The Fabulous Weekend Review






#London  City....











Simply  the best.








London  City  brings  you  the  best entertainment, linked  with  real  life,  through  the wonderful portal of  SL. Always  topical, we follow the real  life events  that happen  in  London, keeping  us  current and up to date, which  is  one  of  the reasons  we are ranked  number  1 destination  in SL.






Fun, Enjoyable, Current, Different, Amazing, Best , Awesome <<< these are  just  some  of  the Buzz words  people use  when  describing  London  City, and  I for one have to agree with  all  of  them, and  its  constant, everyday  in London  City  there's  something  happening, with new  Residents  arriving, and  old  friends  coming to visit  London City  is a metropolis of activity.




So,  this  week we decided to  treat  you all with our  wonderful  version of  Glastonbury..
Complete  with the great  British  weather...maybe  this photo will sum up how  the festival  goes  each year .....



Yes,  MUD...lots  and  lots  of  mud..





But,  this  doesn't  effect the hundreds of  thousands of people who attend, the  last  concert was held  in 2011.
Musical  acts  line  up to perform here at the festival, stating how "alive"  the atmosphere is.


Started  in  1970, and  started with a kind  of  hippie  feel, a bit like Woodstock.
The festival  is  usually held  over four days in  the open air, and  most  people  camping  in tents despite  the weather.








Although Glastonbury  is  found  in Somerset, we thought  its such a huge affair, we would  like to party along  too.


















Although Glastonbury  is  found  in Somerset, we thought  its such a huge affair, we would  like to party along  too.
It's estimated that the thousands  upon  thousands  of tickets  for  the festival  sell  out  within three to four hours of  going  on sale.



In  London  City  our open air  concerts are free for all  to attend,  but  get there  early, else you will be disappointed as it fills  rapidly.

Held  in  Regents  park, we have taken  the Glastonbury theme, complete with custom built stage amidst   the muddy puddles.



This week we saw  the awesome  Boney M in concert. No strangers to  London  City, we  love  nothing more  than grooving along with  this lively band, and  singing along  with  their great  hits.






























Boney  M were huge  during  the 70's. Formed  in 1975,  they took off in  the disco  era.






We sang  along  with classics such  as  "Daddy  Cool",  " By The Rivers Of Babylon", "Brown Girl  In  The  Ring" and many many  more
Boney M has a real feel good  factor, everyone  joining in and  dancing  the night away.
 An awesome  night to say the least.


Hey... did you ever watch  the Simpsons?


 Well for  a short  time  Moe's Tavern  is  visiting  us just  for a giggle, situated  behind  Compton's, if  you want a chuckle  make  sure  you  visit.



 Madame lala's swung into action  on Friday  night, with  DJ Fierce,
it was a best  in Red contest, and  that being  my favourite colour,  I just had to attend  :)
A fantastic  fun night, tongue  in cheek, compact and  kitsch, everyone has such a great  time here.


Substation played us a generous  mix  of  golden oldies, great songs that are guaranteed to get ya foot taping and conversations going.


The Crown, with  its  saucy fun strictly for Adults, opens  5 nights a week for  you enjoyment,  playing  the best  Trance music, its a great  place to meet  like minded  people for  no  strings  fun.











The Worlds End  pub and water  front, always  good for a laugh, fun, zany, and friendly  just  how we like it





And  much,  much  more we had amazing  themed events at  Juiced  where  the scenery changes  daily to match  the theme.

Bar Soho for  great  music and  chat,  Dykes  on Bikes where  Lesbian ladies and  their friends can meet  up for a dance and  chat. Palladium  for cabaret and  open  mic  nights, SwetBox for  gay guys only, a place to work out and dance,  plus our meeting areas, where friends  gather to catch  up, hundreds of  top quality shops to peruse, vehicles to drive around in from cars  buses and  helicopters you  name  it  London  City has  it...and  more,  and this  is  why we are  rated  number  one  in  SL,  but don't just take  my word  for  it...come along  we would  love  to meet  you....London  City  in SL... the one  and  only.... accept  no  imitations!

thats all from  me  this week,  I  look forward  to seeing  you  in  London  City for  more fun and frolics   next week xxx

DX Exchange Official UK HQ in London City



We are pleased to announce that DX Exchange, Authorised Reseller of Linden Dollars is back in London City, resuming its sponsorship of Events throughout the estate.

Earlier in the month all third party resellers were forced to suspend their businesses as Linden Lab changed Terms of Service so that only the Lindex could trade in Linden Dollars and eliminated all other competition in one sweep.   This meant an end to shopping around for Best Rates with one flat exchange rate for all, no matter how much it was!

Something happened at the top and Linden Lab had a change of heart and asked for applications to become official resellers, which DX Exchange is now.  DX is authorised by Linden Lab to trade in the sale of Linden Dollars.   This is good news for everyone as it means that competitive rates should keep pounds (or dollars) to linden conversions at favourable rates because once again there is competition to provide best value.

DX Exchange in London City re-opens its doors on Monday morning.  Be sure to visit the DX Exchange Official UK Headquarters and take advantage of some astonishing deals for the purchase of Linden Dollars.  With more flexible ways to purchase Linden Dollars, than the Lindex, including (but not limited to) buying Lindens via a phone call, DX Exchange offers the complete solution to purchasing money for use in Second Life.

The Fabulous London City Review



Hi  there, did  you  miss  me ?? what  do  you  mean "with every  bullet so far  "  how rude lol.

