Derby welcomes the Queen’s Baton Relay. The Relay will see communities across England celebrate with the Baton as it takes on the final stage of its 294-day journey across the Commonwealth. The Baton’s arrival in Birmingham marks the final destination and will kick off the largest multi-sport event in England for a decade, the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

A busy schedule of activities and events are planned for the Queen’s Baton Relay, with opportunities to highlight untold stories from Batonbearers who are striving for change in their community.

During its time in Derby, the Queen’s Baton Relay will visit the city centre and new Moorways Sports Village and will experience 300 years of rich industrial heritage that helped to put Derby on the map. The Derby relay will complete its route in the world famous Derwent Valley Mills UNESCO world heritage site at the Museum of Making.

The Baton and its bearers will arrive in Derby at 2.35pm and depart at 3.50pm.

Members of the public are encouraged to get involved with the celebrations and embrace the arrival of the Baton, taking the opportunity to experience the buzz of Birmingham 2022 in their community.

The Birmingham 2022 website will be updated with information over the coming months, with details on the events and where to line the route. 

We’re ready to take it on and be part of the celebrations.
