Bank Holiday Weekend in Review - 4th to 7th May



So here we are again, except my blogging of the exploits in London City are slightly later than usual as it was a Bank Holiday weekend here so we continued partying through Monday.  I am so exhausted that I am ready to get back to work for a rest.

Three parties seems to be the way of life on a Friday now with Substation hosting Best in 50's Fashion, Bar Soho having Best in Sci Fi (for May the Fourth) and Madame Lala's rounding the evening off with a Best With Own Teeth contest.  I am not sure who actually checked the teeth, but thankfully it wasn't me.

Continuing on where we left off on Friday we had another three events on Saturday.  The evening started at World's End with a Best in Angels and Demons themed event.  Following on from that we headed on over to Regent's Park for a Best in Underwear contest with Tom Jones tribute taking to the main stage.



The night ended at Lezbo with an Under The Sea event and another of Ruby's amazing themed sets.


On Sunday we began to wind down from the constant partying as Substation ran a Best in Beatles Era contest.  Plenty of Beatles' hits and a pleasant atmosphere in the 60s themed underground club.  Sunday then finished at Lezbo with a Best in Spanish Outfit contest that saw some spectacular dancing with fans and castanets.


As Monday was a Bank Holiday and we managed to escape from real life and work, there was a traditional street party, which also played host to Adele and Best in Come As You Are.  The event saw the square outside Bar Soho transformed to a makeshift venue with catering facilities to suit all tastes (especially the beer tent).


The long weekend then ended at Bar Soho with a Worst Dressed contest.  As that has just finished as I am writing this, the outfits are still burning my eyes so you shall have to excuse we while I go and blot them out with several pills.

Hope you all have a great week.  Keep an eye on the blog for announcement of developments in London City this week and as always, thank you for your continued support.

Weekend in Review - 27th to 29th April



Hello my luvvies. just auntie Bailey here with a quick weekend round up as I all partied out this weekend!  And what a weekend it has been - we seem to get more and more parties each week.

On Friday we started off at Substation with an Addams Family party, before moving on to Bar Soho for Best in Baggy Pants and then ended up at Madame Lala's London Revue for Best in Hair and Teeth.

On Saturday we hit World's End for Best in Swimwear (maybe a bit chilly but no one noticed).  Then it was on to Regent's Park for the big Saturday party.  It had a Best in Cowboy/Cowgirl theme and a first for us - a tribute concert featuring John Denver.

Honestly we were line dancing...it just looks like a camp country recreation of the Thriller video

After the party in the park, we headed off on the nightbus to Lezbo for Best in Fluffy/Tiny.

On Sunday we were beamed up to Substation for a Best in Star Trek contest before heading over to the Lezbo Asylum for Best in Horror.

"I only popped in to visit a friend..."
And that concludes my missive for another week.  Have a good week and hope to see you around London City.

Weekend in Review - March 30th to April 1st



Good grief...what an insane weekend in London City.  My bunions have bunions from all that dancing.

On Friday we had a change to the usual running order as the usual night at Bar Soho was cancelled to make way for an event by Gallery Xue in Trafalgar Square.  It proved to be an absolute sim packer with people floating around the fountain.


After the Gallery Xue event, we headed over to Madame Lala's London Revue for another round of mayhem and madness.  A Best in 80s contest proved to be challenging on the eyes...leg warmers. leotard, bad perm...and that was just me.

Saturday at World's End saw a Best in Super Hero contest, which provided a great warm up to the big event that was to follow - Queen in Regent's Park.  It was a long concert (at around two hours) but the punters were kept happy with plenty of toe-tapping, hand-clapping and foot-stomping favourites.


Later at Lezbo there was a Best in Sci Fi contest that saw all kinds of madness - from aliens to robots - unleashed on the dance floor!

On Sunday, as it was the first of the month, there was a tea leaf reading at The Tea House by Lord of the Teapot.

This lead nicely in to a special event in the Hub - a L$3000 giveaway!  Both events drew in the crowds...in fact, they were queuing out of the door for tea leaf readings.


Later on Sunday we had the grand opening of the new venue beneath Comptons.  It is a fab and groovy 60s club called Substation. We were all magically transported back to 1967 with the music, hair and fashions.



After that, we had a Best in Under The Sea contest at Lezbo, which rounded the weekend off in suitably madcap style, with sea turtles, whales and merfolk!

Stay tuned for news of next weekends events - a nice long weekend...heaven only knows what will happen...

Weekend in Review - March 16th to 18th



Hello my little loves!  Yes, auntie Bailey is back after a week off due to ill health (*coughs for effect and sympathy*).

For anyone who didn't know - Saturday was St Patrick's Day and that provided the inspiration for quite a lot of what took place in London City over the weekend.  We started off at Bar Soho with a Best in Patrick's contest.  You can always tell that you are in for a good time when a line up of individuals dancing includes includes a fox in a St Patrick's hat dancing a jig!

