On Location will be played and organized in English, and you will need to have a conversational level of English to take part.

The characters can come from the UK, or elsewhere in Europe, or further afield, as you wish – you will decide your own character’s origins. So the use of bits of non-English languages for character colour is perfectly OK, as long as you make sure that all significant interactions take place in English.


You will mostly be sleeping in single bunks in comfortable shared rooms, on the ground floor. There are a small number of rooms with conventional beds, which will be assigned to participants on the basis of physical needs. Showers and bathrooms are communal and plentiful.


Delicious cooked meals, prepared by dedicated and experienced caterers, will be provided throughout On Location. We will meet your dietary requirements/exclusions.


The ticket price for participating in On Location 2019 has not yet been set. It will definitely be less than last time, though, when it cost £220. This covered accommodation for the three nights, and all food and drink during the larp. People could if they wished pay £275 instead – this helped to subsidize a place for a larper who was on a low income, or who otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford the ticket. These subsidized tickets cost £110, but their numbers were limited according to the amount of £275 tickets that were bought.


We will require you to bring your own costume, as appropriate to your character.


You are welcome to bring any props that you like, for your character. We will supply any props that are necessary for the larp.
