Stay in and watch: Les Parapluie De Cherbourg for colour co-ordination like you have never seen. This beautiful French film starring Catherine Deneuve inspired La La Land and has a soundtrack to light you up in the dark winter. It's my favourite film, full of flirtation and flamboyant colour.
Go out and see: MANWATCHING this February; a super sassy feminist monologue with the most colourful language. Every night a different male comedian reads a piece about love, lust and fantasy written by an anonymous female playwright. The Royal Court's hit goes on tour from 8–24 Feb at venues around the UK. royalcourttheatre.com
Explore: Backstage at The Royal Opera House for colours and creations to blow your mind. From touching the tutus to selfies with the sets, it is an affordable and fabulous treat.