Foxy ladies and an actual fox
From there we moved on to Madame Lala's London Revue for a Best in Green contest (trust me, you will see a theme develop across the parties as we go this weekend).  More jigging ensued.  I tried to get a pic up Billy's kilt but alas all I got was a crack in my lens...

Green with envy (or too much alcohol) at Madame Lala's
For Saturday we had a special stage built in Regent's Park and a contest featuring The Dubliners.  Yes, there was more jigging.  Yes, there was more green as part of the Best in Irish contest.  There may have even been some drinking as the area had two bars for the evening.

And the stage was an entire pub...
Trees are green...and so were the punters
After the concert, festivities continued as the Lezbo roadshow took over the area...oddly enough with a Best in Green contest!  At least it meant people didn't have to change...though some of us did

Delicious DJ Ruby and hot host Sean whip the revellers in to a frenzy

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.

The band and Demis (above) and party people (below)
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!

QUEEN Plays to Packed House!



Saturday night in Soho, London City saw the arrival of the legendary band QUEEN!


Queen packed the house to bursting. 100 of the sexiest avatars showed up for this SRO (Standing Room Only) show. There were so many people on the dance floor we could hardly see Queen on the  Open Air, Theatre stage, but quick camming skills gave everyone a fantastic view!


Prynce of subVersion in London City provided a free gift for everyone at the concert, a specially made Queen outfit given just for the night! We can't thank Prynce enough for his long standing support of London City and were thrilled at his participation during the nights events! Queen rocked the stage and the sound of hundreds of feet on the dance floor filled the summer air. The roar of the crowd was deafening.

We partied well into the night with our Best in Latex contest. Camp Attack took over the dance floor to a sea of sexy latex clad hotties. Special congratulations goes out to Ed Floresby for winning tonights competition.

It was an amazing night of pure London City entertainment...another in the Summer Pop Series!

More pictures of this phenominal concert are available on our Facebook page.

ELTON ROCKED LONDON CITY!



The Elton John Concert in London City Regent's Park was a massive success.

Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

Before the concert began, people were flooding in to claim their spot on the dance floor. We were joined by London community regulars as well as visitors from across Second Life. A selection of camp disco filled the warm night air in this second Summer Pop Festival concert. The crowd was buzzing with excitement while we waited for Elton John to appear.

The crowd reached a fevered pitch as Elton took the stage just before 10pm UK. The applause from 100 avatars was deafening when the curtain fell to reveal Elton sitting at a fuchsia piano, supported by the lovely Eltonettes.


The bitch was back with a vengeance!

Elton entertained the SRO (standing room only) crowd with classic hits like 'The Bitch Is Back' and 'Crocodile Rock'. People danced and sang along to their favorite tunes from this icon of popular music.


The Elton John concert pulled in a record 100 avatars

London City was heaving with activity throughout the night and due to excellent asset management we were able to keep the sim online all night! This meant we were all able to party well into the night without a single glitch.

We continue our Summer Pop Festival next week with Queen. Join us in London City Saturday 16 July for this phenomenal show!

Mainland London - A City on the Grow!



Mainland London continues to be a popular destination for people from all over the world and our expansion is well under way!

Regent's Park has been given a face lift and grown to accomodate the needs of visitors. The New User Experience continues to be a popular area of the park and we expect the same for the London Zoo. The animals have been ordered and are on their way from exotic locations. When they arrive they will be housed in specially created environments that will make them feel right at home. Visitors to the zoo will be treated to a day out like no other, be sure to get a free Geoffrey the Giraffe plush animal to hold and a free commemorative London Zoo balloon!

The road works are complete and new shops and attractions are being installed daily. Rezz and drive a car, walk or fly through the streets of Mainland London and you get a glimps of this vibrant thriving community. Enjoy one of the daily parties at Bar Soho or shop at one of the many merchants who call Mainland London home.

And speaking of merchants. We can't seem to build shops fast enough to accomodate them! We already have several reserved locations and are working day and night to complete these 'one of a kind' builds. Our shops and homes are bespoke and do not exist anywhere else on the grid. Should you find the same building outside of Mainland London rest assured it is a copy and not the original. With all the buzz and excitment of the expansion be sure to get your request for one of these fantastic buildings in early.


The Royal Exchange and Cannon Street Station are just two of the historic buildings we have recreated for the enjoyment of visitors to Mainland London. And we havent stopped there! Our list of historic builds continues to grow to the delight of everyone. We're not goning to tell you which buildings are going in, so you'll have to visit us every day as we have quiet a few suprises in store!

All this expnasion, plus the huge volumn of visitors makes Mainland London a city on the grow!
