This incredible show is brought to life by over 1,000 volunteer cast and crew members, all coming together to create a world-class spectacle.

A SPECTACULAR SETTING

Performed on a sprawling seven-and-a-half-acre stage against the stunning backdrop of Auckland Castle, Kynren is truly a sight to behold. The show features magnificent sets, mass choreography, intense combat scenes, daring stunts, impressive horsemanship, breathtaking pyrotechnics and cutting-edge special effects, including state-of-the-art video projections.

NEW FOR 2024: RETURN OF THE VIKINGS

This year, Kynren 2024 is introducing an exciting new pre-show experience: the Viking Village. Before the main event, you can explore an authentic 9th-century Viking settlement. Included in your Kynren ticket, the Viking Village offers a glimpse into the past with a working blacksmith’s forge, a cookhouse with a vegetable patch and a woodworker’s cottage. You’ll also meet some charming animal inhabitants like curly-haired Wensleydale sheep and Icelandic chickens.
