Braewelth: School of Magic

Our aim is to create and weave the stories of our students and staff together over a weekend of shenanigans, fun and debauchery.

What's it all about?

School of Magic is an adventurous, slice of life LARP, that delves into the lives of the students at Braewelth, School of Magic.

This game is made for first time players and veterans who are looking for a light-hearted game.

School of Magic is designed for 20 players and 15 crew members making it less intimidating for new people wanting to give LARP a try in a familiar and well loved world setting.

In this game players are students at Braewelth, the premier wizarding school in New Zealand. It is comprised of four houses like other traditional schools of it's kind.

At the game you will be sorted into a house when you arrive at the opening ceremony (based on a questionnaire you fill out before the game) . At Braewelth students are sorted in years 1, 3 and 7 to reflect the changes you make as you grow.

Crew members will be cast as teachers and given a role to play over the weekend as well as several other small parts through out the game.

Please note that all tickets include the following:


We typically rent an entire camp out for the weekend. This includes use of facilities (kitchen, toilets, showers), a bed for each person, and use of indoor spaces such as a main hall or meeting rooms. 

Participants share bunk rooms (usually 4-6 people per room with bunk beds), though players and crew usually bunk separately from each other so they can have out-of-character spaces in which they can freely talk without spoiling game content. Please get in touch if there is someone you would like to bunk with (we can accommodate crew and players bunking together), we make an effort to make sure everyone is comfortable (ie, bunking with your friends or partner(s))
