A cheque for £1,175 was presented to Acorns Children’s Hospice today after two Peaky Blinders scripts were auctioned off at Black Country Living Museum on 9 and 10 Sep.

Hundreds of Peaky Blinders fans gathered at the charity auction during the Museum’s Peaky Blinders Nights to bid for the two unique pieces of memorabilia, both of which featured personal handwritten messages from writer Steven Knight.

The two script package contained the very first, unnamed pilot with a handwritten note from Steven saying “this is where it all began. A long journey that continues on. Tommy and the family say: enjoy reading this by order of the Peaky Blinders! All the best, Steve Knight.” The second, a full script for season two, episode six entitled ‘Grace’s Secret’ features another personal message from the writer: “this episode is the story of Tommy’s Miraculous escape. Tommy and the family order you to enjoy the read by order of the Peaky Blinders! Best wishes, Steven Knight.

Bidding started at £100, with Director & Chief Executive Andrew Lovett taking to the podium and leading the auction. It quickly escalated with one script going for £650 and the other going for £525, raising a hefty sum for Steve Knight’s chosen charity Acorns Children’s Hospice.

Steve Knight has sent a message to say he is really delighted that the Peaky Blinders evenings at the Museum went so well and he hopes they can become a regular occurrence. Steven wrote to us to let us know he is busy writing Series 4 which will be back at the Museum next year with lots more wild adventures to come.
