There is a flash sale of 20 per cent off deluxe and standard plus seats for the first two shows on July 29 and August 5, but be quick, the offer runs until Friday, July 28.

Performed by a 1,000-strong cast and crew on a 7.5-acre outdoor stage, the multi award-winning show follows a young boy, Arthur, on his travel through time. It is packed with thrilling choreography, amazing stunts, incredible equestrianism, world-class special effects and pyrotechnics.

From Boudicca’s battles with the Romans to two world wars, via Vikings, Tudors and the fate of Charles I, Kynren is a family-friendly experience delivering thrills, shocks, tears, laughs, goosebumps and gasps on a panoramic scale.

The show is produced by charity 11Arches, which was established together with the Auckland Project by philanthropist Jonathan Ruffer. It has attracted almost 400,000 visitors to the town since its inception in 2016.

Kynren has also put the area firmly on the map for many international tourists, with 40 per cent of its visitors coming from beyond the north east and as far afield as USA, China, South Africa and the Middle East.

Bishop Auckland, which is just 12 miles south west of Durham and home to around 25,000 people, stands high above the River Wear, with commanding views of the surrounding countryside. Other established attractions in the town include the April Food Festival, Mining Art Gallery, Bishop Trevor Gallery and Auckland Tower.
