In addition to these events, the Companye also undertakes commemorative walks on the Northants  battlefields of the Wars of the Roses. This year we will be walking on the following dates:

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 on Saturday 29th November,  plus traditional authentic Twelfth Night celebrations in January each year.



The Archer of the Year title will be contested on November 2nd at the Hazelborough site.


Open to non-mss members.
