Join us for Kynren 2018!

What is an Archer?

‘Archers’ is what we call our amazing volunteers. They are the heart and soul of Eleven Arches and Kynren. Quite simply, without them, we wouldn’t have a show.

Our Archers receive professional training from leading experts in their respective fields – combat skills, choreography, pyrotechnics, stage management and so on. Supported by the Eleven Arches team, almost every aspect of the production of Kynren is managed and performed by Archers: making props and costume, looking after the animals, setting up lighting and pyro effects, performing in the show itself, welcoming visitors to the show, and managing & maintaining the site during performances and out of season.

Becoming an Archer is like joining an extended family and becoming part of a vibrant community. Many Archers make lifelong friendships, learn new skills, and discover that they can achieve great things.

Open Evenings!
