Man Up is the brilliant new comedy about taking chances - Films in London

Nancy is 34, single, and spends a lot of time recovering from the night before. Whilst fending off a nearly permanent hangover, Nancy also has to battle away her well-meaning friends, whose numerous unsubtle attempts to match-make are now getting a little old. Exhausted from a seemingly endless series of dates with various bachelors that she couldn’t be less suited to, Nancy has grown weary of the dating game. But when she travels to London to celebrate her parents’ wedding anniversary, Nancy somehow finds herself on a date with 40-year-old divorcee, Jack. Still healing the wounds of his recent divorce, Jack mistakes Nancy for a 24-year-old woman he was expecting to have a blind date with. In a moment of madness, Nancy finds herself on a date with Jack, instead of doing the rational thing and setting the story straight. What follows is an unconventional (and chaotic) evening of romance, drinking, lost divorce papers, a brief stint of indoor competitive sports and a brush with a former crush who’s just crawled out of the woodwork… all before Jack ever discovers who Nancy really is. Simon Pegg (Star Trek: Into Darkness, The World’s End) stars as Jack alongside Lake Bell (In a World…, Million Dollar Arm) in this unconventional rom-com.

Hundreds take part in National Gallery rally

Hundreds of people have taken part in a rally in Trafalgar Square against plans to privatise the National Gallery.
Rally in Trafalgar Square
Around 200 members of the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union are in the middle of a ten-day strike, which affected the half-term holiday.
There will have been 34 days of action on Thursday since February, but the current strike is the longest so far.
Film maker Ken Loach and Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Wallinger supported the rally.
Mr Wallinger told the crowds: "In this world arts and music are given no value and our great cultural institutions are viewed as unproductive corporations and the rights of the people who work there are being cut out by this government."
The PCS said the action was against plans to privatise 400 visitor services roles and the dismissal of union rep Candy Udwin, who was accused of sharing information about the use of a private security firm.
More than 21,000 people have added their names to a statement calling for Ms Udwin to be reinstated.
Artists Grayson Perry, Mark Wallinger, Ryan Gander and Peter Kennard have signed a separate letter calling for a halt to privatisation plans, according to the union.
PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: "The National Gallery is a much-loved institution and it must be stopped from damaging its own reputation."
The gallery, where government aid makes up nearly three quarters of its funding, said privatisation plans would enable it to introduce a new roster to "operate more flexibly", adding there would be no job cuts.
"We believe the proposed changes are essential to enable us to deliver an enhanced service to our six million annual visitors for many years to come, and to remain as one of the world's leading art galleries," a gallery statement said.
"In addition, the National Gallery has just announced it will pay the London Living Wage."
With regards to the dismissal of Ms Udwin, the gallery, which is owned and operated by the National Gallery Trust, said it did not comment on individual disciplinary cases.
The latest strike started on 26 May and is due to end on 4 June.

Rise of the urban beekeeper: London rallies to plight of the humble honeybee Thousands install urban hives to help honeybees under threat

Londoners are rallying to protect the honeybee with growing numbers of residents installing hives in their gardens. The number of people in the capital hosting their own colonies has more than doubled in five years to 3,500 following high-profile campaigns to save the bees.
Bitten by the bug: the Standard’s Lizzie Edmonds tries her hand at beekeeping (Picture: Glenn Copus)
The Co-Operative’s Plan Bee drive, launched to combat the decline in pollinating insects, says honeybee numbers have fallen by up to 30 per cent in recent years, with worldwide bee populations in similar decline.
The British Beekeepers Association says an average of 9.6 colonies in every 100 perished between October 2013 and March last year — double the number that should be lost in winter. A loss of habitat and rising pollution are thought to be chiefly to blame.
Paul Webb, 37, and Chris Barnes, 40, founders of Barnes & Webb which installs and manage hives in London, said they are having to turn people away as demand soars.
Hive-makers Chris Barnes and Paul Webb (Picture: Glenn Copus)
They have installed 40 hives since 2012, half of them in the past 12 months, mostly in north-east London. The honey sells in Selfridges and other London stores.
Mr Webb, from Stoke Newington, said: “A lot of people in London are aware of the plight of the bees and want to help. Hosting hives obviously helps.”
Rebecca McClelland, 40, a photo editor who lives in Hackney with her husband Chris Robert, 43, a Central Saint Martins course director, and her 18-month-old son, is a Barnes & Webb customer. She said: “Londoners are very aware of the problems facing wildlife and want to help conservation.”
Some experts say there is not enough food in the city’s parks and gardens to sustain the surge, which they blame in part on “celebrity beekeepers” such as BBC Radio 4’s The World At One presenter Martha Kearney.
Rebecca McClelland, pictured with husband Chris Robert and her son, has installed a hive in their Hackney garden

