Feel A Bit Peaky In Brum
Peaky Blinders has just returned for a fifth season and fans can attend a new festival celebrating the show, according to our friends at Radio Times…
Co-curated by show creator Steven Knight, the celebration of the BBC gangster series promises fans an immersive recreation – and will include appearances from a few mystery cast members.
The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival – taking place in the streets, warehouses and factories in Digbeth, Central Birmingham on 14th and 15th September – promises theatre, live music and fashion inspired by the show, plus a cinema screening, five stages of music featuring the likes of Primal Scream, a reimagined Garrison Tavern, a museum, poetry and even a Peaky Blinders ballet.
It’s is also set to feature live recreations of Peaky Blinders scenes involving 200 actors.
Show creator Steven Knight, who is set to appear in a live Q&A with the show’s stars, said: “It will be a festival of live music, performance, poetry, immersive theatre and experiences which will celebrate the swagger of the men and women who walked these same Digbeth streets one hundred years ago.
“Expect the unexpected, expect 1919 to come crashing into 2019 and, be assured, everything is officially by order of the Peaky Blinders.”
Tickets for the festival go on sale Friday 9th September at 10am here.
