Kynren - An Epic Take of British History

 

Bringing 2000 years of history, myth and legend to life in a spectacular family entertainment for all ages!

 

As dusk falls, you take your seat in anticipation in front of a vast stage. The lake is still. You are immersed in the music. You are watching King Harold rejoicing, having conquered the Vikings, but his celebrations are short-lived. The tranquil waters of the lake begin to ripple, its surface begins to swirl. Suddenly a Norman longship erupts from its depths, bearing a fierce William of Normandy and his roaring men who leap ashore, swords held high.

 

This is just one of Kynren's 29 scenes which takes you on an action-packed and emotional journey through time. Encompassing the Roman occupation, the Viking and Norman invasions, medieval feasts and jousting, the splendour of the Tudors, the English Civil War, the Georgian Renaissance, Industrial Revolution and two world wars right up to the current period and many other scenes in between - Kynren takes you on a spellbinding voyage through history, myth and legend, as seen through the eyes of Arthur, the son of a mining family from the North East of England.

 

Brought to you by a 1,000-strong cast and crew who have been professionally trained by international performance experts in dance, theatrical combat, pyrotechnics, and equestrianism. The huge cast is joined on stage by the animals of Kynren, collectively bringing each scene to life amidst jaw-dropping special effects and an original sound track by the award-winning composer Nathan Stornetta.
