Raving and Melancholy Madness on tour

Last week we said ‘au revoir’ to our two well-known statues, Raving and Melancholy Madness.  They have gone on their travels first to Frankfurt and then on to Ghent, before rejoining us back at Bethlem next Autumn ready for the opening of our new museum.  We wish them a safe journey and look forward to having them back with us soon!

    Looks frighteningly precarious!

      It was both exciting and nerve-wracking to see the statues winched up on the hoist! It made me wonder how different this move was from their jaunt from Moorfields to Southwark in the early 1800s…!!
