UK's biggest open-air night show launched

Date Posted: 11/06/2015

A castle in County Durham is set to become the home of a brand-new tourist attraction in the form of an open-air entertainment show.

The first performance of what has been described as the UK's biggest open-air night show will be staged in Auckland Castle’s chapel, County Durham, in a years’ time.

The show aims to bring 2,000 years of Britain's history to life, through the eyes of the North East, from the Roman times to post World War Two.

Eleven Arches will entertain up to 8,000 visitors per show across a seven and a half acre stage with a cast and crew made up of 1,000 professionally trained volunteers.

Eleven Arches is modelled on the French theme park, Puy du Fou's own night show in France, which has been seen by an international audience of more than ten million people in the last 37 years.
