Queens Baton Relay
June 30 @ 10:30 am
On 7th October 2021, the Queens Baton departed from Buckingham Palace on it’s journey to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The international route spans an impressive 269 days, spending between two and four days in each nation or territory, covering approximately 90,000 miles (140,000 kilometres), with over 7,500 Batonbearers trusted with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to carry the Baton in their community.
On the 29th of June 2022, the Baton Relay arrives in Wales and Team Wales takes over, and we are delighted to say that the Baton will be visiting Tywyn and Abergynolwyn on the 30th of June and will be carried part of the leg on the Talyllyn! More details to follow – save the date!!
The train carrying the Baton will leave Tywyn at 10:35, but will not be a public train, however, you are very welcome to come and wave it off!