Tim Lovett, of The British Beekeepers Association, said: “There is a limit to the amount of forage in urban settings. Once that is finished, bees are looking at concrete. The number of hives needs to be monitored.”
Mr Webb added: “We only put hives in areas we know they can thrive in. You can’t have too many in one area or it will become overpopulated.” Barnes & Webb is working with J Crew’s Save the Bees campaign and has put five hives designed by New York artist Donald Robertson in the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton to encourage Londoners to learn more about urban beekeeping. Half the money from sales of special  J Crew T-shirts, available in-store and online, goes to the Bug Life charity.

90 Piccadilly Mayfair London! W1J - Opens 6th of June to 21st June

Show by Paul Oz.

A true ’80s KID’ himself, Paul Oz has carefully selected more than twenty characters from politics and pop-culture to give a stunning overview and celebration of the decade that saw the birth of MTV and the release of Star Wars. Leaving no stone unturned, even the iconic Rubix Cube features in ’80s KID’, allowing visitors to reminisce and relive their favourite elements of the 1980s.
Oz’s technique of carving paint onto the canvas creates many-layered artworks with a unique depth and energy. His ‘explosive’ style is unlike any we have seen before, and really must be seen firsthand. A highly sought-after artist, ’80s KID’ will exhibit the only Oz artworks currently exhibiting and available for sale in the world!

Following the hugely successful ‘Return of the Rudeboy’ exhibition last year that explored the swagger and significance of the 21st century British Rudeboy, the creators – prolific music photographer Dean Chalkley and renowned fashion creative director Harris Elliott – are now bringing this sartorial subculture to life in a brand new coffee table book.
Collaborating with British electronics brand, Goodmans, the book will be launched at the specially curated ‘Rudeboy Salon’ space at London’s Hospital Club open to the public on the 5th & 6th June. The ‘Rudeboy Salon’ will also be home to the newly designed Goodmans art installation by Rudeboy artist Andrew Ibi.

The ‘Salon’ will give a an insight into the world of the 21st century Rudeboy with photographs, screenings, a panel discussion and live Djs. Stay tuned for further announcements and details of events.
As the Rudeboy style was closely connected to the music movements of 1950s American Jazz and R&B, Chalkley and Elliott have teamed up with Goodmans, whose radios and speakers have been in the hands and homes in Britain for over 80 years.
Aside from supporting the creation of the coffee table book of photographs of over 60 sharply dressed individuals from across the UK, another unique aspect of the event will be the unveiling of the “ Return of the Rudeboy x Goodmans Sound Installation’. Artist and ‘Rudie’ himself Andrew Ibi has created the art and sound installation made of an impressive stack 90 Goodmans heritage radios, designed and appropriated with his distinctive hand-drawn artwork. The imposing tower will also play a soundtrack of tunes and spoken dialogue that capture the sound and soul of this urban group.

The collaboration with Dean Chalkley and Harris Elliott is a further step in the Goodmans Series – a series of collaborations that support the creative individuals of British culture. As a brand that has spanned decades and is ever immersed in music, Goodmans is well placed to look back and champion British heritage. That said, in a cultural climate that is more diverse than ever, it is ever more important to look at contemporary subcultures and those who are creating it today. In the same vein, the ‘Rudeboy Salon’, will pay respect to the heritage and importance of the past, but focus on the present and future Rudeboy.
