The Dartington Hall Summer Course in contemporary music was established in late 1959 by William Glock, the Controller of Music at the BBC (Music Department) and held annually at Dartington Hall in South Devon.

In 1962, from 11th-25th August, Delia assisted Luciano Berio there, bringing with her a van load of BBC equipment.[1][2][3]

The current Dartington Hall Archivist finds no mention of the event in their archives[4] and Delia's papers contain only a sheet of General Information about the local people organizing it.[5]
