Gold Coast 2018 Queen's Baton Relay

We were delighted to support the Northern Ireland Commonwealth Games Council with PR for the Gold Coast 2018 Queen's Baton Relay last week.  Pictured at Belfast City Hall and attending the Lord Mayor's reception was our MD Rachael with her daughter Evvie (10). This was a very special moment for young Evvie as she not only held the Baton but met the legendary Dame Mary Peters.

The Queen’s Baton Relay is a Commonwealth Games tradition that celebrates the Commonwealth’s diversity, inspires community pride and excites people about the world-class festival of sports and culture to come.

The Queen’s Baton carries a message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that calls the Commonwealth’s athletes to come together in peaceful and friendly competition.

The Gold Coast 2018 Relay will be the longest and the most accessible ever, not just passing through, but spending quality time in each community it visits.

The relay started on 13 March 2017 at Buckingham Palace, and is travelling on an epic 388-day journey through all nations and territories of the Commonwealth.

The Queen’s Baton will arrive on the Gold Coast for the XXI Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony on 4 April 2018, where Her Majesty, or a representative, will remove the message from the Baton and read it aloud to officially open the Games
