The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games starts on 28 July. Ahead of that, the Queen’s Baton Relay is making its way around England to share the buzz of the Games with communities across the country – and its coming to Buxton on Monday 11 July!
We’re excited to be welcoming the Relay and want people to come along to enjoy the atmosphere, cheer on the Batonbearers and enjoy the spectacle and entertainment on offer.
The Relay is set to arrive at Buxton’s Pavilion Gardens at around 6.20pm and the Baton will be carried on a route through the Gardens by seven Batonbearers who have been chosen because of the work they do to inspire change in their local communities.
It will finish at the Bandstand at around 6.40pm where there will be a short celebration including speeches and an operatic performance from the Buxton International Festival.
You can watch the Relay in the Gardens. The route itself will be taped off but you can stand anywhere else in the Gardens.
Please come and join us on 11 July and let’s give the Relay a warm High Peak welcome. https://www.highpeak.gov.uk/QBR
