Kynren - An Epic Tale of England, brings history to life with blockbuster open-air performances at 11 Arches Park, Bishop Auckland on Saturdays from 6 August to 10 September 2022.

Back for 2022 with six summer shows and one special additional show to mark the momentous Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on Friday 3 June 2022.

Rebellions, wars, magic, majesty, celebration and heartache are vividly brought to ground-shaking life in a dazzling outdoor-theatre spectacular.

From Boudicca’s battles with the Romans to two world wars, via Vikings, Tudors, Stuarts, Queen Victoria and the Industrial Revolution, Kynren is a spellbinding, family-friendly experience.

Kynren offers enthralling live summer entertainment which delivers thrills, shocks, tears, laughs, goosebumps and gasps on a truly cinematic scale. The 90-minute spectacular starts at sunset and ends in starlight making it a truly magical experience.

Audiences watch from the 8,000-seater tribune which provides panoramic views across the giant outdoor stage. Experience 2,000 years of history, myth and legend as you join young Arthur on his epic quest.

Gates open at least two and a half hours before the start of each show throughout the summer, allowing visitors the opportunity to arrive early for food and drink in one of their dining areas, while also enjoying live jazz by the lake.

Kynren strives to ensure the site is accessible to all visitors. The main visitor path is compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act and there are reserved places available for wheelchair users to enjoy the show.

A pre-booked Park and Ride Shuttle Bus Service to and from the site is also available and there is designated parking for Blue Badge Holders, subject to availability.
