The Harrington Companye are an award winning 15th Century living history group based in Northamptonshire, but with wider membership across the land (currently Essex, Beds, Bucks, Cambs, Staffordshire, Derbyshire and South East London). We are part of the Medieval Siege Society, and can be seen at their events.

We portray the retinue of the Harrington family, the Lords of Wolfage Manor (Brixworth, Northants) and Hornby Castle.

We undertake Tournaments, battlefield portrayals, and can portray a companye of Pioneers on Campaign from the mid 15th C.
