15th September 2006 Bun Throwing – Update

According to the Oxford Mail (12th September) 450 buns will be thrown at the Bun Throwing event this Friday (15th September).

Although this is a relatively small number of buns in comparison to previous bun throws, the number 450 is very significant as each bun will represent one of the years of the 450th Anniversary of the Granting of a Royal Charter to the town.

This also means that the chance of catching a bun will be far lower than many previous events and competition amongst Abingdonians vying for the buns in the market place will certainly be fierce.
