Larp Inn at Larp Con

Contrary to popular belief, Larp Inn is a small family business that was founded in 2009. We operate from a central warehouse in Telford, just off the M54. From this workshop, we ship all shapes and sizes of LARP kit to the UK and internationally.

We make leather and foam props in house, as well as selling a huge range of high-quality LARP brands from notable European manufacturers, such as Epic Armoury, Mytholon, Leonardo Carbone and Maskworld, as well as infamous UK prop makers such as Medlock Armouries, Light Armouries and Darkblade LARP. We also have a showroom where you can drop by to try out costume, feel the weight of a new LARP weapon and buy/order our goods. 

Our warehouse ships tonnes of goodies! There’s soft LARP weapons for both traditional, fantasy, futuristic and apocalyptic LARPs; affordable, entry level costume and a wide range of more elaborate, detailed pieces; and, thousands of other nick-knacks to flesh out characters. Our passion is for LARP, but we also have two gaming rooms dedicated to table-top role-playing and war games. These spaces were made with our own Dungeons & Dragons games in mind - we really wanted lots of fancy lights, an integral sound system, a digital screen for battle maps and a place to store Jamie's ever-expanding collection of miniatures and terrain. However, the store is now stocked with Warhammer, Kings of War, Nolzurs, Epic Encounters and Reaper miniatures, alongside a large selection of Citadel, Colour Forge and Army Painter paints, plus other goodies like TT Combat and dice!

We’ve supplied television productions such as BBC shows like Merlin, Atlantis, Horrible Histories, and many Netflix & Amazon shows. We've outfitted a number of The Dungeons with gruesome props and clothing, alongside other Merlin company attractions like Warwick Castle. We provide a huge amount of costume for theatre, both small productions and pantomimes, as well as larger productions such as the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Antony & Cleopatra.

We began field trading at LARP events in 2014, and you can now expect to see us at What’s Your Game, LarpCon or any of the main Lorien Trust events. In addition to every item of stock we can cram into the van, we offer help with any broken kit whilst in the field. Everyone at Larp Inn believes in giving honest and friendly advice, we listen and try to remember as many faces as possible. So, come in and say hi!

Our team


Jamie with Masks JamieWalking JamieinHat Jamie with child

AKA. The founder, the decision maker, the slave-driver and the boss!
Jamie is the biggest fish in our little pond, in truth he constructed the pond and also filled it with water. With a history in website design, building was easy; however, everything else was a case of trial and error. Fortunately, only some things went wrong and now, after 6 years, Larp Inn is a full time endeavour. Jamie does the talking and makes all the jokes, and can be found trading in an array of amusing hats. He will answer all your questions - So don’t hesitate to ask him anything, in fact ask him about the ‘Basic Dagger Incident’!


Harriett with Goblin Hood Harriett Smiling Harriett in Witch Armour

Harriett likes to be known as the administrative hero of Larp Inn, personal assistant or carer of Jamie. Harriett’s main skills include organising, coordinating and crisis aversion. Keeping the shop in check is more than a job, it’s a personal goal. When everything is running to optimal standards, Harriett helms latexing weapons, leather painting and customer services. On the stall, Harriett can be recognised by her friendly nature and particularly gummy smile.


Charlotte Smiling Charlotte the Healer Charlotte at Horror Event

Charlotte’s formal Larp Inn title includes fashion advisor and principal snack eater. Beside her expertise in mannequin dressing and chubby bunny, Charlotte has spent a record amount of time processing stock. She is frequently buried under bubble wrap, surrounded by cardboard boxes, with polystyrene chips tangled into her hair. At events she always chirpy, helpful and is happy to offer brutally honest advice as to costume choices!


David the Alchemist David at the Gathering David in the Tavern

AKA. Grandad.

David is the oldest and wisest of Larp Inn’s team. Though his knowledge is vast, you may not always leave the shop having learnt what you set out to discover. With a vast skill set, he is always on hand to lend advice or help with repairs. If he asks to take a photograph of you, do not be alarmed, he is merely impressed with your costume and wishes to share the photograph with his wife. David can typically be found in two places – behind the stall or in the tavern (yes, all year round)!


In 2021 Keith sadly passed away.

He was that elusive member of the Larp Inn team. Always in demand, he appeared on special occasions to share his vast knowledge of leather work and prosthetics. Keith’s mind could be described as a sketchbook of new designs and, to him, anything could be turned into a monster costume. He was always keen to form a union, but since he would have been in the only person in the union, it was just him with a placard saying “rain go home”. When found, Keith was often on hand to sell you things you didn’t even know you needed but you’d be glad to have.

He was an incredibly generous individual and a wonderful friend, and he is missed dearly.
