Gravesend will welcome the Queen's Baton Relay on 8 July, one of hundreds of communities across the country to receive a visit from the Queen’s Baton Relay, which culminates in Birmingham, where the baton will take a central role in the Opening Ceremony of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
On Friday 8 July, Gravesend will officially welcome the Baton between 8am and 9am.
A busy schedule of activities and events are being 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 Gravesend, the Queen’s Baton Relay will visit the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara, before being carried through the streets to Town Pier, where it will be taken on board a boat and ferried across to Tilbury from where it will start its tour of Eastern England.
Details of the best viewing points to enjoy the event will be publicised shortly.
