1922 Annual Ball Dance Card, Swansea University

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

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.
