The striking open-air show has announced six performances for the summer holidays – and families are reminded to snap up tickets while they can.

It will launch on Saturday, August 6 and run each Saturday until September 10.

Produced by charity 11Arches, the show’s new dates follow on from a spectacular and successful performance for Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June.

More than 1,000 cast and crew members are involved in putting together the mammoth event, which takes audiences on a whistle-stop tour through centuries of history.

Anne-Isabelle Daulon, chief executive of charity 11Arches, said: “We are delighted to be staging six performances during the summer holidays, following on from the success of our Jubilee show in June.

“Kynren is a wonderful spectacle which appeals to all ages, providing an exhilarating gallop through 2,000 years of history in 90 minutes.”

The show follows young boy Arthur on an epic historical quest – from the Romans and the Vikings to the English Civil War and the Age of Steam.
