Background Extras, Walk-ons and Crowds in Birmingham

Birmingham and Peaky Blinders are an irresistible combination. This popular drama series has had a massive impact on Birmingham’s position as a centre for creativity, TV and film production. Vibrant and busy, Birmingham is a creative hotspot.

As a result, demand for professional extras, performers, walk-ons, artists, musicians and dancers has grown extensively over the past few years and there are no signs of a slow down. In fact, demand is constantly rising among film companies of all kinds as well as PR agencies looking to create attention grabbing stunts.
