Dame Agatha Immortalised

27 Feb 2022

Sculptor Elisabeth Hadley from Brixham has won a public vote to make a permanent tribute of the crime author in her home town in Torquay, Devon to "one of its most famous daughters, Dame Agatha Christie". Cllr Swithin Long, cabinet member for economic regeneration, tourism and housing said: "Agatha Christie is well known around the world, with many people visiting... each year to learn about what inspired her work.The new sculpture will capture that essence perfectly and really complement the new look Strand." The bronze creation of the author sitting on a bench with her dog will stand in The Strand as part of regeneration works and will be unveiled later in 2022.
