Taking place in Bishop Auckland, County Durham every summer, 'Kynren - an epic tale of England' is a live action extravaganza that takes you on a journey through 2,000 years of history, myth and legend.
Taking place on a vast open-air stage with a huge lake at its centre hiding a host of surprises, you'll meet many of the characters and events that have shaped the north east - and the country as a whole - as the 29 scenes, encompassing the Roman occupation to World War II, unfold in front of your eyes. With a cast and crew of 1,000 performing alongside the animals of Kynren, the scale of the show must be seen to be believed. Spectacular sets appearing as if by magic, mass choreography and fierce battles are illuminated with dazzling special effects, lighting and pyrotechnics, set to a spine-tingling original score which you'll experience in movie-like surround sound.

Enjoy a walk in the sprawling grounds, clock a few laps in the leisure club's indoor pool or wind down in the sauna, steam room and spa bath. Linger with a coffee or snack in the comfortable Mercury Bar, or sip a cool beer on the patio
We depart Pembrokeshire and make our way to our hotel with plenty of comfort stop on the way.
After a full English breakfast, we make our way to Beamish outdoor living museum. Beamish is a world-famous living museum telling the story of life in the north east of England during the 1820’s, 1900’s and the 1940’s. Watch delicious bread, cakes and biscuits being made using traditional Edwardian recipes – and why not buy a freshly-baked treat to take home? Or pop in for a pint or a snack at the Sun Inn, a real traditional pub that was moved to Beamish from Bishop Auckland. After our visit here, we stop for food at a local Restaurant before making our way to The Kynren spectacular outdoor show.
After our breakfast we start our journey home to Pembrokeshire.
