This Heritage Lottery Fund supported event will honour the 80th anniversary of the pioneering woman behind the Dr Who theme. We will learn how they produced that iconic piece of electronic music, hear more from the fascinating Delia Derbyshire Archive and live music and live painting!
There are a couple of places left on our electronic music making workshop for kids aged 6+ (with an accompanying adult) so CLICK HERE if you want to take part in that. The workshop for adults is now sold out.
