The organisers of the Kynren say the show will be back next year, bigger and better than ever.
Kynren has been staged in Bishop Auckland over the summer, attracting an estimated 100,000 visitors to the town and surrounding area.
The performance itself has taken place at night, and tells the story of 2,000 years of British history.
More than a thousand volunteers have been involved in putting on the event, both as cast and crew.
On Saturday, Kynren was staged for the final time this season, but the charity which has produced the show plans to bring it back next year.
The fact that we've got tremendous energy behind the whole project has been carrying us all along and to this point, everybody's been very emotional to actually say goodbye to the first season and can't wait to start all over again.
