Weekend in Review - 9-11 September



On Friday London City saw the return of Neil Diamond to the stage at Madame Lala's London Revue.

Saturday provided us with the chance to try something different and I don't think anyone expected it to be as successful as it was.  Given that it was the Last Night of the Proms in real life, we decided to have a crack at it ourselves as our party in Regent's Park.  Although it was suspected that it would be something of a niche market, it proved to be so popular that we did an encore performance at Compton's on Sunday.

Thanks to everyone who made the event such a huge success and thank you for the continued support which allows us to go on producing such events for your enjoyment.

The Bank Holiday Continues....



Today, the famous Moped Race returns to Mainland London, but with a twist..  this time you're expected to jump ramps and through a flaming ring of fire.... and still stay upright.   All that for just a measly 250L, but hey its the taking part that counts, right?   Race starts at 11am PDT.  Meet at the Starting Point about 5 minutes before.



This evening we're going to be a bit sophisticated and have a cosy night in the boozer with  Quiz Night at the Star & Garter in West End, playing Name That Tune and Name the (crusty) Celebrity from 12pm Noon PDT.



Saturday was another mad day in Mainland London with 3 popular parties in one at Regent's Park.

We had an exclusive as BONEY M performed here for the first time anywhere in the grid to a packed house of people remembering their tunes from the 1970's.    Congratulations to Revanche and Tayla for a stunning show and thank you to Billy for creating a magnificent stage for the event.

Mainland London - A City on the Grow!



Mainland London continues to be a popular destination for people from all over the world and our expansion is well under way!

Regent's Park has been given a face lift and grown to accomodate the needs of visitors. The New User Experience continues to be a popular area of the park and we expect the same for the London Zoo. The animals have been ordered and are on their way from exotic locations. When they arrive they will be housed in specially created environments that will make them feel right at home. Visitors to the zoo will be treated to a day out like no other, be sure to get a free Geoffrey the Giraffe plush animal to hold and a free commemorative London Zoo balloon!

The road works are complete and new shops and attractions are being installed daily. Rezz and drive a car, walk or fly through the streets of Mainland London and you get a glimps of this vibrant thriving community. Enjoy one of the daily parties at Bar Soho or shop at one of the many merchants who call Mainland London home.

And speaking of merchants. We can't seem to build shops fast enough to accomodate them! We already have several reserved locations and are working day and night to complete these 'one of a kind' builds. Our shops and homes are bespoke and do not exist anywhere else on the grid. Should you find the same building outside of Mainland London rest assured it is a copy and not the original. With all the buzz and excitment of the expansion be sure to get your request for one of these fantastic buildings in early.


The Royal Exchange and Cannon Street Station are just two of the historic buildings we have recreated for the enjoyment of visitors to Mainland London. And we havent stopped there! Our list of historic builds continues to grow to the delight of everyone. We're not goning to tell you which buildings are going in, so you'll have to visit us every day as we have quiet a few suprises in store!

All this expnasion, plus the huge volumn of visitors makes Mainland London a city on the grow!

London Gets Bigger





The Soho region of Mainland London has just doubled in size!

Although we have added land to the West End district on a regular basis, Soho was starting to feel really cramped.

Whilst having all shops in both regions rented is great, it also meant that clients who wanted store space were unable to open their brand here as we had nothing available for them to rent.


Here in Mainland London, we were always keen to avoid the mistakes of others; ghost towns with whole sims of land, empty shops, no footfall and little to no following.   We started off small and have added land as it has been required.   However we didn't add it quick enough for Soho and we just plain ran out of room!

Today we have remedied that, by adding another half sim to the Soho district of Mainland London.

This will enable us to expand Regent's Park, add more stores, an amphitheatre, housing and better facilities for those who visit us on a regular basis.

Building work has already begun and we hope to have this additional land up and running by the month end.

Thank you for making Mainland London such a tremendous success.

Brand new concert next Saturday in Mainland London: TOM JONES.

Party goers in Mainland London were spoilt for choice at the climax to the Irish Festival week last night.

In Madame Lala's, Tina Turner took to the stage after resident comedy turn, Ruby Babylon.  There was standing room only throughout and the sim was split at the seams as more and more people came... and kept coming.

It has been a spectacular weekend at Mainland London and it's not over yet.   Events throughout the day today in our newly approved "New User Resources" area, Regent's Park (with brand new horse area!) and  DJ Rolday playing at Bar Soho again tonight from 1pm SL Time.

Neil Fills Lala's



On Saturday night a crowd packed Madame Lala's London Revue to capacity throughout the evening, long before the star turn, Neil Diamond even arrived.  People were standing on the neighbouring Soho sim to catch a glance of this legendary entertainer.

To a house packed to the rafters, Neil Diamond sang his most famous of show stopping songs whilst the revellers danced into the small hours.


As if that wasn't enough, Madame Lala introduced a brand new resident entertainer, the larger than life Ruby Babylon and told everyone to be sure to come next week to see Ruby performing stand-up.  Lala then went on to sing her latest song from the forthcoming album and was accompanied by her famous Barbette staff as she wowed the crowd with her rendition of Blanket On The Ground.

This fabulous night was pure joy for the Mainland London crew who watched both sims fill to bursting point and stay that way for the whole evening. 

Thank you for everyone who attended and for those who were not able to get into the sims, don't worry, Neil has said he will do an encore performance again soon.
