Tommy Shelby And Gang Head To The East Midlands
♦ One of the BBC’s most popular dramas, period gangster series Peaky Blinders starring Cillian Murphy, has run for four seasons already and news has just reached us that there will be a pop-up bar around Nottingham this March themed around the show. Newspaper The Nottingham Post has the details…
A Peaky Blinders pop-up bar is coming to Nottingham, and Leicester too.
A two-hour “immersive speakeasy bar experience” will be popping up in a secret location in the region this March, where fans of the BBC series will be able to dive into the world of the drama
On the night of the event, fans will be transported back into the post-WWI era.
A live 1920s swing band will be performing to recreate the sounds of the time, while fans will also experience interactive acting and dancing from a cast of professionals. Ticket buyers are also being asked to get in on the theme by attending in period dress, including flat caps, braces and bow ties for men, with long skirts, blouses and evening dresses for women.
There will be two pop-up nights taking place next month, as the event is scheduled for both March 23 and March 24 with four two-hours slots available to choose from on each night.
Though the top-secret location hasn’t yet been announced publicly, the venue will exclusively be revealed to event goers after they’ve purchased tickets.
But if that’s not enough Peaky Blinders for you, the pop-up bar isn’t the only place you can experience the TV phenomenon in the region.
The Three Horse Shoes pub on Derby Road, Ilkeston, is set to be converted into a bar dedicated to the series next month.
The pub will be adopting a 1920s theme as a nod to the BBC series, and will also make use of Peaky Blinders memorabilia and prints as décor.
But if you’re willing to travel just a little further to get your Peaky Blinders fix, around 90 minutes away at the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley (where the programme is filmed) is the Peaky Blinders festival , which even includes live street theatre to rally transport fans back to 1919.