Today, I was  thinking  about  everyone's  journey  and  how  they came  to be  in SL. Each  of  us  unique  in  our  story  that bought  us  here,  maybe you had  a failing door-to-door business that never  really  took  off, like  most of  the things  you do, and  you ran  up  huge  debts, and  had  to  flee  the country, and  now  sit  on a sunbed , tanning yourself and logging into Second  Life.....





Maybe  you are  trainee in a profession, teacher or  nurse and  have  two  small troll looking children and  don't get to go out much, in fear  of angry  torch wielding villagers,  so  SL is  your only escape, where  you can  interact  with people and  pretend  to be  important,  or  maybe  you are a couple  of  RL entrepreneurs who have opened a successful  sim and  want  to entertain people and  bring  joy  all round ,  Like  London  City does, what ever  your reason  for  being  here,  I want to  give you a huge  big  Welcome, what ever your reasons  for  being  here  chances  are  you will find  your way  to  Second  Life's most successful  destination  ... London  City, where you will be made to feel welcome and  thoroughly entertained from  the  minute  you  land  'til you can  prize yourself  off  the keyboard  at bedtime.


(any reference made to  individuals  hold no resemblance to anyone  alive or dead, and  any  similarities  are purely coincidental)


So  lets  take a look  at our  fantastic  destination, here you will see a sim  rich with  colour, bursting  with atmosphere, full of  everyday  people, who come to  chill and relax with  great  friends in wonderful surroundings  that  are  LONDON CITY.
















So what do we  do that works  so well, and  other places fail so miserably at?



We have a great team  of dedicated  individuals, from Greeter  Staff and Support, who you will more  than  likely  meet as  soon as  you  land  in  London City,  to lively and  enthusiastic  Club  Hosts, and  Club  Managers, right  up  to  the Management and  Owners  of  this awesome  destination.

It's no  big secret, it's not magic, we are  just a team  of  people  who  all get  on  and  we all  have  one  thing  in common, to make  your visit with  us  the most  enjoyable and fun  you can  have  in  SL.

This is where  the other  places  don't cut the mustard, it really does  make  us  chuckle  when  people put themselves  forward as  contenders,  and  make a meal  out of  trying  to  put  us  down, seriously .... there is no comparison, more, we just  view  them  as  the snotty  nosed  snivelling  little  brother's  trying to  run  with the big kids.... but  who can blame  them really?



  London City  is  the  unparalleled place that sets  the standards  for  Virtual  Life  in  SL, the destination all others  aspire to emulate. We are  more  than  happy  taking the reigns, and  holding the top spot week in and  out, we constantly  strive to  bring  you  the best, and  we deliver,
with a cherry  on  the  top.






I am posting some  of  the beautiful  sights you can see  around  London City, all made  by  our wonderful and  talented  Billy  Arentire.  Billy has  an expert  eye for  detail, and  uses  rich colours and  textures that are  second  to  none.




As anyone who has  visited  London  City  know  we  follow  closely  the events that happen  in  RL  London and also  the  buildings , so Residents  who  choose  to  visit  us  get a great feeling  of actually  being  in  London and  taking  in the sights. Priding  ourselves  on  being  multicultural, many people from all  over  the globe visit us  on a daily basis.





 Just some  of  the events  that have taken place  in  London  City, From  our fantastic celebrations and  indomitable spirit or eurovision,  to the sad and  yet controversial Funeral of  Margaret  Thatcher, even  the   Riots that  hit  London in  RL. We were there every step of  the way. Oh and  the great British  summer weather.




Every week we hold  a fantastic  Open Air concert  in  Regents  Park  totally Free and available  for  everyone to enjoy. We see famous  acts  take  to  the stage  week in and  out  and  this weekend  we saw Steps.



















What a hoot!!! we had a fantastic  time,  the band  were great,  they even sang a few  hits  from  Lady  Gaga, which was  totally  unexpected , but  worked really well.

We partied  right  into the small hours , which  huge  prizes for people to win  too, its such a great  night out, you actually forget you are sitting in ya own front room, the atmosphere is always electric  and  the people  are fun  loving  party  people ..... if  you haven't experienced  one  of  our  LIVE events  you seriously don't know  what  you are  missing.







That's  not all ya  know!!!









You don't just have to wait  for  the weekend to have  fun  in  London  City.... everyday  we  have  at least 6 venues  you  can visit to have  fun  in, form  Adult no strings  saucy fun of The Crown  in  Victoria, to Substation a retro yesteryear  club  Specialising in golden  oldies  from the  60's, 70's and  80's.






We have  several  Pubs,  one  of  which  The Worlds  End  a typical  Brit  pub,  with Quizzes and games,
Or maybe small and kitsch is  your  thing  with  star turns,  then  look  no  further than  Madame  Lala's,  love  music ? Head to  Bar  Soho, a different  genre  every  night  with host Dj's and  dynamic party hosts.







Or maybe you  like to  get  totally submerged in a theme  then  juiced  is  the  place to  go , changing  its  themes  and d├ęcor daily its a must  see for  the  fun  loving  individuals.








One  thing  for  sure ...  You visit  London  City  in  SL...  you  Will  NOT be  disappointed. something to suit every taste.





 Even  if  its  just  taking a seat, people watching and chilling  out.

London  City and  Second  Life .....truly  the best  place to  be ....accept  no  imitations!!!


Well  that's  all  from  me  this  week, I hope to see  you around  for  more  fun and  frolics in the best  place ... London  City xxx
