Delia Derbyshire Day 2013 will be the first of its kind. It will be a day to celebrate and highlight the fascinating work of Delia Derbyshire (1937-2001), the pioneering electronic music composer who worked for the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and is most famous for realising the original Dr Who theme in 1963.
Delia Derbyshire Day will be taking place on Saturday 12 January 2013 at Manchester’s renowned music venue Band on the Wall (Best Entertainment Venue at Manchester Tourism Awards 2012). 2013 will be the Dr Who 50th Anniversary and therefore of Delia Derbyshire's iconic original theme, so this event will launch the celebrations.
Awarded funding from the Arts Council England, PRS for Music Foundation and Quebec Arts Council, this project involves three new music-based commissions, the Delia Derbyshire Day event and a Northern England mini-tour.
