Peaky Talks will be back on the 20th September and will take you on a dark journey of discovery: A journey about poverty, crime and gangs which still has a resonance in the 21st century.
Set at the fantastic Mockingbird Theatre, Peaky Talks will bring to life the real gangs that terrorised the racecourses of England in the 1920s and the real gang leaders. With a fantastic variety of beverages on offer. Sit back and relax as the we transport you back to the 1890s and early 1900s, recounting the story of the real peaky blinder gangs. You will be sat only a few yards from where the term “Peaky Blinder” first came to light!
Peaky Talks will the conclude the Real Peaky Blinders story by telling you about the violent and bloody gang war that erupted on the racecourses of southern England in 1921. Furthermore, explain what happened to the gangs and their leaders in later life. We will then take any questions you may have.
After Peaky Talks, you will also get the chance to buy merchandise including the Prof. Carl Chinn’s best-selling book, with an opportunity to have your photo taken with him and get your book signed. *Please check speaker for the evening.
