Singer Will Young TRY-umphantly celebrated the Rugby World Cup with a performance in Milton Keynes last week.

The Pop Idol winner stepped onto the stage wearing an England strip in front of 1,383 fans for an hour-long gig in Campbell Park on Friday.

More than 36,000 people visited the fanzone during the 11-day than Festival of Rugby.

David Foster, chief executive of The Parks Trust, said: “It was great to see so many people in the park and watch rugby fans and their families enjoying the activities.

“We have had lots of support from people who have volunteered to help during the event and support from local businesses and we can’t thank those involved enough.
