Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay
Saturday 23rd July
Want to be part of something special this year? The SVR has announced that it will be hosting a section of the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay in the final build-up to the Commonwealth Games this summer and we want YOU to be there celebrating with us!
The Queen’s Baton will travel along the line, hauled very appropriately by No. 70 ‘Elizabeth II’, the steam locomotive recently painted purple and silver to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The Baton will arrive at Kidderminster Station on Saturday 23rd July, where it will be greeted by members of the community and a ‘guard of honour’ made up of SVR volunteers. It will then commence its journey along the full length of the line to Bridgnorth.
Seats on the special service will be allocated to members of the public and SVR volunteers in a ballot and will be free of charge. Viewing spaces at both Kidderminster and Bridgnorth stations will also be allocated by ballot in order to control numbers. Applications for the ballot will open soon but you can pre-register below to ensure you’re the first to know about the ballot opening!
