The Role Play Haven started as most RP groups tend to – we gathered at a friend’s house to play. As the number of interested people increased it became apparent that squeezing fifteen gamers around one table is something of a challenge. It was decided that a larger venue was needed, or the beloved ‘Wednesday Night Roleplay’, as it was known to members, would cease to be.


A handful of the players decided to set up the Role Play Haven at The Lewis Club, behind Lewisham Hospital. Since then it has grown over the years, to over one hundred enthusiastic members. We have six or more games running each Wednesday at Lewisham and a similar amount at our Stratford branch.


July, We set up as a Community Interest Company, allowing us to expand and raise money for charity, as well as provide a brilliant gaming experience.
