Boney M in Regents Park


The weekend is well under way, and if last nights action  is anything to go by, tonight will be even better!

This week we saw the awesome return of Boney M.

Boney M
 Boney M is a vocal group,  Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett from Jamaica, Maizie Williams from Montserrat and Bobby Ferrell from Aruba, the band  formed in 1975 in Germany and   they gained popularity through the disco era of the late 70's. This concert is so popular, people singing along to all the songs and having a great time , no wonder the sim fills to capacity, and people queue to teleport in.
Me, looking sooo smexy






Straight after time to hot-foot-it over to Juiced, our new Club in Adult Sim 3.

Bailey 
Time to come back to the land of the living, and there's only one person who can help us now... Bailey Saxmundham..... Manager of Lala's, |Bailey plays the very best in easy listening tunes around Midday, easing us into a lazy Sunday, it's a great way to relax after such a fun packed night.

Don't forget, we have well over 120 quality shops in London City, and they never shut, so if like me, shopping is your passion you can shop 'til you drop, maybe jump in a car and drive round London City....or meet up with friends at one of our Hubs.

London City Estate Expands



** PRESS RELEASE **

It has always been our policy that we only expand the estate as each region becomes totally self-sufficient and self reliant.

We are delighted to announce London City3 has achieved this goal and as we pride ourselves on being consumer led, the region has been upgraded to a full Adult region.

This compliments the most popular region inSL, London City (Soho) and is an exciting beginning to a new expansion phase for The London City Estate.

During August we began to extensively rebuild and restructure Victoria (London City3), with a focus on Adult nightlife, activities, dating and hookups.

London City3 currently features JUICED Nightclub, The Crown (& Anchor) Pub, Striptease at The Palladium, a Private Hotel, Adult Hub and the Russell Square Freebie Subway.

Although redevelopment of this region is still not quite completed, we hope that you will enjoy the facilities that are already up and running and return for an enriched experience as the building work concludes and the development cycle begins.

JUICED - An Adult Themed Night club, with a different themed interior each time you visit, is open daily from 2.30pm SL (10.30pm UK) Our premier Adult club is the ideal place to meet singles and those up for fun.

The Crown - British Pub for those looking to score, with communal facilities and private rooms. Open all day and staffed from 12pm SL weekdays.
The Palladium Striptease -  Watch and meet Exotic Dancers in one of London's oldest theatres.
Become a dancer yourself by having the group active. Logon to a tip hat and dance on the poles and start earning immediately.



THANK YOU!
Our sincerest thanks to our visitors, patrons, merchants and team for making this possible.  We hope you will all join us for a launch party during Bank Holiday Weekend (25-27th August!).

Visit London City: Victoria here http://slurl.com/secondlife/London%20City3/124/117/23




We believe this to be proof of concept as the original video published in October 2011 demonstrates (and attached for posterity).

Substation
TGIF!!! RL, today dragged on, waiting for the clock to hit home-time, waiting to login to SL, and most importantly into London City, The Top Destination is Second Life!! I've heard rumours,in darkened corners, that some people log-in to SL, and get bored because there's nothing to do??? What?  They obviously haven't found London City.... we have so much going on everyday in our sim's people literally queue to get in!
When Friday rolls around, the best place to head to is Substation, Roy and his team are rearing to go, to start your weekend with a bang! playing  music you can sing along to, in  fun, quirky surroundings, it's time to meet your friends, win some lindens, have fun chat and dancing

Then on to Bar Soho

Bar Soho

Bar Soho is a great place, playing all the latest hits, in swanky surroundings, echoing the real Soho in London. This really is a fantastic night out not to be missed, Dj willy on hand to play the great tunes and Katty your fun host that keep the mood light and fun  :) just one of the Dj Host combinations that work so well together keeping Bar Soho one of the most popular clubs in Second  Life.

Regents Park Martians









Saturday 11 August 2012




The chances of anything coming from Mars was a million to one they said....

The eve of the war, The Martians have landed on Earth... In London City, even they have heard what a great night out it is with us.
Regents Park






Abruptly, the sound ceased...







Helvis Xue

Helvis Xue












Later, no stranger to  London City, the awesome talented Helvis Xue, only singing LIVE, to a mass audience  on the Olympic stage in Regents Park, Helvis sings songs from his hero Elvis, but also ( get this ) he sings more contemporary songs with an Elvis twist, it's just like the King is still with us.


His voice is flawless, and he enjoys some cheeky banter with the audience who love him to bits. That's why he returns time and time again back to London City to perform for all his adoring  fans here.













Party people, came in their hundreds to sing and dance with Helvis, the stage was set, it had a fantastic Las Vegas Feel.  What a great night.















Later, we hot foot it round to Juiced, our fantastic themed night club, a new night, a new theme, a new décor, that's right,every night the club takes on a new look, and tonight is no exception, best in tattoo's, so the club was transformed into a tattoo shop complete with inking chair's and tattoo's you could pick from, this was an awesome night everyone turned up inked to the max, fun times!!

Sunday 12th August 2012


As always, our very own Angel of Mercy, Bailey Saxmundham, takes pity on the partied out people from the previous night, and eases us gently back into the land of the living, playing us the best in easy listening tunes at Madame Lala's. Thank heavens for small mercies :)

Usually we head to Substation for a right knees up, but tonight we head back to Regents Park, yet another night of history in the making, it's the Closing Ceremony of the Olympics, so Substation was held in the Park Roy hosted as Bailey played the tunes, people flocking in to be part of the celebrations, ready for the ceremony to start.



9pm rolled round, and the whole Real Life event was being beamed into Regents Park,


Wow the wonders of technology, how awesome. and what a night, we saw images portraying the hustle and bustle of London Living. Artists from the Uk, singing the songs we can all rememeber. George Michael , The Spice Girls, Stomp, all simply wondeful and all viewed from the number #1 venue in Second Life.











Then on to Juiced for best in Vampire






The club was transformed into a dark Gothic Vampire Castle, there was a river of blood as the dance floor, spine chilling stuff.

See, I told ya :) so that's it from me this week, I'll see you through the week fun more fun and games.
