Sharing Shakespeare's Story

Bust of Shakespeare

This bust is a plaster cast copy of Shakespeare's funeral monument in Holy Trinity Church. It was made in 1814 by George Bullock. The monument in Holy Trinity Church was erected sometime shortly after Shakespeare's death but before the publication of the First Folio in 1623.  The monument is situated on the northwall of the church chancel, a prized position which reflects his high status in the town.  It is considered to be an accurate record of what Shakespeare would have looked like as so many people who knew him were still alive and likely would have been involved with its erection.
