1460 Northampton – To be announced shortly.

1469 Edgecote – To be announced shortly

Both walks will be followed by a well earned pint in a local pub.


The Companye also attends the Medieval Siege Society programme of Woodland Skirmishes, which are private events with no public, suitable for both archers and men at arms and enormous fun.


We also have our 2014 banquet which will be taking place in November,  plus traditional authentic Twelfth Night celebrations in January each year.


Open to non-mss members.

Since we don’t know what the weather will be like, medieval and modern dress are equally welcome.
