Durham University Treasure Trap is (as far as we know) the world’s oldest continuously-running live roleplay (LARP/LRP) group. Split off from the original Treasure Trap in 1983, it has been running and developing its own system ever since.
DUTT is a ratified society of Durham Students’ Union, and as such is a student-run society.
DUTT’s President, Secretary and Treasurer are required to be students, but other positions are available to non-students. Major decisions are made by General Meetings at which any student member of the University of Durham, who is also a member of the Society, can vote.
You can read the Society’s Constitution and meeting guidelines.
How to Join
Membership is currently £0 for a year (only available to current DSU members) and £3 for non-DSU members.
Interactives (tavern nights) cost £1 and adventures cost £3 to attend if you’re playing your character – crewing events is free.
However, you’re entitled to attend your first interactive and adventure for free; so the best way to join is to turn up to an event, then if you like it, you can join at the end!
