SUGGESTED HARRINGTON EVENTS
We are interested in hearing about any events and meetings
where Harringtons will be present. Please notify the webmaster.
HARRINGTON GATHERING 21ST MAY
Following on from the excellent past Harrington
Gatherings organised by David Hurley and in conjunction with
the Amberley Chalk Pits Museum, we have chosen to carry on the
good work and take the show on the road as it were.
The Harrington Gathering comes to Wythall will be
held on the 21st May 2023 at the Wythall Transport Museum, just
south of Birmingham. The museum which incidentally is
a quite excellent day out in its own right - has kindly offered
to host our event and offered full use of their facilities.
We already have a good number of confirmed bus and coaches confirmed
as attending, but it would be excellent to have a good representation
of cars, miniatures and commercials that were produced by the
So, if you have a car, or would just like further details, please
feel free to contact me through Facebook Messenger, or by email
As with the Amberley Gatherings, this is likely to be run on
a once in every five years basis, making this event
one not to be missed!
