Our Cilla to play this Saturday



Happy Christmas chuck!

There were two main acts that dominated Britain in the 1960's.   One was the Beatles, the other was Cilla.

Whilst perhaps not quite as tuneful as Dusty or Sandy, Our Cilla had an appeal to those who were waiting for the next big thing to emerge from Liverpool and the Beatles fans catapulted her into super stardom.

Singing all her hits and some that weren't - Don't miss this most famous icon of the 1960s on Saturday in London City.  The party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL.

The return of Santy's Grotty




Would you sit on this man's lap?

The adorable, slightly randy and alcoholic gentleman who has played Santa for us for the past four years, has returned once again, a bit worse for wear, to spread Christmas cheer to visitors of London City.

Our very own Chris Kringle has been hard at it and is ready to slip you a big surprise if you sit on his lap and tell him about all the naughty and nice things you have done this year.   Santa will invite you to have a rummage in his sack and pull out something big, spectacular and impressive.

You can't really miss his grotto as its peppered with gin bottles and discarded mince pies

Home For Christmas in London City



If you rent a land parcel and pay 4 weeks before 1st December, to avoid any unnecessary concerns that your rent will expire during the holiday season, we will extend your rental to 9th January.

With just one payment of 4 weeks, you are Home for Christmas with London City.



If you regularly visit London City and enjoy the community atmosphere, you may like the convenience of being able to build or rez your own home within a stones-throw of the centre of all the action in Second Life.

London City offers land plots where you can build or rez your own buildings and set home.  If you are not a builder, there are literally thousands of suitable houses available to purchase and rez.

You might be concerned about uninvited guests, but this is no problem at all because all parcels are highly configurable and offer total privacy and security. If you decide to set your land to 'private', only you and your guests can enter your parcel.  If you configure 'see and chat' no one else can see you inside your parcel.  If you set voice to the parcel channel, no one outside your parcel can hear you!

Of course you might be a party person and like strangers dropping by.  You can set your parcel to public access and the world and his wife can visit.    If someone annoys you, add them to your ban list!  Everything is configurable.

Each parcel comes with an impressive level of configuration to control your media, access and privacy.
