Welcome to Delia Derbyshire Day
Delia Derbyshire Day (DD Day) is a Manchester-based organisation which pays homage to Delia Derbyshire (1937-2001). Our work is centred around the Delia Derbyshire Archive which is held at John Rylands Library in Manchester, UK.
We feel this collection is a gem of electronic music that is a rich resource for education of electronic music and inspiration for creating new music and art.
Check out what we’ve been up to recently – including new FOUND SOUND CROWDSOURCED MUSIC – on our news page.
We hope you will find here all the information you require and/or desire about our organisation, our cultural heritage events and our hands on electronic music making activities. Do get in touch via our Contact page if you need or want any more information.
