The history of Denville Hall is undoubtedly wonderful - the generosity of its founder, the beautiful Hall, the photographs of the film and theatre icons who have lived there - but it is the present that is really remarkable.  Denville Hall is bustling with activity.  Residents are in the bar with friends, catching up with their families over lunch, enjoying the performances of visiting musicians or dressed for the theatre thanks to live streaming, a hugely appreciated gift from the National Theatre.  Denville Hall is a home in the truest sense and it is a privilege to be part of it, now and for the future.

- Sir Simon Russell Beale, Denville Hall President
