Birmingham 2022 Queens Baton Relay visiting Market Bosworth!

The Queen's Baton Relay is travelling the length and breadth of England for a total of 29 days, before culminating at the Opening Ceremony for Birmingham 2022 on 28 July 2022. On Thursday 21st July, Market Bosworth will officially welcome the Baton.

Where will the relay be taking place?

The relay will pass through Market Bosworth, starting at the junction of Springfield Avenue and finishing outside of Bosworth Hall.

What time does the relay occur?

The relay is expected to begin at 10:50am and finish at 11:10am. However, due to the nature of the baton's journey, we advise you plan for potential delays.

What happens on the day?

The Queen's Baton will travel through Market Bosworth by 6 nominated Batonbearers, all with inspirational stories. There will be ample space along the whole route for spectators to watch the relay. The Batonbearers will be followed by the Birmingham 2022 team and the event will be covered by the media.

Road closures - we will enforce temporary road closures from approx. 10:30am to accommodate the movement of the relay through Market Bosworth. These will be opened as soon as the procession has exited the village to avoid disruption.

This is a FREE event open to all to enjoy and witness a truly historical moment for Hinckley & Bosworth.
