Archive of the month

The Archive of the Month feature raises awareness amongst students and staff about the variety of material that we hold. In particular, the old Bangor photographs appear to spark a lot of interest and debate on the University’s Facebook pages.

Every month, an item is selected to be showcased. The item is scanned and a short piece of text written about its history.

December 2017



A University Christmas dinner menu, held on Tuesday evening, 12 December 1922 at the British Hotel, Bangor. After being told to Sit down, you rascals!, the guests enjoyed a feast of oxtail soup, periwinkles, spare ribs, roast lamb, Christmas pudding or apple tart with custard for dessert, and cheese and biscuits to finish; before being commanded to Get up, you rascals! for the toasts. Toasts were offered to the king, the college, themselves, the ladies and to new members. The poet R. Williams Parry proposed the toast to the ladies, and his signature is to be seen amongst those on the reverse of the menu.
