A HISTORIC live action show has appointed one of UK’s leading pyrotechnic display teams as their partners for 2019.

‘Kynren – an epic tale of England’ will see each show incorporate more than 600 separate pyrotechnic effects including burning boats and setting riders on fire.

The Bishop Auckland show – which has teamed up with Reaction Fireworks – is performed on an outdoor stage, complete with its own lake.

Every display is personally designed and created by display director Adam Hillary, a leading pyrotechnician with an international reputation. His works include staging fireworks displays on Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia.

Mr Hillary said: "We are thrilled to be working with such a world-class show. The displays for Kynren this season will take the visitors' breath away.

“We are also pleased that as part of our work with Kynren we have the ability to share our knowledge and skills with Kynren’s in-house pyrotechnics crew who help put on the show.”

The shows will take place every Saturday from June 29 to September 14.
