Even though the show has officially wrapped, that’s no reason not to get your Peaky Blinders fix - and this year you’ll be able to get up close and personal with the characters like never before.

That’s right, the new immersive Peaky Blinders experience is coming to London. Called Peaky Blinders: The Rise, it promises to deliver an action-packed night on the town, where visitors will be able to drink, dance and plot the hours away.

Intrigued? Here’s everything you need to know about the hottest new ticket in London. (By order of the Peaky Blinders. Naturally.)

Where is the Peaky Blinders: The Rise?

It’s not often that a live event gets to take place in the same location as the film set - but that’s exactly what’s on the cards for Peaky Blinders: The Rise.

Located in Camden Garrison, it is just moments away from the setting for Solomons’ Yard, the home of the infamous London grifter Alfie Solomons (played by Tom Hardy). Hit the cobblestones and enjoy the atmosphere!

What’s the premise?

Guests to the new experience will find themselves plunged into 1920s London (circa series two), as Tommy Shelby fights to gain control of London city.

The event’s synopsis offers plenty of intrigue for both the casual and devoted fan to get stuck into.

“With the approval of north London kingpin, Alfie Solomons, Tommy personally invites you to a family meeting at the Shelbys’ Camden warehouse,” it reads.

“Tommy has a plan that could prove lucrative for everyone, and it promises to be a night of celebration.

“Whether you kick back in the Camden Garrison Pub with Arthur, advise Tommy on his business affairs in his office, or conspire with the Italians in the Eden Club, how the family meeting goes is for you to decide. However, you must keep your eyes open and your ear to the ground.

“Tommy’s enemies are closer than you think, and they may want to make you an offer you’ll find hard to refuse.”

What else can you expect?

In addition to soaking in the atmosphere (and taking in the props, many of which have been taken directly from the set of the show), there’ll be plenty of opportunities to do some double-dealing with the extensive cast.

These include Tommy Shelby himself (played by Craig Hamilton), Arthur Shelby (Kieran Mortell) and Aunt Polly (Emma Stansfield).

The show’s director, Tom Maller, has also dropped plenty of hints about what visitors will be able to enjoy.

“Our audience are integral to what we’re creating, our audience will play a key part of our show. They will have agency,” he explained at a recent press event.

“In this show we’re going to push the limits with anything that we’ve done before, in any immersive show. We’re going to create multiple outcomes, multiple finales to the show.

“So the audience’s actions and their choices over two and a half hours have a direct effect on the ending of the show.”

In practice, this means that audience members will be able to pick their side, using fake in-game money to place bets, play cards - and finance their preferred gang. Will they choose to side with the Shelbys? Or will they switch allegiances and start working for Alfie Solomons - or even the Italians?

“Whichever gang ends up with the most amount of money - money is power - will run London,” Maller warns. “It’s a fight to run London.”

Colour us excited.
