Thank you to everyone who visited the weekend concerts through September and helped celebrate London City's 7th Birthday. We hope you enjoyed the festivities as much as we enjoyed bringing them to you.
Last night the London City Players presented Pink in Concert to a full house. Next week is the beginning of the Autumn season which of course, at the end of the month, includes our Halloween shows featuring Michael Jackson and also The War Of The Worlds.

Although only mainly active for that single decade, by the time of Karen's death in 1983 aged just 32, ten of their singles become million-sellers and by the millenium over 100 million albums had been sold.
"Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft", is the recognised anthem of World Contact Day which happens in March each year, where the song is constantly broadcast by satellites into outer space.
Join us for The Carpenters in Concert. Party in the Park starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) and features songs from the era and The Carpenters in Concert begins an hour later at 1pm SL.

London City started out on the Mainland, seven years ago. Back then it was called "Mainland London".
For posterity, we still maintain a small parcel on our original home region 'Mephilo Tor'.

Her Majesty the Queen turned 90 in April, but today is her official Birthday. This cunning tradition of doubling up on pressies, originated after a bleak wartime childhood where she would receive just a tangerine and maybe the odd country or two to add to her Empire.
Happy 180th Birthday ma'am.
See you at London Pride tonight, for the Bee Gees in Concert.

Happy Birthday to Her Royal Highness the Queen, who is 90 years young today.
Her Majesty's accession to the throne was in February 1952 and she was Coroneted in 1953. Her 64 year reign makes her the longest serving British Monarch of all time, surpassing Queen Victoria's 63 years and 7 months, which ended in 1901.
The celebration of the Queen's Birthday will be held on Thursday 12th of May to Sunday 15th May.
For details see: The British Monarchy Website
Long may Queen Elizabeth II continue to reign.

Six years ago on a little 8192 parcel on the mainland, we built this tiny street "Soho Square", with just 8 shops and Bar Soho nightclub. The buildings have improved somewhat over the years, but they are "of the time". This road ultimately spread out to become London City.
We hope you will come and celebrate our 6th Birthday with us this coming weekend!
Also, we have a brand new schedule for the clubs starting this weekend - news on that very soon.

London City began its life on the mainland in a region called Mephilo Tor. The region is still around but largely vacant.
It all seems like such a long time ago. Here's an old video of "Mainland London" as we called it back then. Hopefully my video editing skills have improved slightly since these early videos.
