Bishop Auckland’s spectacular open-air live show Kynren was performed for the first time on Saturday night to an audience of local residents, journalists and special guests. The first full run-through of the eagerly-awaited epic tale of England at Eleven Arches.
Featuring a 1,000-strong cast of volunteers, animals, pyrotechnics, lighting and water effects the dress rehearsal was completed without any obvious major glitches.
The show opens to the public on Saturday July 2nd and tickets are selling fast. So far 80 per cent have been snapped up by those living in the region, however the rest will see visitors from as far afield as China, New Zealand, South Africa and the US.
The Eleven Arches is a charitable trust and all profits will be reinvested into the show to make improvements and give people reasons to revisit.
Bishop Auckland’s high street has struggled in recent years but many residents and business owners believe these new ventures will see it become known throughout the country as a must-see visitor destination.
