The spectacular open air night show Kynren returns to Bishop Auckland in 2017.
Presented by Eleven Arches, the first show of season two takes place on 1 July 2017 with a total of 17 performances through to mid-September. Now under the creative leadership of director Steve Boyd, a veteran mass choreographer for multiple Olympic and Commonwealth Games, the show is set to be bigger, better and brighter than before.
Set against the magnificent backdrop of Auckland Castle in Bishop Auckland, the 90-minute show takes each 8,000-strong audience on a visually stunning journey through 2,000 years of British history, myth and legend.
Crammed with special effects that bring the show’s scenes to life with thrilling visual impact, audiences will be transported from Roman times through to the Second World War, encountering Viking and Norman invasions, mediaeval feasts to the splendour of the Tudors, the Industrial Revolution and the Roaring Twenties along the way.
In 2017, there will be a much larger cast and crew to add to the visual splendour and scale. This season will involve 1,500 volunteers who will be joined on stage by a supporting cast of performance horses, sheep, goats, cattle, geese and ducks, plus life size replicas of Norman longboats, steam trains, wagons and carriages. The volunteers will be professionally trained by top performance experts in dance, theatrical combat, guest management, pyrotechnics, and cavalry to create a world-class entertainment.
