You just know that its official summer, when (at enormous expense), you see the Olympic sized swimming pool arrive in London City.  Come cool your heels, flap your gums and get a beer down your screech.

Bank Holiday Weekend coming...

Oh yes indeedy, its time for yet another long weekend in old Blighty.   There is nothing more we like than plenty of public holidays throughout the summer.  There is also a rumour of the government planning an extra holiday in October to make up for all the ones we have lost this year by staying indoors.

Please get rat assed responsibly
It has become much more difficult to work out who is still in lockdown and who is not.  The UK Government still advises you only go out for essentials and work (if you cannot work from home).  Socialising is still off-limits.  And yet thousands of people are flocking to the beaches, whilst visiting your family is still likely to get you pinched, especially if the police smell a wonderful barbecue wafting out of your back garden.

Here in London City, we hope that those of you still following the advice to be sensible, or those self-isolating, will enjoy three days of party Mayhem with us, kicking off on Friday at 1pm SL with Madame Lalas.

You don't have to be out in the real world to enjoy yourself and have a beer.  Look at this offer from Adsa,  goodness me, that's cheap!  So get online now and order some party grog for this coming weekend.

Eurovision 2020 - The Show Goes On in London City

This Saturday was to be the Eurovision Song contest, before it all got horribly cancelled like everything else on the planet.

However, you can still enjoy Eurovision 2020, exclusively in London City at 12pm SL (8pm UK) this coming Saturday! 

Before the live show got cancelled, the 40 songs from every country all over the globe, had been selected for this years contest, and with some jiggery pokery and some excellent research by Bailey, we will bring you the show that should have been.  We even have Pans People providing the glamour.

You, the audience in London City, will be invited to award points for your favourite artists and with the modern tabulating technology, we will be able to announce a winner at the end of the show!

For those of you who don't know what Eurovision is.. It is a singing contest that is so bad, it is great.
Traditionally and especially because UK took forever to leave the European Union, the UK ends up last with Nil points and the crowd usually boos us.  Invariably we come last every year, but that is all part of the fun.

It is a grizzly spectacle for the campest show on earth, and we are bringing it to you, live from London!

So set a date in your diary for this Saturday and come armed with pen and paper so you can award points.... or take them away!

The theme for the cash competition will be "Best in Your Country's Colour"

The show must go on!
