Following our 2019 & 2021 visit to this fantastic show, we are returning in 2022!

Kynren is the UK’s most spectacular open-air live action night show since the opening of the London 2012 Olympics. It is listed by Rough Guides as one of the world’s top 10 must-see tourist attractions to experience in 2021.

‘Kynren – an epic tale of England’ is an exciting family show, taking you on a spellbinding journey through British history. Taking place on a landscaped open air stage (equivalent to five football pitches with a full-size lake at its centre) against the backdrop of Auckland Castle, you will be immersed in 2,000 years of history, with a movie-like, fast-paced and action-packed journey from Roman times to the Second World War, through the Viking invasions, the splendour of the Tudors, the Industrial Revolution and the Roaring Twenties.

As the story unfolds you’ll be treated to ships and a steam train, mass choreography, combat, dance, dazzling pyrotechnics and grandiose lighting and water effects. More than 1,000 volunteers are involved as cast and crew, with an accompanying cast of animals comprising performance horses, sheep, goats, cattle and even ducks.

The volunteers having been professionally trained by top performance experts, including teams who have delivered the mass choreography of London 2012 Opening Ceremony. The 90-minute show takes place once darkness has fallen, to create the best possible backdrop for the special effects that will bring the action-packed story to life.

As a result of feedback from previous trips we are now making this a 3-night break to allow us for more excursions!

We will be staying at the Holiday Inn  Darlington North 4-Star hotel on a half-board basis.

At this hotel you can enjoy free Wi-Fi and a mini-gym. The comfortable bedrooms have pillow menus and super king-size beds to help ensure a peaceful night.

In the colourful Open Lobby guests can relax in vintage-style armchairs, plug in laptops at the E-Bar or flick on the TV in the Media Lounge.

On the Saturday we will visit Durham before heading back to the hotel ready for the evening show.

On Sunday we will visit the Beamish Open Air Living Heritage Museum  – an amazing place.

Beamish is a world-famous open air museum, telling the story of life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s, 1940s and 1950s.

Explore the 1900s Town and see how families lived and worked in the years leading up to the First World War.  See what’s cooking in the pit cottages, practise your handwriting in the school and visit the chapel. Don’t forget to say hello to the pit ponies in their stables! All aboard! See this railway station as it looked in Edwardian times with its signal box, waiting rooms and goods yard and spot a variety of wagons on display.

On Monday we will visit Whitby for lunch before heading back to Norfolk.
