Can't get enough Peaky Blinders? This new show will make you feel like you're in an episode.

If you're dreading the day the hit series comes to an end, you'll love this new immersive and interactive theatre show coming next year.

This is no knock-off event, either. Details have been shared on the show's official social media account.

Called ‘Peaky Blinders: The Rise’, a link to register to receive more information as it's released has been posted.

Detail are sparse right now, but the show is due to be staged at Camden’s The Vanguard Theatre in London.

It's near Solomons Yard, which features in the show, and the new theatre production is due to begin in the summer of 2022.

The new show is brought to you by Immersive Everywhere, the team who previously created shows based on ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘The Great Gastby’.

A synopsis for the event said: “Follow the rise in fortune of Tommy Shelby and his family as the unfolding narrative and live actors place the audience right at the heart of the Shelby Company, featuring iconic locations, from the betting shop in Small Heath and The Garrison through to the bakery on the banks of Regent’s Canal, the home of the Solomons gang.”

Fans are bracing themselves for the sixth and final season early next year.

However, it's not all bad news as there's set to be a feature film, after the creator confirmed it will be set and shot in birmingham.

Show creator Stephen Knight revealed: "I am going to write the feature which will be set in and shot in Birmingham, and that will probably be the sort of the end of the road for ‘Peaky Blinders’ as we know it.”

Shooting will begin in 2023.
