Our Volunteers are literally the stars of every aspect of the show.
More than 1,000 volunteers contribute thousands of hours of their time to be professionally trained and to bring you Kynren. Every role that is essential to the production – cast, backstage, show technical operation, visitor experience, landscaping and maintenance or animal husbandry - is undertaken by our volunteers.
We call them ‘Archers’; they range in age from 5 to 81, coming from Bishop Auckland, Weardale and the surrounding areas, and from all walks of life. When they join together they form an extraordinary community.
