Dance festivals, folksy festivals, cocktail festivals… this weekend’s got ’em all. Plus an urban beach and super-cool shopping to bootMore
OK, bear with us on this one: this new Judd Apatow-directed film follows the misadventures of a commitment-phobe revelling in one-night stands and dodging cosy domesticity at all costs. So far, so Knocked Up/Get Him To The Greek etc. But wait: what if we told you the protagonist was a woman? Now it’s getting interesting – especially as the woman in question is brash, badass comic Amy Schumer, who also wrote the script. The result is a fresh, funny and female-focused take on a tired genre – a romcom for people who don’t like romcoms, if you will. In cinemas 17 July
SHOPPING: Playground & Proof, London Fields
We’re big fans of time management, and are painfully aware that some weekends there just aren’t enough hours in the day to check out that cool little street market AND that hip new rooftop bar. But behold, here is the solution! Introducing Playground & Proof, East London’s newest outdoor space where you’ll find a courtyard market featuring pop-up record store Kartel, motorcycle apparel from Bolt, arts and crafts by Madam Chalet and, crucially, an ice-cream sandwich stall. Then head right upstairs and – ta da! – you’re at a rooftop bar overlooking London Fields, serving craft beers, specialist ciders and just plain intriguing-sounding mezcals. We just love multi-tasking.
