UPDATE 13/03/2020

It is with a large amount of sorrow and regret that we have to announce the cancellation of The Rites of Spring. 

We have considered as many scenarios as we possibly could, have racked our brains for alternatives, and failed to come up with a situation where this is not the responsible thing to do. This game has been a massive labour of love for us all, but no game, no matter how dear, can be worth the endangerment of its participants. Bringing together 130 people from around the globe seems foolhardy at this time, and we do not expect that the situation will have changed sufficiently by April to make it safe.

We wish we could welcome you to the island, but sadly, it is not to be.

What is The Rites of Spring?

The Rites of Spring (RoS) is a live action roleplaying game (larp) based on works of English Folk Horror. Participants will take on the roles of characters on Spring Island and act out those characters’ actions in response to other characters and organiser arranged stimuli. It is collaborative, not competitive, and together all participants create the story of Spring Island and its inhabitants.
