Now that DD Day 2014, our touring events and education pilot work are complete, it remains for us to thank everyone who has made this another successful and inspiring venture.
All the venues for being so helpful and hard-working; the audiences for being so supportive and being open to absording 3 hour’s worth of Delia-n delights including some pretty radical cross music genre programming; to photographers, journalists and radio/TV stations; to Arts Council England for subsidising our work; One Education and John Rylands here in MCR for helping make the education pilot project happen; the schools’ staff and pupils who were inspired by Delia and were also inspiring in turn with the animated TV themes they composed; the Delia Darlings team on the road and in MCR.
And of course thanks to Delia for being so darn inspiring and the DD estate for trusting us enough to share her wonderful work and our humble creative responses.
Exciting future ideas are already afoot and Delia Derbyshire archive developments are moving fast. In the pipeline are more events, more education projects building on the success of the pilots and further touring already booked for OXFORD on OCT 9 2014.
So, do keep in touch, keep an eye on us and an ear out for us. And keep the Delia flame alive!
