Penguin Cafe

FRIDAY 4TH JUNE 2021

7.30 p.m. - 10.30 p.m.

CANCELLED

Arthur Jeffes is a musician, composer, producer and founder of Penguin Cafe. Before
settling down to make music he studied archaeology at Cambridge University and dabbled
in Arctic exploring, which became the starting point for Arthur to become a composer in his
own right, as the prolonged periods of icy silence inspired original compositions, most
recently on the latest Penguin Cafe album ‘Handfuls of Night’ released September 2019 on
Erased Tapes Records.

Following in the footsteps of his father, Simon Jeffes of the iconic Penguin Cafe Orchestra,
Arthur formed Penguin Cafe with a brand new line-up in 2009, bringing together a talented
array of musicians to create a new generation Penguin Collective, initially to keep the music
from the Penguin Cafe alive.

Four new albums of original music followed: A Matter of Life... in 2008, The Red Book in
2014 and The Imperfect Sea released on Erased Tapes in 2017. The same year Arthur paid
tribute to his late father by performing PCO’s seminal record Union Cafe live to a sold out
Union Chapel, coinciding with the album’s re-issue on Erased Tapes.
Most recently, 2018 saw the Penguins perform in Paris, Berlin and London with a special
show to support Greenpeace at the new venue EartH in Hackney, and 2019 brought the
release of the band’s latest album ‘Handfuls of Night’, in September on their label Erased
Tapes. 2019 also saw Penguin Cafe tour extensively in the UK culminating in their sold out show at the Southbank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.

This year, 2020, sees the band having just completed touring throughout Europe in January,
with more dates announcing through the year, including a headline show at London’s
Barbican Hall in September.
Arthur has also been working with Greenpeace and Aardman Animations, composing the
soundtrack for a special film ‘Turtles Journey’, released at the end of Jan to high acclaim,
promoting the campaign to ‘Protect the Ocean’. His work with Greenpeace continues .

Rescheduled from the Fruitmarket 20//9/20
Original tickets are valid

Hi Everyone – Whilst last week’s government roadmap announcement gives us much to look forward to there is still a lot of uncertainty around live touring. Sadly this uncertainty has meant that we will have to cancel our UK tour scheduled for June this year - we would rather wait until everybody can be 100% confident that the shows can go ahead safely. That said, and looking to the future we are going to keep our London show at the Barbican on 22ndMarch 2022 when everything will be back to normal and we hope you can join us! Tickets are available now. Everyone with a ticket for the other UK dates will be automatically refunded in full. Thank you for all your continued support through these difficult times. It means the world to us. Penguin Cafe
