The television series of Peaky Blinders may have come to an end after the last episode of series 6 aired last month, but there are plenty of plans in place to keep maintain the show’s legacy.

The show’s creator Steven Knight has noted his desire to transfer the Peaky Blinders’ tale onto the big screen and confirmed a film will follow the final series.

The Shelbys are also set to make their stage debut as part of the upcoming dance adaptation, Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby. This production will be a collaboration with Rambert dance company and will feature a cast of 20 and a live band playing specially commissioned music.

But there’s also a brand new Peaky Blinders immersive theatre show called The Rise, which will be available to see in London very soon at the Camden Garrison. It pledges to put the audience at the heart of one of the world’s most popular TV series and it’s presented in collaboration with Steven Knight.

Here’s everything we know so far about the production.

The Peaky Blinders season 6 finale will be 81 minutes long

What’s the show about?

You wouldn’t necessarily expect to see the hard men of Birmingham converted into theatre, but the gangsters’ story is now being brought to life on the stage.

Peaky Blinders: The Rise, is the first official fully immersive 360-degree theatre show set in the world of the Birmingham gangsters.

360 theatre is created with a camera system that simultaneously records all the scenes in 360 degree.

The show will follow the rise in fortune of Tommy Shelby and his family as the unfolding narrative and live actors place the audience right at the heart of the Shelby Company, featuring iconic locations, from the betting shop in Small Heath and The Garrison through to the bakery on the banks of Regent’s Canal.

Tommy personally invites you to a family meeting at the Shelby’s Camden warehouse, where he has a plan that could prove lucrative for everyone.

The show is a collaboration with Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and Caryn Mandabach Productions.

As the story unfolds you will experience live sets, unmissable character interactions, and even competitive game.
