|King Charles III's royal bun throwing event in Abingdon|
To mark the royal occasion of the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort my home town of Abingdon-on-Thames held a bun throwing event in the Market Place on Sunday 7th May.
Abingdon holds bun throwing events to mark, mostly, special royal occasions.
The events see local dignitaries ascend the steps of the old County Hall where they launch currant buns to the hoi polloi below.
The event began as a bread dole and evolved into a rooftop throwing event and its current incarnation. On this occasion a total of 5,000 buns were thrown to the crowd in the market place.
