About Bedlam2021-05-18T14:11:29+00:00

The band

Bedlam was founded by Professor David Veale, consultant psychiatrist at the Bethlem Royal Hospital – which gave the English language the word Bedlam.

Originally composed of psychotherapists, the band has extended its membership to a variety of daytime occupations, although there’s still a decidedly psychological flavour to the brass section.

We’re available for hire for conferences, parties, weddings, divorces (you never know) and corporate events. For more information and to book the band, contact David here.
