Peaky Blinders Festival

On September 14th and 15th, Birmingham celebrates the television show that has catapulted its history to a global audience. Now, the show’s creator, stars, famous fans and its home city come together to create a spectacular, immersive and ‘legitimate’ event in its honour...

The Legitimate Peaky Blin-ders Festival will bring together immersive theatre, live music and fashion inspired by the series, a cine-ma showing, a museum, food, drink, poetry and more.

With 5 stages of music, live recreations of Peaky Blinders scenes involving 200 actors, fashion shows and men's grooming - fans will be living in the show’s world encompassing the Digbeth, Central Birmingham area.

Using its historic streets, warehouses and factories and employing lighting, sound, smoke, video mapping and special effects, the post World War 1 era will come to life for an unmissable day.

Artists confirmed across the weekend include Primal Scream, Anna Calvi, Slaves, Nadine Shah, a BBC Introducing Stage and a host of excellent music performances, reflecting one of the sharpest soundtracks on television.

Martin Coat, the creative mind behind Boomtown and immersive theatre specialists Dank Parish, bring the world of Peaky Blinders to life, taking over the streets of Birmingham. Expect close up entertainment and immerse yourself in the underbelly of early 20th century Birmingham and all the high hitting drama of the Peaky Blinders world.

Contemporary dance company Rambert will perform a specially commissioned performance, choreographed for the festival by artistic director Benoit Swan Pouffer. Steven Knight will reveal all in a live Q&A, also featuring the show’s stars.

Following the Kent and Curwen catwalk show in January 2019 where the collaboration with hit series Peaky Blinders was first shown, Kent and Curwen are proud to announce their involvement in the Peaky Blinders Festival 2019. VIP ambassadors will be dressed in the Kent and Curwen x Peaky Blinders collection. Kent and Curwen’s creative Director Daniel Kearns will host a conversation, discussing ‘The Peaky Look’ and how to achieve this with Kent and Curwen collaboration.

In addition, there will be a fashion show from Steven Knight’s Garrison Tailors clothing range, plus the show’s influ-ence on modern style will be reflected in onsite tailoring and men’s grooming.

BLOC Hotels Birmingham

The BLOC philosophy is new to the UK. The concept is called pared-down chic and is based on ideas we’ve adapted from the best designers around the world. By injecting a little British creativity, we have been pushing the boundaries of hotel design. From the build right down to the finishes in each room, we work with cutting-edge materials and innovative thinkers whose mantra really is, small is beautiful.

The idea is to build very cleverly using the very best materials whilst still making it as cost-effective as possible. And that means we can offer our guests really chic rooms in prime city centre locations at very, very good prices.
