It’s absolute Madness in Archway

MADNESS frontman Suggs brought 3,000 reasons to be cheerful to Archway last night when he switched on the spectacular light fountain on top of the Tube station.

The ever-popular singer flicked the switch on the Big Rock Candy Fountain on Monday – the first day of winter.

The huge artwork by David Batchelor is made up of 3,000 brightly coloured fairground style lights which flash on and off to simulate movement – and will light up Archway every night until the clocks go forward in March.
