Kynren – Open-Air Live Action Night Show

Bishop Auckland is set to burst into life as the UK’s most spectacular open-air live action night show since the opening of the London 2012 Olympics opens this summer.

‘Kynren – an epic tale of England’, presented by Eleven Arches, will take audiences on a spellbinding journey through British history when it launches in July for the first of 14 action-packed and movie-like performances of colossal and dazzling proportions.

Taking place on a 7.5 acre landscaped stage (equivalent to five football pitches) against the backdrop of majestic Auckland Castle, this incredible production will immerse audiences in a captivating story that stretches across 2,000 years, encompassing Roman times, the Viking invasions, the Industrial Revolution and Second World War, with ships and a steam train, mass choreography, mesmerising pyrotechnics and spectacular lighting and water effects.
