London Village closes tonight after 5 successful years of fun, events, and a little mayhem.
After much consideration, we have decided to try something new and a little less intense (and expensive!) We could carry on in the comfort zone of a successful project like London Village, but both artistically and with a desire for a little less financial pressure we have collectively decided to take a step into a new future!
There are a lot of people, too many to name, I would like to thank for their hard work and dedication to the project that has been New London / London Village since 2008. Some of those people have long since moved on, some are still on the team, but every single person who made a contribution to the sim, I thank you.
To all our regular visitors, I thank you too, for without you there would have been very little point to London Village and certainly no soul.
We hope many of you will join us in our new home (which we will open very soon!) There you will find there some familiarities, a slower pace, and new areas to enjoy.
NLS will be unaffected, bar a change of location for the main store.
Thank you all for making this years London Village Festival another hugely succesful event! Join us at the Festival tonight, for our final night, as we say goodbye to London Village in style!
Wimbledon 2013 begins! I can’t believe how the time has flown by since the last Championship! Good luck to all the British players taking part – Andy Murray can do it this year! – as well as my favourite non-Brit Sabine Lisicki. Can’t wait to watch some grass court tennis!
I’m looking to freshen things up in London Village with some music gigs and some staff team changes. Ironing out the current lull… and here’s a pic of me ironing… a tenuous link I agree!
Since I stated my intention to stand down as sim runner / take a break, and the confusion over the future direction of the sim, things have changed a great deal. Not least losing several staff members for various reasons. A couple of others have chosen to reduce their role in the sim. I will not let the investments of myself, Laredo and Jon, or the time and effort of many people (the staff team) of the last 5 years be wasted on a project people now take for granted. It’s time to shake things up a bit!
