Kynren recently celebrated its 50th show.

*Seating: seating is all outdoor on raked stands.

*Weather: no performance of Kynren has ever been cancelled due to the weather.

*Clothing: a rain coat and jacket is recommended as the temperature can drop. Shoes need to be suitable for fields.

*Parking: frequent shuttle buses run from car parks to the stage area and are well sign-posted.

*Food and drink: food and drink from the likes of Tango burger bar, can be purchased in the food village but queues are long. The stalls stop serving around 15 minutes before the show and there is none served throughout the performance.
