Join Kynren’s Cast & Crew

25 January 2017

More people from across the North East are being given the chance to be a part of live action spectacular, ‘Kynren – An Epic Tale of England.’

The open-air show, which attracted more than 100,000 visitors to Bishop Auckland in 2016, is returning this summer, bigger, brighter and better than ever.

Auckland Castle Trust’s sister charity, Eleven Arches, which organises the event is now appealing for more people to join its professionally-trained volunteers – affectionately known as Archers – and be part of this year’s cast and crew.

A special Mix and Match session – like the one pictured – is being held at the Kynren site at Flatts Farm at 6.30pm on Thursday 26th January, offering anyone interested the chance to meet with some of 2016’s 1,000 volunteers, get to know the team behind Kynren and learn more about the range of roles available.
