After the sell-out and general success of Delia Derbyshire Day 2013, Delia Darlings are pleased to announce DD Day 2014, a follow up event honouring the fascinating work and archive of Delia Derbyshire (1937-2001). Delia was a pioneering electronic music composer who worked for the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and is most famous for realising the original Dr Who theme in 1963.

DD Day 2013 was the first of its kind. And due to continued demand and with the most valued support of the Delia Derbyshire Estate and Delia Derbyshire Archive at the University of Manchester, DD Day 2014 will take place at the Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester on Sat 12 April 2014.

Awarded funding from the Arts Council England, this project involves two new artist commissions, the DD Day 2014 event, England tour dates (London, Bristol, Hebden Bridge, Norwich and Oxford) and an education project.

Project Manager Caro C explains:

The success of DD Day 2013 far exceeded our expectations, demonstrating great interest in Delia’s work, her archive and support for our rather radical cross-genre programming. And this year sees a DD Day 2014 with a fresh format. We are excited to be able to present an audio visual collage of archive material, new music and visual art commissions and a short presentation by a Delian expert. We hope Delia would approve of us shaking things up and not just duplicating a successful event.

In the run up to the event we will be divulging information about the events we have coming up and introducing our new artists and programme. So follow us here on WordPress or connect on Twitter and Facebook as we launch ourselves into another delightful Delia D inspired series of events.
