Weekend in Review - 23-25 December



Season's greetings from London City and auntie Bailey.  forgive the smell of sprouts permeating this blog posting for the weekend...it is the Christmas season, after all.

We managed to have a rather sedate and classy Christmas in London City, which just goes to show that miracles do happen!

On Friday we dispensed with the usual Bar Soho and Madame Lala's London Revue combo again and had a Party in the Park instead.  It was something different as it was a brand new tribute concert featuring Demis Roussos and contained a selection of festive favourites along side Demis classics.

On Christmas Eve we had another crack at the Proms in the Park.  It had proved to be such a hit earlier in the year, but this time it was given a Christmas twist and seemed to be well received by a very merry crowd - I suspected that most of them had already opened the seasonal booze reserves...I know the players on stage had!

 Christmas Day was a quiet day - no events, just people hanging out as and when they could and spreading cheer.  A random prize giver added to Comptons pub was picked bare and I spied a few people having a go at the trivia machine too.

Stay tuned for more news from London City as it happens!
