Bethlem: Worth a Visit?
Wednesday, 14 November 2012 from 18:30 to 20:30 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
‘Bedlam’ has long loomed large in the popular imagination, becoming a synonym for chaos in Elizabethan times. Two talks will explore various aspects of the history of one of the world’s oldest hospitals for the treatment of mental illness, from Cibber’s famous statues of ’raving’ and ’melancholy’ madness to life at the Victorian Hospital in Southwark, now the Imperial War Museum.
Colin Gale (Bethlem Royal Hospital Archivist) “The Brainless Brothers: A Biography of Cibber’s Raving and Melancholy Madness”
Sarah Chaney (UCL – PhD Candidate) "All Roads Lead to Bethlem": Patients and Practitioners in the Nineteenth-Century Asylum
Free entry includes a glass of wine but please arrive early as the capacity of the museum is only 100 people.
Access the courtyard of St Bartholomew's Hospital via Henry VIII Gate and turn to your right. Enter The Robin Brook Centre via the entrance which says 'Outpatients/Minor Injuries'. There will be stairs and a lift to the 3rd floor on your right as soon as you enter the building.
