This ceramic mug celebrates the Aberystwyth tradition of "Kicking the Bar" at the end of the Prom by Constitution Hill. Theories abound about how this tradition started, from bored chaps killing time waiting for their date to emerge from the female halls of residence, to Prince Edward tying his shoelaces. Aberystwyth students Kick the Bar for luck with their studies, and Swansea University students actually stole the Bar once for a Rag Week prank.


Made in the UK.
