TripAdvisor lists Kynren – An Epic Tale of England in its Top Five Performances in England to visit this summer. With rave five star reviews, this ‘must see’ live action show set in the North East is proving to be as much of a hit this summer as world-renowned West Ends shows The Lion King and Les Miserables, both of which also feature in TripAdvisor’s top five.

Set against the magnificent backdrop of Auckland Castle in County Durham, the 1,000-strong cast and crew bring the history of the UK and the North East to life in a 90-minute world-class spectacular.

This seasonal live action show returns with a breath-taking odyssey through 2,000 years of history and brand new scenes, characters and daring, fiery stunts. With state-of-the-art special effects, amazing fireworks and evocative orchestral music, this amazing celebration of heritage and history is both remarkable and unmissable.

This year Kynren focuses on the theme ‘In Remembrance’, with the world-class spectacular marking two very special centenaries, the World War I Armistice – a moment laced with poppies and poignancy – and the Suffragette Movement winning the vote for women. Brand new scenes include a World War II commemoration of the Royal Air Force, and rousing moments of modern history, such as Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation and England winning the 1966 World Cup – every era stamping its mark for all generations.

Impressive five-star credentials in their hundreds of thousands from TripAdvisor add further endorsement of the passion and professionalism of the 1,000-strong, local cast and crew, who have taken the show to world-class status, making arts and entertainment accessible to all generations.
