The Hideout

This year marks the BBCs 100th year and, to celebrate, a host of displays in the Floral Marquee will be inspired by popular BBC programmes. Find out more about Alexandra Froggatts’ feature, inspired by the Peaky Blinders.

Don’t miss this moody and industrial garden inspired by the BBC period gang drama, Peaky Blinders, with antique artefacts used from the Black Country Living Museum to give an authentic feel.

In the show, the Shelby family use the old dock yard to ship their goods around the country and to host ‘meetings’ with rival gangs. Inspired by this space, this garden has a battered and weathered shack, which you could imagine the Shelby family’s head, Tommy, heading back to after striking a business deal. The shack has a safe for his cash, is used to store guns and whatever else they needed to hide! A worn cobble path leads up to the shack and wild, naturalistic planting is evocative of self seeded planting around a working yard.

A horse drawn ‘gettaway’ cart is set on dirty, coal covered ground… and the table is set for a hard earned Whiskey!
