Weekend in Review - February 24th to 26th



Well that's another weekend of insanity over with...although that one was even more insane than usual.

Things usually start off with our Bar Soho and Madame Lala's London Revue combo, but there was an early start as a variety of old codgers took to a specially erected (stop giggling) stage in the Hub.  Rolf Harris, the Seekers, Demis Roussos and Peter, Paul and Mary all made appearances during the course of the afternoon.  These were accompanied by various toga, sixties and hippy contests set up to terrify...erm...I mean...thrill the assembled crowd.

We then had a Best in Patriotic contest at Bar Soho - with yours truly in a dress far shorter than I would usually wear - and Best in Glamour at Madame Lala's establishment.

The big news on Saturday was a combination of the big concert - Kylie! - and the Lezbo roadshow for a Best in Punk contest.  The concert featured possibly the biggest stage set to ever be erected (I told you to stop giggling) in Regent's Park.

Some of the party-goers in Regent's Park and Kylie and the band (as insets)
On Sunday we had our usual weekend wind down at Comptons where the contest was for the Worst Dressed.  This seem far harder to pick than anyone would have imagine from the state of a lot of people in SL...

The final blast of the weekend went as always to Lezbo with a Best in Baggies/Rave contest.  I am not saying things were bright but I think I have lost some colour recognition in at least one eye.

Speaking of eyes, it is time I rested mine!  Be good (and if you can't be good, be careful - or have an alibi).

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!

The players take to the fabulous festive stage
 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!

Weekend in Review - 16-18 December



So here we are again, kiddies...another weekend over.  Not many left in 2011 - time flies when you are having fun (and also when you are dancing on stage in a white outfit and afro...more on this shortly).

This is the point in my reviews when I say we did the usual Bar Soho and Madame Lala's London Revue stuff on Friday to start the weekend off.  Only one problem.  We didn't!  Last week we had the Bar Soho roadshow in the park outside Comptons pub...stage, dancefloor, lighting, the whole works.  To further confuse everyone, on Friday the Bar Soho event collided with Madame Lala's campfest to form one big mashup - with music ranging from camp, cheesy pop to hard dance.  A totally bizarre experiment in musical mayhem, but hugely enjoyable - even for the elderly (like me)!

Saturday provided another unique experience as Gallery Xue provided us with a Natatorium in the water out back of Comptons.  With everyone in the water floating on their backs as a series of visual effects taking place, it proved to be something totally different to anything we have seen before and was hugely popular.



Later on Saturday, the party hordes descended on Regent's Park once more for an overdose of classic camp pop with our tribute to Boney M.  It proved to be a great success as always.


At Comptons on Sunday we had a festive knees up, as this was the last party in Comptons for 2011.


On Friday, the Bar Soho and Madame Lala's London Revue experience crashes together once more in Regent's Park with a special festive celebration featuring Demis Roussos.  Saturday sees the Christmas Proms take to the stage for a Christmas Eve that is sure to prove unforgettable (hopefully for all the right reasons!)

As this is my last Weekend in Review before Christmas, I would like to wish everyone involved in London City in any way a very Merry Christmas - whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whoever you are with spread a little joy and be open to receiving some back.

Sunday at Comptons



Sunday Evening at Comptons Pub, is shaping up to be a really good spontaneous evening of fun in London City.

This Sunday as the sun finally shone and warmed London up a bit,  we nipped down to B&Q and got an awning for the back of the boozer, so the pub regulars could party in the evening air.


The lovely Robyn of RX Designs here in London City, provided a leather basque and a Mad Max outfit as prizes for those who turned up to a Best In Shorts contest.



Our old friend Demis Roussos turned up with his old "Friend the Wind", to provide a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere, with the odd tornado or two.



An enjoyable, fun, low maintenance evening.  Just what everyone needed after such an exhausting Friday and Saturday.

Saturday: PARTY in The Park and MAPOO LITTLE singing LIVE!



With events throughout the day including our world famous Coffin Race, the only place to be is Mainland London!

The Party in Regent's Park gets going today from 11am PDT (7pm UK) with Madame Lala playing her Land That Time Forgot Disco Remix.

At 12pm noon PDT (8pm UK) Mapoo Little takes to the stage singing LIVE, the songs of Tina Turner. Be sure to arrive early, this is a show you won't want to miss!

From 1pm PDT BAR Soho in the Park for the latest pop tunes!




Last night at Madame Lala's, the legendary 1970's performer, Demis Roussos wowed the crowd with a fantastic upbeat concert from his latest tour.   Songs including "Zorba" had everyone up on their feet and dancing to perhaps the most unlikely revue Mainland London has put on.... to date :)
