Proudly presented by Eleven Arches on a seven-and-a-half acre stage, 1,000 cast and crew immerse you in the telling of a 2,000-year tale; the history of England. Kynren brings to ground-shaking life the story of invasions, royal splendour, wars, heroic sacrifice, daily life and seismic change.
Take your seat with 8,000 others; enjoy a perfect view and be swept along by a thrilling, family-friendly journey. Two thousand years in the making: dazzling pyrotechnics, beautiful choreography, amazing stunts and hard-to-believe horsemanship combine with an inspired, original soundtrack to leave audiences and critics enraptured and awestruck.
Performances take place most Saturdays between August & September. Book early for your pick of the 8,000-seater Tribune.

An absolute 'must see' experience , not just a show. The main event is a unique open air performance of the history of the North East of England given on an outdoor stage by hundreds of highly trained and motivated, local volunteers of all ages AND animals.
This is an unbelievable masterpiece of entertainment. Relatively unknown you would be wise to book and secure any seat as the vista is equally as good from bronze to gold.
I took my grand-sons 11&12 years ,One of them had just returned from Florida [ Disney land] , so I expected this show to be a hard act to follow, how wrong I was ! . This show is fantastic ,keeps you entertained from beginning to end well worth every penny.
This is a wonderful way to spend a summer's evening. We had the opportunity to see the last show of this season and I have to say I wasn't prepared for the true spectacle of this amazing event. It makes you proud to live in this region!
Kyren was recommended and exceeded all my expectations. This is a wonderful spectacle in a fantastic setting. There was so much going on it was hard to know where to look. Exciting one minute and charming the next, Kynren is delightful and not to be missed!
Can't recommend the evening highly enough. Go if you get a chance, you'll be giggling, cheering, stomping clapping and crying all within 90 minutes. Adored it!
Take every superlative used in the previous reviews and you still can't convey the brilliance of this experience. Superb special effects, lighting techniques, pyrotechnics, 1500 talented and enthusiastic volunteers on stage and around the venue and some amazing animals too
