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.

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.

GOODMANS X RETURN OF THE RUDEBOY COLLABORATE TO OPEN ‘RUDEBOY SALON’ - HOSPITAL CLUB, LONDON; 5TH-6TH JUNE 2015
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 . 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.
On Thursday 4th June, we're ‘set’ to transform into a hub of fun-raising activity as we celebrate One Great Day in support of the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.
