Queen’s Baton Relay will be coming through Worcester on Friday 22 July

The Queen’s Baton is currently on an epic journey across the Commonwealth, visiting all 72 nations and territories. The Relay began on 7 October 2021, with Her Majesty The Queen placing a message to the Commonwealth into the Baton, and it will culminate at the Opening Ceremony for the Commonwealth Games on Thursday 28 July in Birmingham. This collective journey will ignite hope, solidarity, and collaboration, as it connects communities, embraces unique cultures, and shares inspirational stories. It will provide the opportunity for communities to experience the excitement for Birmingham 2022, as the 11 days of show stopping sport nears ever closer.
