Crowds and parades will bring Campbell Park to life at the start of October as it plays host to the “Fanzone” for the Rugby World Cup, several matches of which are taking place in the city. The two weeks of activities include a range of events including processions on the first weekend, a 1980s music festival, a fireworks display on the final day, a jazz music performance, and much more.
The CMK Residents’ Forum will be investigating the potential impact of the event on local residents, following on from the parking and environmental problems experienced after the Cyclo-cross event last year. For the Fanzone event, a shuttle bus service will be operating between Campbell Park and the Stadium:MK, which it is hoped will reduce the number of people arriving by car.
The Fanzone will be open from Thursday 1 October through to Monday 11 October, overlapping with the Rugby World Cup matches being held at the Stadium:MK. More information will be posted on this website when it becomes available.
