Open air venue to put Bishop Auckland on tourist map
The £27m Eleven Arches development in the grounds of Auckland Castle in County Durham premieres its first season of night shows this month.
Inspired by the Puy du Fou project in France, the scheme has transformed the former Eleven Arches golf club in Bishop Auckland into an open-air venue for historically themed night shows - the largest open-air performances since the Olympic opening ceremony in 2012.
The site now includes a seven and a half acre stage, an 8,000-seat grandstand and 1,800-space visitor car park, as well as staff and coach parking, stabling for the horses used in the show and ancillary buildings.
Eleven Arches is the vision of philanthropist and investment manager Jonathan Ruffer. Eleven Arches is one of two charities he has established in Bishop Auckland, the other being Auckland Castle Trust. Together, the aim of the charities is to establish Bishop Auckland as an international tourist destination, attracting visitors and investment which will contribute to the fortune of the area and empower the community.
Multi-disciplinary construction consultancy, Edmond Shipway, acted as project manager, quantity surveyor and mechanical and electrical engineers on the ambitious project, which aims to attract nearly 200,000 visitors and millions of pounds every year.
