Killer Cucumbers and Concerts



It has sure been an eventful Weekend at your favourite London destination, Mainland London.

Friday saw the delightful return of Demis Roussos wowing the crowd in Madame Lala's, with his energetic songs, including the show stopping climax, Zorba.    Everyone danced until dawn!



Demis Roussos Greek singer, best known for being the main musical partner of movie soundtrack composer and electronic musician Vangelis throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Roussos has sold over 40 million albums worldwide.






On Saturday, our friend Mapoo Little performed live in Regent's Park singing the songs of legend, Tina Turner.  

Mapoo gave an incredible performance.  Her voice was powerful and sultry, as she boomed out the classics, from Private Dancer to Nutbush.   

Being a popular destination, Regent's Park remained at full capacity throughout the evenings events including Mapoo,  Bar Soho and Madame Lala's.   As we always recommend that you arrive early to avoid disappointment!



Sunday morning's Coffee and Donut Kickstart saw the early birds gather in the park for the a catch-up on the weekend.  This early morning gathering is particularly popular with those who for various reasons were unable to attend the night before, but want to know how it went and if there is any gossip!




A Killer Cucumber was discovered at the Sunday Kickstart, but was promptly detonated.



Due to dodgy stock, the afternoons Coffin Race was held over to the following weekend, when an unfortuate side effect was discovered sending people a few million feet into the air.


By the time we had all found each other again, black storm clouds had gathered on the horizon and we thought it was probably time to take cover.  The sun was well and truly over the yard-arm, so we rode the bus to the Star & Garter pub, to start the evening off with a Pub Quiz and an old movie that everyone could either watch or pull to pieces.  The movie last night was from 1937, Will Hay in "Oh, Mister Porter".
