In days gone by, The Fat Cat was the most recognisable symbol of the Bedlam Theatre and appeared on most publicity. Furthermore, it leant its name to Bedlams Cafe and over the Fringe a large wooden cut-out adorns the front of the building.
The image was originally taken from the back of a packet of corn-flakes and since has been reworked over the years.
In todays bedlam, the fat cat no longer takes precedence in publicity though there is still a version above the box office hidden behind a board with the current branding.
