Harry Gregson-Williams (born 13 December 1961, England) is a British composer, orchestrator, conductor, and music producer. He has regularly written for films.

Gregson-Williams won a musical scholarship to St John's College at the University of Cambridge at the age of seven, where he was a child chorister, and later attended Stowe School, a boarding independent school in the civil parish of Stowe in Buckinghamshire, where he was a music scholar, followed by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

Composer Stanley Myers introduced him to composer Hans Zimmer, who invited him to work with him of the film Muppet Treasure Island in Los Angeles.

After a period of collaborating with Zimmer and others on several film scores, he began to compose music for films on his own. Among the films for which he has composed music are The Borrowers, Antz, Chicken Run, Shrek, Bridget Jones, and The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe.
