World Premiere of Peaky Blinders returns to Birmingham this summer with a red carpet, fan screening and cast Q&A. The hotly anticipated fifth series of Peaky Blinders is returning to BBC One later this year. But for fans who can’t wait that long, BBC Birmingham and BBC One are hosting an exclusive world premiere in Birmingham.
On Thursday 18 July fans can get a sneak preview of the first episode before anyone else at Birmingham Town Hall, and get a chance to see their show favourites with a spectacular red carpet event. They’ll then be able to put their questions to the cast and creators with a special question and answer panel straight after the first episode.
Series 5 of the BAFTA award-winning drama finds the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929. Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere. When Tommy Shelby MP (Cillian Murphy) is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family’s future but that of the entire nation.
Creator Steven Knight, comments, “Birmingham is of course my first choice for the world premiere, the cast and crew love it here. Birmingham is the epicentre for the show and it means so much to me to come back here year after year and start the series with a bang. This year we’re at the Town Hall, which is a great venue, with more fans than ever before able to see the programme. I can’t wait to see everyone’s reactions on the night.”
