The new series of BBC Two’s cult drama series Peaky Blinders will see the famous Birmingham gangsters going international, but not before the cast make a special trip home to the city.
On Wednesday 4th May, BBC Birmingham will welcome the cast of Peaky Blinders at an exclusive screening of the first episode of series three. The event will take place at The Everyman Cinema, Mailbox Birmingham, and the BBC is giving fans of the show a chance to be part of this very special event.
At this unmissable red carpet evening the attending cast will include Peaky Blinders’ actors Cillian Murphy (Tommy Shelby), Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby) and Packy Lee (Johnny Dogs) as well as the show’s producers and writer/creator and Birmingham born Steven Knight who will arrive at the screening in spectacular Peaky Blinders fashion.
Fans are encouraged to get into the spirit of the series by dressing up for the occasion in Peaky Blinders’ style costumes with flat caps and 1920s attire. Details of how to register for tickets to the screening will be coming soon to the BBC Shows and Tours website.
This year the cast, which also includes Helen McCrory, Joe Cole, Sophie Rundle, Finn Cole, Natasha O’Keeffe, Harry Kirton, Aimee-Ffion Edwards and Jordan Bolger will be joined by Tom Hardy who reprises his role of Alfie Solomons and new character Father Hughes played by Paddy Considine.
