Book early to avoid disappointment : the EARLIER you book the MORE YOU SAVE, the WIDER YOUR CHOICE OF SEAT, and the CLOSER TO THE ACTION you get!
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
