Line up ye partners! Swansea Uni Annual Ball Dance Card, 1922

Inside the 1922 Dance Card for the annual ball that year, which took place at the Patti Pavilion. The pencil was for students to match dance partners to each of the dances!

Students would have taken one of these along to the Patti Pavilion with them for the Annual Ball. But why the pencil?

Swansea Uni Rag Week 1922!

A fantastic assortment of costumes from this gathering of students in This picture looks as though it was taken in front of Singleton Abbey, the administrative centre for the University.

40 years before Singleton Abbey became Swansea University, our estate was owned by Henry Vivian, 1st Baron Swansea ...      Despite marrying 3 times and fathering 8 children, Henry somehow found the time to serve as an MP and turn Swansea into a major industrial centre ... In 1881, he hosted King Edward VII (then Prince of Wales) and Princess Alexandra in the Abbey - the room they stayed in was later known as the 'Royal Bedroom'.

Swansea University has been making waves since World-class research, an unrivalled location, and a superb student experience.
