By order of the Peaky Blinders, Escape Live will officially open the doors to its two new escape rooms on Tuesday, September 24.
The two new Peaky Blinders escape experiences, The Raid and Double Cross will spin off the show’s story lines, while as part of the redevelopment, Escape Live Birmingham will have a new breakout area with a licensed bar, designed with 1920s decor.
Jas Sodhi, managing director at Escape Live, commented: “We are really looking forward to getting the doors open to our new establishment and the Peaky Blinders escape rooms. A lot of work has gone into making both rooms as authentic to the show as possible and we are looking forward to both Peaky Blinders fans and escape room enthusiasts getting in to the rooms and experiencing it for themselves.
“With the last episode of series five of Peaky Blinders just aired, we wanted to make sure that we could bring the experiences to Birmingham first of all but we do have plans to roll out these Peaky Blinders rooms across the UK so that all fans get to experience being part of the Shelby clan.”
The escape room experience is the result of a collaboration between the midlands-based company, Escape Live, and the global content creator, producer and distributor, Endemol Shine Group. alongside with Peaky Blinders brand owner, content creator and series producer Caryn Mandabach Productions.
Jane Smith, group director, brand licensing and gaming, Endemol Shine Group, added: “Peaky Blinders fans love to participate in events and experiences that make them feel part of the show. We are delighted to bring fans a unique adventure with these first official escape rooms in partnership with Escape Live.”
