The whole of the UK fell in love with Peaky Blinders when it first aired in 2013, and six-years on, lovable Brummie gangster Thomas Shelby has become a cult icon, while flat caps and sharp suits are becoming an accepted fashion statement- even on a casual day. Multiple events have cropped up over the years and it was about time for The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival to arrive and celebrate the show.
Over bank holiday weekend, Neighbourhood Weekender came back to Warrington’s Victoria Park for its second year, bringing headliners George Ezra, Richard Ashcroft, Primal Scream, The Vaccines and many more artists for the two-day event.
