Gangs of Birmingham is an international role playing event set in an alternate version of 1920 Birmingham, run at the Black Country Living History Museum just outside Birmingham.
In the aftermath of the Great War, five gangs have formed and occupied areas of the city, competing over money, control, and class rivalries. The city hasn’t descended into anarchy, though, and there are many decent people still trying to live an honest life. The rising tides of labor organizing and the Women’s Rights movements mean that everyone has something to fight for.
No one wants to share riches or status, and the only rule anyone knows is fear. It’s only a matter of time before the conflict between the gangs floods with the streets with the blood of young Brummies.
A Gang Member ticket means you will be playing a character who is part of one of the organized gangs. These are the majority of roles in the game.
A Citizen ticket means you are playing an ordinary Birmingham inhabitant, socially connected to gang members but trying to live a normal life. You might also at some point during the event be asked by the organizers to play a special character for a short scene, such as a mass police action or a labor strike.
You can pay all at once, or you can pay in three lumps, to make it easier to spread out the expenditure.
- Buying the 1st lump secures you a place at the larp.
- The 2nd lump must be paid at least four months before the larp.
- The 3rd lump must be paid at least two months before the larp.
- This means that if you sign up less than four months before the larp, you need to pay both the 1st lump and the 2nd lump ticket immediately.
- If you sign up less than two months before the larp, just choose ”pay all at once”
- You can also buy 1 Bring a Friend ticket, but please note that it is only available when you are purchasing a normal ticket, and is meant for you to have the option of bringing a friend with you who is new to Dziobak larps.
Please do not pay for 2nd or 3rd lump without having first paid for the 1st lump, your ticket will not be valid if you do so.
You are of course very welcome to pay everything at once, which gives a (roughly) 10% discount. This saves you money and makes our lives easier!
AGE LIMIT: event is only for participants who are over 18 years old.
