Peaky Blinders Festival Reveal Guest Cast Members And Day Splits

Wednesday, 04 September 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Day splits and the full line up have been confirmed for the Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival in Birmingham.

The two-day event will take place at Digbeth Arena on September 14 and 15, with 200 actors recreating scenes from the television programme live in the streets, warehouses and factories of Digbeth.

Show creator Steven Knight's Q&A will also feature major cast members and director Anthony Byrne. Those attending can expect to see Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby), Finn Cole (Michael Gray), Kate Phillips (Linda Shelby) and Paddy Considine (Father John Hughes). It has also been confirmed that Cilian Murphy will bring Thomas Shelby to life via a live stream.

A description of the event reads: 

"Set in 1928, the Shelby family are comfortably set in unchallenged position in their native Birmingham and Thomas Shelby is an elected Member of Parliament and spokesman for the working man, living in London.

"And today, the Peaky Blinders are raising money for the Shelby Foundation and the Grace Shelby Institute by inviting all Digbeth's citizens to a street fair and festival.

"However, the peace can only hold so long, as the romany Lee family, Irish O'Carrolls, the police and even Women's Rights activists rub shoulders with the Peaky Blinders in a gambling den and boxing ring at The Warehouse, the romany encampment in The Yard and The Ruin pub.

"Expect explosive drama unfolding right around you."

The music line up for the event will see Primal Scream headlining Saturday joined by a mystery global superstar and friend of Peaky Blinders. Sunday, meanwhile, will see the bill topped by Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, with support from Slaves.
