About the larp

Newspaper Headline

The Millennium Dome was raided earlier today by an intrepid armed gang, who used a JCB to break in and steal the De Beers diamonds worth an estimated 220 million pounds. They escaped by speedboat up the Thames.

If you have any information as to their whereabouts call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The governor Mr Jackson told you to come to meet him early at the lock up, because you’re the only one he trusts, but when you got there he was brown bread. You’ve got just three questions. Who killed him, who will take over the gang, and most importantly where’s the bloody loot?!

Borrowing heavily from the universe of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Layercake and Snatch, this short and potentially rather silly game gives you the chance to release your inner East London Gangster.

WARNING – there may well be character death in this game. Shooters’ll be provided by the management. Players must be over 18.
