Oh, Peaky Blinders fans, you’re in for a treat.

As we’re all sat patiently waiting for series five to land on our screens in just a few weeks’ time, a huge two-day festival celebrating the BAFTA Award-winning BBC Drama in all its glory has been announced – and we cannot wait.  

The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival will bring the show’s creators, stars and famous fans together in its home city at Digbeth Arena on Saturday 14 and Sunday, September 15.

With five stages to explore, ticket holders will be able to experience the show they know and love like never before in an immersive experience that will feature live music from huge local acts including a DJ set from Mike Skinner (The Streets), Slaves and Primal Screen, a BBC Introducing Stage and plenty more.

Beyond the live music, you can catch a cinema showing, take a walk around a museum, indulge in delicious food and drink, poetry, fashion that was inspired by the show and so much more. There will even be a Q&A session from the show’s creator, Steven Knight, plus appearances from cast members.

Want a bit of action? Live recreations of iconic Peaky Blinders scenes will also be happening across the two days, with more than 200 actors getting involved. And to make the experience as immersive as possible, the organisers of the festival will be using the streets of Digbeth, warehouses, factories, lights and special effects to make the post-World War One era come to life.
