Delia Darlings: Celebrating the Life and Work of Delia Derbyshire at Manchester Art Gallery

Thursday 14th March, 6 to 8pm, Free, booking advisable- book here

As part of ‘Wonder Women | Suffragette Manchester‘, there will be a special Delia Darlings event at Manchester Art Gallery on Thursday 14th March, 6-8pm (free, booking advised). There will be live performances and we will be sharing our insights into the life and work of Delia Derbyshire. Here’s the schedule for the evening:

6.10pm – Introduction to event and documentary by Caro C and Naomi Kashiwagi

6.15pm- 6.40pm – The Delian Mode documentary by Kara Blake

6.50pm – Naomi Kashiwagi’s performance, including an introduction

7.30pm – Caro C’s performance, including an introduction.

‘Delia Darlings: Celebrating the Life and Work of Delia Derbyshire’ is part of Wonder Women: Radical Manchester inspired by a shock moment in April 1913, when three ordinary Edwardian women turned vigilante, surprising guards at Manchester Art Gallery, smashing glass and causing a commotion in the fight for universal suffrage.

Exactly 100 years later artists and organisations across the city have come together in a short season of events, 3rd March – 4th April, to reflect on its impact. A milestone on the way to 2018 and the centenary of the first Act of Parliament for women, Wonder Women is a distinctive Manchester voice questioning the power of women today. Join in and be heard.
