A miniature version of the famous Garrison Tavern pub from popular TV show ‘Peaky Blinders’ has been created in Lego, ahead of the show’s 5th series starting this Sunday 25th August.
Created by Master Model Builder Michelle Thompson at Birmingham’s Legoland Discovery Centre, the model depicts the show’s infamous pub setting, complete with secret gang headquarters and a pile of illicit cash on the table. The counting room even includes a chalkboard for tallying bets and a working, opening safe for keeping their money away from mischievous hands.
The model, created from over 1043 pieces, includes 8 Lego Minifigures representing characters from the show. Notably this includes main character Thomas Shelby, who is featured driving a horse and cart which contains barrels covering up a secret supply of ammunition, akin to his character in the show.
‘As Brummies here at the attraction we’re big fans of the show, we can’t wait for the new series to start,’ explains Master Model Builder, Michelle Thompson.
‘We thought it was only fitting to pay homage by recreating one of the famous locations in Lego!’
This Sunday the first episode of Peaky Blinders’ fifth series will air on BBC One.
The Peaky Blinders Lego model will be on display in Legoland Discovery Centre Birmingham’s Miniland, which showcases a range of the Midlands’ most iconic buildings created from over 1 million Lego bricks, also including the secret canal tunnel network featured on the show.
