Kynren

Kynren

Auckland Castle

Over 100,000 visitors came to see Kynren last year. This year, the show will be even Bigger, Better and Brighter with the addition of completely new scenes, new characters, extra layers of detail, more special effects and a much larger cast.

Whether you are a returning visitor or experiencing Kynren for the first time, join us on a whistle stop tour of 2,000 years of history, myth and legend, and expect to be blown away by the sheer spectacle of this year’s show.

'Kynren - an epic tale of England' takes you on a captivating journey through 2,000 years of British history, myth and legend.


From Roman times to the Second World War, encompassing the Viking and Norman invasions, medieval feasts, the splendour of the Tudors, the Industrial Revolution and the Roaring Twenties, Kynren takes you on an action-packed voyage.

As the story unfolds upon a landscaped, open-air stage (equivalent in size to five football pitches with a full-size lake at its centre) you will witness ships, a steam train, mass choreography, combat, dance, fire, dazzling pyrotechnics and astonishing lighting and water effects.

More than 1,500 volunteer cast and crew - joined on stage by a supporting cast of performance horses, sheep, goats, cattle, geese and ducks - bring the show to life. Our volunteers have been professionally trained by top performance experts in dance, theatrical combat, guest management, pyrotechnics, and cavalry to create a world-class show.

The 90-minute show begins at sunset and ends in star light, set against the magnificent backdrop of Auckland Castle in Bishop Auckland, County Durham. The show is crammed with special effects that bring each scene to life. The sound track by award-winning composer Nathan Stornetta will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end...
