A fabulous evening of entertainment was enjoyed, on Saturday 26th August 2017, by several Carnforth rotarians and guests, at Kynren in Bishop Aukland. The sun shone until dusk.

The opening scene echoes a true event that took place in the 1880s, when a young cleric’s exuberant kick ultimately led to the Bishop banishing football in the Castle grounds. This prompted the birth of ‘The Blues’ – Bishop Auckland FC – the most successful amateur football club of all time.

The story continued through various eras in the history of England, including Vikings, Romans and both World Wars, it even snowed in the World War II scene. All of this was brilliantly performed, enthralling all onlookers, by volunteers in costumes, with scenery  and stage props which were absolutely amazing,
