In March I organised a special event for the final year students from the School of the Built Environment to celebrate their time with us, and what for many would be the last few weeks at Birmingham City University.
I wanted the event to give the students a really good send-off and bring together students and staff to celebrate their achievements over the last three years. As a proud Brummie, I knew what the theme had to be, so the attendees enjoyed an evening inspired by the TV series Peaky Blinders. Peaky Blinders is an epic drama set in the lawless streets of 1920s Birmingham.
