Peaky Blinders

The hit TV series Peaky Blinders has placed Birmingham and the West Midlands firmly in the national and international spotlight. But long before the BBC drama series aired, the region was already celebrating its unique and colourful past.

Who are The Peaky Blinders?

The Peaky Blinders were an urban street gang based in Birmingham and the West Midlands, operating from the end of the 19th century up until the start of the First World War. Recognised for their signature outfits of tailored jackets and peaked flat caps, the gang built themselves from social power robbery, violence, political influence and gambling to become one of the most influential gangs of that era (pretty clever eh?). So influential in fact, that writer & director Steven Knight and the BBC decided that they needed their own series.
