Bishop Auckland College has kindly made its parking facilities available for Kynren visitors across the 11 shows. No income is passed on to Bishop Auckland College, and all car parking charges paid by Kynren visitors are solely to cover the complex traffic management system across the season. Bishop Auckland College has offered the use of their car park spaces free of charge in order to support us in our goal to make Kynren a sustainable show which can continue for generations to come. We are grateful for Bishop Auckland College’s ongoing support to Eleven Arches. Eleven Arches and Bishop Auckland College are both members of the ‘Brighter Bishop Auckland Partnership’ working to help in the regeneration on Bishop Auckland.
