Thomas Shelby’s stylish crime family has exposed the world to Birmingham in an unprecedented way, the sharp suits and even sharper blades of The Peaky Blinders, not to mention Cillian Murphy’s gorgeous face, have piqued interest in the city and its vast heritage. Tapping into this Brumgeist comes an exciting immersive festival taking place at the renovated Rainbow pub in Digbeth and Adderley Street, which will feature an incredible 100 actors and musicians in period costume recreating the old Peaky stomping grounds. Fill your boots with contemporary Blinder’s ales and street food, get dizzy on the funfair, let loose at live boxing, enjoy raucous music hall and there’s even the chance to get your fortune told. Suit up, undercut that hair, look out for Chester Campbell and his goons, and enjoy the ‘good’ old days in style.
Sat 29 Sep & Sun 30 Sep 12pm – 10pm at The Rainbow, Adderley St, Birmingham B9 4ED £32.70 www.peakyblindersfestivals.com
