QUEEN’S BATON RELAY COMES TO CANTERBURY
Canterbury will welcome the Queen’s Baton Relay on Thursday 7 July as it makes its way around the UK ahead of the Commonwealth Games this summer.
The baton will be carried by a number of baton holders on a route across the city, concluding with a community event within the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral.
Canterbury City Council is leading the organisation of the Canterbury section of the baton relay and is working on a series of complementary events, potentially around sport and music, to coincide with its time in the city. More details will be confirmed in due course.
