Creative director Steve Boyd extends Kynren for upcoming season
27 Jun 2017 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
Kynren features spectacular special effects including pyrotechnics and water effects
Kynren - An Epic Tale of England, a spectacular open air show will reopen for the 2017 season on 1 July 2017.

Set against the stunning backdrop of Auckland Castle, in County Durham, UK, the 90 minute show, produced by Eleven Arches, takes audiences on a 2000 year journey through British history, myth and legend.

Audiences are taken on a whistle stop tour through the Roman occupation, Norman and Viking invasions, medieval and Tudor times, the English Civil War, the Georgian Renaissance, industrial revolution and Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee before culminating in the devastation of the first and second World Wars.

Under the creative control of recently appointed creative director Steve Boyd, whose previous credits include 13 consecutive Olympic and Paralympic opening ceremonies, the show has been expanded to include a cast of 1500 professionally trained volunteers, and an extended animal cast including 34 performance horses, a flock of sheep, gaggle of geese, two donkeys and a pair of Durham shorthorn oxen.

The show includes a number of spectacular new special effects including stunning water effects and pyrotechnic displays, and features additional new content and characters, with Boudicca queen of the Iceni, Cardinal Wolsey, Prince Bishop Bek and the Venerable Bede making their inaugural appearances.

Other changes include an enhanced narrative, with entirely new dialogue recorded by actor Kevin Whately, known for his roles in Auf Wiedersehn Pet and Lewis.

The show will run from 1 July 2017 until 16 September 2017.
