The Gathering is an annual fantasy fest larp in the UK. Run by the Lorien Trust, it attracts about 3,000 players, making it the largest larp in the UK.[1] It has run every year since 1992.[2]

The Gathering is set in the Lorien Trust's "Erdreja" setting. Characters are divided into NPC-led factions and guilds, allowing the GMs to direct the politics of the game. Linear side-adventures are also run.[3]
