Weekend in Review - January 6th to 8th



Yes, it's me again, auntie Bailey the crazy spinster of London City with the weekend review so hang on to your hairnets and let's do this.

Our weekend kicked off in London City as they always do with a Best In contest at Bar Soho.  Friday's contest was Best in Slogan T-Shirt so no photos have survived the censor's knife as everyone always wears things with rude slogans.  Even a shy, retiring maiden aunt like me is force in to something provocative.

After our stint at Bar Soho ended, we trudged off down the street like some bizarre protest march to Madame Lala's London Revue, where we were treated to the musical stylings of Judith Durham and The Seekers.  I am sure I was not the only one who regarded this with more than a little trepidation but it turned out to be a fantastic musical tour through some classic songs that had the patrons dancing in the aisles...or maybe that was the alcohol.

On Saturday we had our big event in Regent's Park with a new addition to the list of tribute concerts.  London City favourite Britt McMahon brought us Blondie - ably assisted by some of the lovely ladies of the London City staff (who were all transformed in to men to be Debbie Harry's band).  Despite many complaints (from the staff who were forced to wear sensible, i.e. ugly, male shoes), the concert was a huge hit with numbers on the sim peaking at 102.

You may have guessed the contest theme was Best in White
Sunday brought us a sense of deja vu as Judith and The Seekers did an encore performance at Comptons.
