On Monday 4 March Hymns For Robots follows the life and work of Delia Derbyshire, writer of the Doctor Who theme and a trailblazer of electronic music.

Join Noctium from 7-8pm as they explore this fascinating tale of the mother of modern music. Using strange sounds and weird wobbulations, Noctium brings you a sonic experience your ears won’t believe.

Hymns for Robots mixes Noctium’s unique heightened performance style with analogue and digital music to bring you an extraordinary life that was almost forgotten.
