Cumbrian composer Russell Burbush has penned the anthem to mark the games in Workington this month.

The song has been commissioned by Allerdale Council as part of the Welcome the World celebrations, a programme of cultural events and performances taking place in the run up to the big event.

The four-minute track, entitled Welcome to the World, will be played at the televised Tonga, Scotland and Italy matches at Workington’s Derwent Park Stadium.

Keswick-based Russell, a musician and composer for both TV and theatre and a director of New Arts North, a community arts organisation specialising in music and visual arts, said: “People are being encouraged to listen to the song, and share it on social media channels. We want people of all ages to and celebrate a sporting event through a song they can sing together.”
