larp Society (CLS) 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. We're associated with the University of Cambridge, but happily accept non-university members.

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 also find us on our facebook group.

Members of the University can sign up to the mailing list here; otherwise email the exec to be added.

Our Current Game

Unusual Haunts has finished!

Our next game is Norse Angels, a high fantasy game of godlings facing Ragnarok, starting in October 2024. You can ask questions about it on the game's discord server.

The society is now on hiatus until the start of the next academic year in October, when we'll be playing a new game, Norse Angels.

We'll be at the 2024 Cambridge University Fresher's Fair, followed by an out of character meet and greet on Friday the 11th October, location TBD.
