Published : 08 Apr, 2019

Tickets for the UK’s biggest outdoor live theatre event have gone on sale online.

Taking place every Saturday from 29th June to 14th September*, ‘Kynren – an epic tale of England’ is back!

 2019 is “Year of the Viking” – The Vikings have arrived! See their dramatic attack on a fishing village which leaves a trail of destruction and fire.

Experience the more peaceful side of Viking life in the brand new Viking Village. Take a stroll along the stream and watch the past come to life at the working blacksmith’s forge and don’t miss the village’s animal inhabitants.

The unmissable live blockbuster features even more action-packed thrills and stunts than ever before. Performed by a 1,000-strong cast and crew on a 7.5-acre outdoor stage at Bishop Auckland, County Durham, watch legends come to life in a thrilling tale told on an epic scale - 2,000 years in the making.

This multi-award-winning live action spectacular takes you on a spellbinding voyage through history as seen through the eyes of Arthur, the son of a mining family.

Watch Boudicca’s courageous but doomed uprising against the Romans and the clash of Viking and Anglo Saxon leaders at the battle of Stamford Bridge.

Experience the excitement of daring jousting knights on horseback charging at full speed, for the entertainment and merriment of Bishop Bek, the Prince Bishop of Durham, and his colourful entourage.

Witness the future King Arthur’s magical encounter with the Lady of the lake and as he draws the sword Excalibur from the stone.

Step aboard Queen Elizabeth I’s royal barge as she invites Shakespeare to introduce some of his most famous characters, trace the bloody outcome of England’s Civil War and follow King Charles’ final journey to the executioner’s block.

Join in the lavish celebrations of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and travel with the brave soldiers to the battlefields of the continent during both World Wars.

Get there early to ensure you make the most of all there is to enjoy before the show! Just as Arthur does in Kynren, you too can travel through time. As well as the new Viking Village, pre-show attractions include the Georgian Animal Croft - where you can meet Kynren’s cast of animal actors, the improved Food Village featuring local, high quality suppliers and a new 1940’s Bar with a street party vibe. The attractions open at least 3.5 hours before the show starts across the summer and 3 hours before in September.

Tickets are now available online at www.kynren.com. All tickets are sold on a first come first served basis so book early to secure the best seats.

*No show on Saturday, 3rd August.
