BOOKINGS HAVE NOW CLOSED FOR 2019. We will be in touch shortly to confirm places.
The first step of the booking process is to register your interest, and choose whether you want to play a WAAF or RAF character. We don’t need any further character details at this stage.
At the end of February we will close the form and, from those who registered their interest, we will draw 40 WAAF players and 17 RAF players by ballot. This won’t be a completely blind draw, as we will aim for a mix of returning and new players. The results of the ballot will be announced by 14th March.
At that stage we’ll ask you to create your character concept. This is simple - just a short outline, three key words, and the character's greatest ambition, fear and regret. There's some notes on character creation here - if you're stuck, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Story Team will work with you to flesh those concepts out into living, breathing people from 1940. We'll also help you build connections with other characters before the event starts.
A note for the RAF
We ask RAF players to work on 2 character ideas before the event - a day pilot and a night pilot. Both characters will be equally embedded relationship wise, and there's no need to worry about two sets of kit - that's the beauty of uniforms. In the unlikely event that a player dies more than twice, we'll help you out on the day!
We recognise that some people are more or less able to afford expensive LARP tickets. You have the option to book a Patron ticket, which costs £50 more than a regular ticket. A Patron ticket is exactly the same as a regular ticket, except that it helps to subsidise a cheaper ticket for someone who might otherwise not be able to afford to attend.
Subsidised tickets are £50 cheaper than regular tickets. When booking, you have the option to book either:
Subsidised A: A subsidised ticket, or no booking if one isn’t available.
Subsidised B: A subsidised ticket, or a regular ticket if one isn’t available.
Each Patron ticket drawn in the ballot will allow one Subsidised ticket to be allocated, with Subsidised A tickets given priority.
We understand that there may be people (partners, lift-providers, etc) who you might want to link your booking to, so that either both/all of you play or neither/none of you do. You can enter the names of up to three other players you wish to make a Multiple Booking with. These people will be put into the ballot as a single entry and drawn together. Making a Multiple Booking will not change the probability of you being allocated a place, but it will avoid the possibility of some but not all of you receiving places.
Refunds & Cancellations
Refunds will only be issued if we are able to find a replacement player to take your place. Replacement players will come from our waiting list in strict order as drawn. You are welcome to suggest people apply to our waiting list, but they will not be guaranteed a place.
In the unlikely event that Wing and a Prayer is cancelled by the organisers, full refunds will be issued.
