This Funzing Experience:

Who were the real Peaky Blinders? Did Tommy Shelby really exist? Join historian Prof Carl Chinn (MBE) for an captivating Funzing Talk⁠—where he'll delve into the past of the real life gang on which the TV series was based.

With its captivating cinematography, charismatic performances, and vivid title, the ‘Peaky Blinders’ series has riveted viewers and critics alike.

Set shortly after the First World War, it revolves around the dramatic rise to criminal power of Tommy Shelby and his gang of peaky blinders from the back streets of Birmingham.

The truth is just as gripping as Cillian Murphy's cheekbones. Carl will bring all the blinders to life, including the real Billy Kimber, Darby Sabini, Alfie Solomon, and more . . .
