April Fools free zone

We had a great April fools planned for this year, before the world went tits-up.   We had intended to land you on a region sized flat green grass in the sky via a forced landing point to make it look like London City had moved.

However, after talking it through with our team, we decided that any joke that involves deception at the moment is probably in poor taste.

So instead, we hope you enjoy firing yourself out of the cannon we have placed in the hub area in London City.   If you aim it correctly, you can fire your avatar over 2 regions distance!  Enjoy.

PS: We'll get you good and proper next year!

Clocks go forward

If your are in Britain or elsewhere in Europe, don't forget to put your clocks forward by one hour on Saturday, before you go to bed.  We'll lose an hour's sleep, but just think of all that extra sunshine we will enjoy from tomorrow evening!

Covenant Update

The London City Covenant has been updated. The full covenant is displayed here .

For those already familiar with the covenant, the only change in this revision is the following information has been added since its last amendment in October 2019:

We are living in unsettled times, where the virtual community, more than ever, has come together for companionship during forced isolation from the real world. 

We very much hope that you will find London City a great place to come and chat, chill-out and enjoy some pleasant company and conversations. 

We do not wish to curtail anyone's enjoyment and we fully realise that there is a certain kind of 'gallows humour' that some people will adopt by way of a coping strategy. 

However, we expect our patrons to act responsibly and thoughtfully as each one of us will inevitably need to adapt to a changing world and circumstances. 

Whilst Coronavirus is in no way a taboo subject, we have decided that we will not host deliberately offensive residents or potentially distressing COVID-19 based avatars, or those wearing attachments that make people cough and claim to have infected them. We view this as "broadly offensive content or conduct" and will issue one warning only to remove the attachment. Those failing to comply will have their access to the estate revoked. 

Let's keep London City in Second Life fun for everyone, at this time when we all need to use its resources, and look to each other to lift our spirits.

We hope you enjoyed the sensational Joe Dolan in Concert last night.
Today from 12pm SL (7pm UK) join us at Substation with Bailey and Coffee, and then Worlds End on the road with Katty at 2pm SL (9pm UK).

This picture from last night could not have been timed better.   Just as Joe Dolan was doing his final encore, this avatar appeared from nowhere behind him, and oh how it cracked us up!

Joe Dolan on Saturday

Continuing the Irish Festival for St Patrick's, top entertainer Joe Dolan in Concert on Saturday.

Joe Dolan was an Irish entertainer and recording artist.

He is known mainly for his flamboyant shows which include many well know standards and for his high pitched singing voice, without using falsetto, which is reminiscent of Greek singer Demis Roussos.

Whilst Joe never achieved notable chart success in America, he regularly toured the States and played a residency in Vegas.  In Ireland he is the only Irish singer to have charted in the top ten in each decade from the 1960s onwards.

Joe Dolan died in 2007, but his talents live on and whilst you may not be familiar with the singer you will certainly know the songs and enjoy Joe's rendition.

On Saturday we invite you to enjoy this remarkable entertainer at Party in The Park.

Party starts at 1pm SL (8pm  UK) and the show is an hour later at 2pm SL.

Keeping Spirits High

A message to the Community from the London City Team:

We are seeing a lot of new users and returning users to London City, and we want to assure you that we have contingency plans to keep our events and services running smoothly throughout this crisis.

First and foremost, London City is a Community, and we hope that all our regular visitors will be sympathetic to those new and returning users who are feeling isolated and just want some company.

To this end, we ask that everyone remains mindful that some people will be feeling distressed and finding their opportunities to express themselves quite limited outside of Second Life, but that they are seeking comfort.

Our team and staff, remains committed to providing as much support as possible during these times.

As a community, we hope your involvement with London City will help bolster everyone's spirits and make our joint isolation a chance to better get to know and understand one another.
