And so it starts all over again, for many volunteers participating in Kynren 2018 – An Epic Tale of England, training has already started.
For me, it’s just about to begin.
This week I head to my first session of this new season, attending a refresher combat induction in preparation for a busy, but enjoyable training schedule.
For my new team 7 teammates and the rest of the male combat teams, rehearsals and choreography come thick and fast over the month of March.
We’ll be taking part in none other than 18 different sessions within the course of the month.
And quite honestly I’m looking forward to it.
Although, Kynren 2018 leaves me with the exact same questions that led me into Kynren 2017.
Just quite how do each of those volunteers do it?
Even now, watching the newly released promotional videos, I sit and watch and think how am I going to do what each of those cast members do when they perform on that stage.
I really don’t know how.
For me, I would class myself to be a personable person, and I felt very at ease within the Experience Team during season 1, but this is a challenge for me, a challenge I think I need, and one that I could really relish in.
Stepping back 12 months ago I was heading a little bit into the unknown, I may have witnessed the jaw dropping performances of Season 1, and knowing that I too would be learning what each of the Archers had learnt before me.
I recall thinking and saying outloud, how are we going to deliver all of these changes, but you just do.
There is a confidence that simply grows inside of you, driven on by those that stand side by side amongst you.
And Season 3, 4, 5 and so on will be exactly the same.
Many volunteers started this project with a want to take part, become involved, and to give back.
And now as we head closer to the start of Kynren 2018, just 15 weeks away, the experience flows through each of them to help and aid the newer volunteers such as myself transition quickly to the level that is now expected.
There’s an overwhelming passion for the project and of each role that is undertaken, each Archer carries that proudness, that togetherness, and a want of getting the job done to the best of their abilities.
It is a project and show like no other, it captures your heart and keeps you wanting more.
Tickets are now on sale with discounted prices available until 28th February.
