1. Watch a feelgood movie

The Colour Purple, from 26 January, save up to 37% through The Cinema Society

 The Colour Purple

If you’re in a bit of a slump after Christmas, beat the winter blues by going to see The Colour Purple. At cinemas from 26 January, this feelgood drama is based on the stage musical of the same name, which in turn is based on Alice Walker’s classic coming-of-age novel. Telling the story of an African-American woman who battles adversity while living in the Deep South, Blitz Bazawule’s all-singing, all-dancing epic has been described as “food for the soul”.

As a Boundless member, you can save up to 37% when you buy movie tickets, snacks and drinks through The Cinema Society. Find out more here.

2. Celebrate Burns Night

During these fun and fascinating 90-minute sessions, you’ll learn about the history and diversity of this traditional tipple – and also get to sample five different variations from Scotland’s most prestigious distilleries.

Just For One Day, from 26 January, save 10% through Boundless Tickets

Live Aid was one of the most iconic events in rock music history, bringing some of the world’s biggest performers together in one massive musical crusade against poverty. Well, now you can relive those legendary 1985 concerts thanks to a new play, Just For One Day. Showing at London’s Old Vic Theatre from 26 January, this poptastic production focuses on both the on-stage heroics and the people who were united by this momentous occasion. With music by Queen, David Bowie, Status Quo, The Who and many more artists, it promises to get those toes tapping.
