All the LARP at our weekend with CanTeen and the IGA

In early spring, Helium teamed up with CanTeen, the national young people’s cancer support group, for a fantasy adventure live action role-playing game (LARP) hosted by Hudson and Stephen from the Irish Games Association and members of the Irish gaming community.

This immersive performance event at All Hallows in Drumcondra saw young CanTeen members take on the role of outlanders, arriving in a foreign land where they had to learn the arts of healing, sorcery and the ways of the warrior. Following an action-packed training day on Saturday, the exposure of a traitor in the ranks led to a battle for the kingdom on Sunday.

Thank you to Stephen and Hudson for devising and hosting the LARP and to all the volunteer ‘monsters’ for taking part. Thanks also to members of the Irish gaming community who lent kit and weaponry.

This event has been funded by the Irish Games Association – Helium Arts’ 2016 charity partner – with support from CanTeen Ireland.
