It's just over two weeks till we are running our event and fundraiser for Campfire Convention. We'd love to see all of you at this first ever London Beacon event, timed to celebrate the solstice.
We'd love to physically meet as many of you as possible at this event making real life connections and meeting you face to face. A Solstice Experience is inspired by the values and ethos of Campfire Convention and is primarily an experience about connection and the joys of being human.
It's also an opportunity for us to gather and support Campfire and to see how together we can make a difference in our community.
We'd love this event to sell out, so please bring friends, share the event on social media but most importantly come and get involved!
We're so looking forward to running this larp event for you.
Nina and I were catching up this morning and discussing what an incredible opportunity it is to run an event in such a unique location.
Lauderdale House is such a stunning venue and they have been so incredibly generous in giving us the entire house and garden to use exclusively for the evening. We are planning to run the larp in the grounds of the house (and we have an indoor option should the weather not be playing ball).
Some of the topics we will be exploring with you on this event is the wonder of sensory experience; the simple delight in watching a sunset or smelling flowers and just being. The joy of joining with one-another in celebration of being human. The magic of exploring connection through ritual, embodied play.
If you've never played a larp before and are unsure about participating, then you can choose to be an audience member. There's no pressure to do or to be anything other than yourself. We will be running a workshop for you to familiarise yourself with the mechanics of the larp and how you interact with the players will be up to you.
Whether you choose to be a player or an audience member both experiences will be equally valid.
We have 3 player places and 9 audience places available.
I'm delighted to be working alongside Campfire Convention, artist and larp designer Nina Runa Essendrop and with the very beautiful Lauderdale House in the middle of the stunning Waterlow Park in Highgate North London to create 'A Solstice Experience': a joy filled ritual celebration of the Summer Solstice.
