Weekend in Review - 7-9 October



A totally insane weekend in London City...makes a change!

As always we started out at Bar Soho before moving down the road to Madame Lala's London Revue for a tribute concert featuring Welsh hip swiveller, Mr Tom Jones.  He warbled his way through a selection of hit choons, much to the joy of the assembled crowd.

On Saturday we had an impromptu gig from Joan Baez in Trafalgar Square as part of a protest for peace, which saw much hippy placard waving.

Later on Saturday there was a Party in the Park with a contest theme of Best in Glasses in honour of the star attraction, Elton John!  The place was packed out and thankfully as so many people opted for dark glasses, Elton's outfit did not seem nearly so bright.

Sunday saw a change of pace at Comptons pub...well, several changes of pace actually as we had a good old fashioned hoedown with DJ Billy (the kid).  Country tunes and line dancing spectacular ensued.  It turned out to be an unexpected hit with the punters.

Line dancers...but who is gonna clean up that floor?
