The Queen’s Baton Relay was launched on October 9, 2013 and over a period of 288 days the baton will visit 70 nations and territories, cover 190,000 kilometres. It will finish its journey at the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland on July 23, 2014.
CAM would like to include museums of the Commonwealth in this tradition leading up to our own Triennial Symposium – Taking It To The Streets – which will be held in Glasgow in May 2014.
