There will also be appearances from Peaky Blinders cast members and special guests, props from the show, Q&As with show creator Steven Knight, debates on the history, politics and social themes of Series 5 and loads more.

John Empson, Festival Director & Founder, says: “The legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival is a brand new concept which starts in Digbeth, Birmingham, the authentic birthplace of the Peaky Blinders.

“Something totally fresh in the festival market, the show will merge cinema, live music, immersive theatre, ballet, bespoke food and drink, spoken word, pop-up performances, collaborations, exclusive previews, appearances from cast members and world class special guests.

“A totally 360 degree festival experience.’”
