Traditions: Bun Throwing!

Bun Throwing TraditionBun throwing first began when rich people started giving bread to the poor which then moved on to the rich giving cakes to the poor on special occasions. The town of Abingdon took up that tradition and in 1760 when King George III came to the throne, councillors threw thousands of cakes to the crowds to celebrate the coronation.
