About this event

Residents and visitors are all invited to welcome the Queen’s Baton Relay as it makes its only stop in Suffolk when it comes to Bury St Edmunds on Saturday 9 July.

The Relay will arrive in the award winning Abbey Gardens at 1.20pm and be carried around the grounds and historic Abbey ruins, which celebrates its 1000th anniversary this year, by three batonbearers, before being delivered to the Festival of Suffolk Community Games at Bury’s Athletics Track on Beetons Way.

The baton relay begins at the Holocaust Memorial. Rev’d Canon Matthew Vernon, Canon Pastor and Sub Dean of the Cathedral will present the baton to the first of three batonbearers who will take it around the gardens and historic ruins.

It will arrive back in the center of the formal garden before being taken onwards to the Suffolk Community Games.
