STUDENTS were transported back to the “Jazz Age” for a Roaring Twenties knees-up that would have made the Peaky Blinders gang proud!

Baker boy caps, tweed and tailored jackets were in vogue at Loughborough University after Area 51 recreated the mood of the famous Birmingham street gang who have been since immortalised thanks to the hit TV show.

The company created a set of stunning props and scenery pieces to provide the perfect ambiance for a “Peaky Blinders” themed ball and then Area 51 sent in a detachment of walkabout performers and specialist entertainers including contortionists, showgirl dancers, fire breathers and stilt-walkers to complete the whole package.

Among the décor were large champagne glasses to house female performers and scenery that captures the spirit and mood of the Brummie backstreets of Small Heath from the 1920s era. Guests arriving at the ball entered the venue a large brick tunnel walk-way into and a garden tunnelled exit.

It took almost five intense working days to create the full venue transformation which wowed everyone who attended.
