What with Our Cilla on stage last week and Sir Cliff last night, it is a veritable feast of British Talent!?
Enjoy highlights of the shows with the Video Review!
Friday, November 18, 2016
There were two main acts that dominated Britain in the 1960's. One was the Beatles, the other was Cilla.
Whilst perhaps not quite as tuneful as Dusty or Sandy, our Cilla had an appeal to those who were waiting for the next big thing to emerge from Liverpool and the Beatles fans catapulted her into super stardom.
Singing all her hits and some that weren't - Don't miss this most famous icon of the 60s on Saturday in London City. The party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL.

JOE DOLAN in London City 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 12pm SL (8pm UK) and the show is an hour later at 1pm SL.

|Guy Fawkes - Loved to Party|
Let's have a potted history...
5th November, also known as Bonfire Night.
Back in 1605, Guido Fawkes and his croanies wanted to protest on how Catholics were treated.
So they decided that they would try to blow up the Houses of Parliament, in particular the House of Lords, by smuggling in hundreds of gunpowder kegs into the cellar for a firework display of their own and try detonating them on 5th November as the King (James I) was opening Parliament.
Unfortunately for Guy Fawkes, one of his gang was a lag and would blab when he got smashed and word soon spread all over town about this amazing party they were planning. They were caught in the act without so much as a roman candle going off.
|Penny for the Guy?|
In those days execution was considered as a fitting punishment for minor crimes like stealing a loaf of bread. So they decided on a more fitting punishment and decided to chop Guy Fawkes into bits, hang him for a couple of minutes, disembowel him and do other unmentionable things to embarrass him whilst he was still alive.
Since petty crime only resulted in the severing of limbs and sometimes being boiled in oil, this gruesome torture of being 'hung drawn and quartered' was reserved exclusively for traitors.
Whilst Guy Fawkes was a bit of a shit, he is also widely regarded as a person who knew how to Party.
This is still observed on 5th November every year, when people of Great Britain, literally burn money they don't have and cheer as they see it go up in flames and whoosh into the air and erupt as fireworks.. whilst those who are more sensible collect old logs, burn and effigy called a Guy and create a massive bonfire to roast their chestnuts.
London City invites you to celebrate Bonfire Night (and burning of an appropriate effigy), on Saturday at 1pm SL (8pm UK) and there's more..... WILLIAM SHATNER in CONCERT!

On 30th October 1938 long before television, CBS broadcast a radio version of The War of The Worlds.
They mentioned several times at the start of the show that it was a dramatization.
The format of the show was that of a light music program, constantly interrupted by reporters giving an account of the aliens progressive invasion.
What the network had overlooked was that the average radio listener to jump stations throughout the evening.
As the play continued, more and more people tuned in to the War of The Worlds broadcast without realising it was a play. Furthermore the radio broadcast had used real town names instead of fictitious ones, and one by one each town fell into the hands of the Martians.
Panic ensued as whole towns, swept in waves of hysteria, packed their possessions and fled to surrounding areas.
A suicide was reported as one woman said she would rather die than be taken by the Martians. In another town there was a fatal stampede as residents desperate to leave trampled each other.
The following morning CBS were forced to hold a press conference to explain themselves and to apologize for the duress they had subjected their listeners to.
Ultimately with such intense press coverage, this catapulted the actor who has played the lead reporter, a young and unknown Orson Welles, into super-stardom. Just three short years later, he wrote, produced, directed and starred in Citizen Kane.
Join us in
on Saturday 29th October for the interactive stage show version of this most famous of classics. London
Our evening begins with a huge mass of luminous gas erupting from Mars and heading towards Earth.
Across two-hundred-million miles of void, invisibly hurtling towards us, is the first of the missiles that will bring so much calamity.
Be part of this show. Come dressed however you like, but to be in the cast and to dance on the stage, please wear turn of the century or steampunk clothing. Men in cloth caps and working clothes, ladies in bustles or bonnets, or as maids. Circa anytime between 1880 to 1940.
The event starts at 12pm SL Time (8pm UK)
