If you fancy taking a step back in time to welcome in the new year, then Peaky Blinders Manchester has got you covered.
With December right around the corner, things are starting to feel a whole lot more festive around the city centre, and Peaky Blinders Manchester – the ever-popular Peter Street venue – has got a jam-packed calendar of events running in the lead-up to Christmas.
But to help Mancunians celebrate New Year’s Eve in style, the venue will be “throwing it back to the days of 1920s prohibition” for a Gatsby-style evening of glamour.
There’ll be a glass of fizz for everyone reception, followed by a “tastebud-tantalising” five course meal alongside an evening that’s filled with entertainment, from DJs and live music, to look-alikes, a table magician who will be working their magic, a brass band, and flapper girls dancing the night away.
The five-course feast begins with a range of canapés to get your tastebuds going, before moving onto the starters, which includes everything from a pulled confit duck and foie gras terrine, and a smoked salmon roulade, to a warming bowl of spiced red pepper and sweet potato soup, and more.
Main courses include butter roasted Norfolk turkey or sous-vide goose breast, and pan fried cod, to a puy lentil and barley steamed pudding – which is suitable for vegetarians and vegans – and all mains are served with a selection of sharing winter vegetables and ‘Peaky gravy’.
For those with a sweet tooth, there’s a festive selection of desserts to tuck into – including a white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake, and even a cheeseboard.
You can then finish it all off with a hand-picked selection of digestifs.
Don’t fancy a five course meal? Don’t worry, you can still enjoy an evening of entertainment and dance the night away on the ground floor area, as well as sipping on one of the cocktails from the brand-new Christmas Cocktails menu – which are all £9 each.
General admission on New Year’s Eve will be £20 per person, and tickets to the full gala experience will set you back £75 each.
All the glitz and glamour isn’t limited to New Year’s Eve though, as all throughout the festive season, there’s a handful of events to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year, including bottomless brunches every weekend, and the recently-launched bottomless Sunday roast.
‘Roaring Peaky Christmas’ is happening every Friday and Saturday throughout the festive season, and Includes canapes and a three course meal plus entertainment from lookalikes and magicians, it’s perfect for Christmas parties.
Then, from 15 November, there’ll be live music every day, and there’ll also be a brass band accompanying the weekend live bands too.

Cheadle care home asks locals to take their dogs to its ‘Canine Café’ next week to cheer up residents
A Greater Manchester care home is calling on locals to take their dogs down to its ‘Canine Café’ next week to help cheer up the residents.
After recent studies have shown that introducing dogs into care home settings can help lift people’s mood and increase social interaction among the community, Abney Court Care Home in the Trafford town of Cheadle – which sits within the picturesque grounds of Abney Hall Park – has decided to host its very-own ‘Canine Café’ next week.
But in a bid to make sure there’s enough canine cuddles for all the residents, staff at the home are asking the public to bring their own four-legged friends down to the party.
Abney Court created the canine-themed event after being inspired by the positive impact previous animal visits have had on residents’ wellbeing in the past, and after hearing how much they missed the company of their own pets from their younger years.

Taking place next Friday 8 March from 11am-12pm, Abney Court’s ‘Canine Café’ gives attendees the chance to enjoy loads of tasty puppy-themed treats and drinks, all while being in the company of furry friends.
Of course, all four-legged guests will be taken good care of too.
Not only will the pups be able to enjoy plenty of fuss from the home’s residents, but they’ll also get the opportunity to play with the other pooches, and be treated to their very-own ‘pup cake’ too.
There’ll also be lots of garden games and a raffle too, so everyone has a shot a winning a whole host of goodies to take home.
Inviting the Greater Manchester public down to the party next week, Amcia Hara, who is the Home Manager at Abney Court, said: “We are looking forward to inviting the local community to our Canine Café, as atudies have shown that introducing dogs into care homes can help lift people’s mood and increase social interaction.
“The human-animal bond is powerful in promoting self-esteem and wellbeing, which is exactly why we feel our Canine Café is set to be a brilliant event.
“Whether you have your own dog or simply an animal lover, we’d encourage you to come along to our event.”
