Peaky Blinders Filming at the Museum

Peaky B

20 March 2014

BBC epic gangster drama Peaky Blinders made a visit to the Black Country Living Museum recently to shoot scenes for the upcoming second instalment of the popular 1920s set Birmingham series. 

 The majority of the filming took place within the Museum’s Canal Arm, taking on a Post WWI transformation into regular character Charlie Strong’s Small Heath based Scrap Metal Yard. Production staff were on hand for three days prior to filming to alter the usual layout with unique props and special effects including the complex movement of the Museum’s designated boat collection.

 The Blacksmith Forge fiery scenes took over the interior build of the Museum’s Rolling Mill; resident chain and nail maker Kevin Lowe and Steve Grainger were specifically requested by filmmakers  to demonstrate their metal bashing skills to cast members and also feature as extras in the historic drama.  

The series has recently  won best Drama Series at the Royal Television Society Awards. Don't miss the second installment which will air on BBC Two this autumn.
