Drink up in the Garrison...
A Peaky Blinders festival is set to take place in the West Midlands later this year – providing fans with the chance to live out the exploits of the Birmingham gang.
For two weekends over September 7-8 and 14-15, the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley will be transformed into the streets of 1920s Birmingham where the show is set.
Among the highlights are 1920s and ’30s-themed cocktails and music, live street theatre performances inspired by the show, and the opportunity to drink in a mock imagining of the Garrison pub, where Tommy Shelby and co are known to drown their sorrows in the show.
“Step inside the murky underworld of the Peaky Blinders as you discover their dark history”, a description teased.
“Stroll around the set for the Shelbys’ scrap metal business – Charlie’s yard – where many props used during the filming remain.”
Other highlights on offer include:
- Explore the smoky back streets and slum housing that gave birth to the notorious gang
- Head on over to the Museum’s very own ‘Garrison pub’ for a pint of real local ale
- Be a part of the roaring nightlife that characterised the interwar years and enjoy live music, entertainment and dancing
- Watch out for any fights that break out around the Museum, as this year live street theatre will bring the gun-slinging gang warfare to life before your eyes.
It’s also rather reasonable too, with £17 tickets going on sale from February 1, and you can buy them here.
Meanwhile, Peaky Blinders will return for its fifth season in 2019.
