Full Queen’s Baton Relay Route and city events announced for Derby


Full plans have been announced for the Queens Baron Relay Rout on the 11th July.

Arriving at 4.11pm, the baton and the next bearer will be greeted by a starting line next to the Forest for the Future with the sounds of the Bombay Baja Brass Band.

From the Market Place, the baton will make its way along St James’ Street, The Strand, Sadler Gate and on to Iron Gate before heading towards Full Street and the finish line at the Museum of Making and Cathedral Green. On arrival at Cathedral Green, the baton and bearer will be greeted with a spectacular pyrotechnic display as it passes the finish line. The relay will then take a five-minute break before it heads off to the next relays in Matlock, Bakewell and Buxton. Along the route around the city centre, the baton will be passed between five different baton bearers.

Across the city centre, live acts including the Caribbean Carnival troupe, stilt walkers and huge Swallow shaped silk kites will wow spectators and support the relay as it races around the city. Visitors will also be able to watch the baton’s progress through the city, live, via a large screen on Cathedral Green.
