Weekend in Review - 13-14 August

As weekends go in London City, things proved to be even more wild than usual.  There were the regular parties in Bar Soho and Madame Lala's London Revue on Friday to put us in the mood for the weekend.

Saturday marked the first anniversary of London Soho.  There was a fun fair in Regent's Park and three events!  We started off with DJ Torric warming the crowd up.

Best in Union Jack - and check out that cake on the stage!

The evening then got fully underway with London City favourite Mapoo Little.  Ms Little came fully prepared with a gorgeous gown, a range of sets and her big voice.  She wowed the assembled revellers with a selection of classic Motown tunes.

After Mapoo's concert, everyone moved back over to the birthday stage (complete with huge cake) to dance the night away to the tunes of DJ SW Easterwood, who usually only pleasures us aurally here in London City on a Wednesday at Bar Soho.

As usual on a Sunday, we had our early morning chillout with coffee and doughnuts at the Hub, before everyone got their dancing sandals on for an impromptu toga party with the lovely Demis Roussos warbling his way though the afternoon.  If you ever come to London City for one of Demis' concerts, watch out for his friend...the wind; you could get blown away by the performance!

To round the birthday weekend off in a classy but laidback style at Comptons pub, the lovely Britt McMahon took to the stage with a tribute to one of the rat pack's finest, Mr Dean Martin.

Incidentally, Britt is back on Saturday 20th August for a tribute to Billy Joel!

Happy birthday London's to another fantastic year!
