Eat

Cirque Noir is an all inclusive event. We will provide a light dinner on friday and full dinner on saturday and sunday. Breakfast and lunch are also included as well as drinks and snacks.
 
Our kitchen staff can accommodate most dietary needs but we need to know this during sign-up. We cannot guarantee any special dietary needs after you have signed up so please contact us early when special arrangements need to be made.
 
If you have any specific medical or dietary needs don’t hesitate to contact us before the game on cirquenoirlarp@gmail.com so we can see what we can do for you, but we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate everything.

Alcohol & drugs

This is a limited-alcohol event. We will serve alcohol but in very limited amounts. Players who wish to drink alcohol will be provided personal bar tabs which allow them to drink either 4 beers, 3 wines or 2 whiskey/port every evening. There will be no alcohol served before dinner. Alcohol brought from home will not be allowed at the event. At the after party alchohol will be freely available, please note that our bartenders are allowed to deny you alcoholic beverages if they consider you too intoxicated!
 
Anyone who is found cheating the bar tab system or who brings alcohol from home will be immediately removed from site and not be allowed to return to the event.

To get to those you have to climb a steep set of stairs. However the inability to access these two locations should not take away from the player experience.

The tent area will be placed on a grassy field which is well maintained and unless completely rained through accessible as well. Some tents might be inaccessible with the wheelchair due to small entryways.
