QUARTET - A FILM BY DUSTIN HOFFMAN
STARRING HEDSOR HOUSE AS BEECHAM HOUSE
Hedsor House, the magnificent privately-owned Georgian country house in Buckinghamshire, is the stunning backdrop of Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut QUARTET, released on 1 January 2013.
Chosen by the film’s producers and location scouts for its sheer character and charm, the 18th Century home of Augusta the Princess of Wales, mother of King George III, was transformed into Quartet’s fictional Beecham House — a stately retirement home for opera singers.

While the house has welcomed royalty, film stars and governments dating back as far as 1166, today Hedsor House is privately run by the fourth generation of the Shephard family as a thriving venue for exclusive weddings, events and filming, located in Taplow just 35 minutes from central London. The house has won many accolades since launching in 2008 including 'Event Venue of the Year 2012' and "Vogue's Dream Wedding Venue".

“As soon as we visited Hedsor House we knew it was special,” said Nick O’Hagan Line Producer of Quartet. “Hedsor House is not only stunning, but as it is privately owned by the Shephard family it crucially offered us exclusivity and privacy while filming as well as the flexibility to create Beecham House just as we wanted it.”

Nick Shephard, whose grandmother was given Hedsor House as her wedding present said: “Since restoring the house and grounds to their former elegance and launching it as a wedding, events and filming venue in 2008, it’s been an exciting time for the family. We know former generations of the Shephard family would be tickled pink to see Hedsor House have such a pivotal role in Quartet.”
