Penguin Cafe – CANCELLED

Sunday 27 June 2021, 7.30pm

RNCM Concert Hall


This event, postponed from Monday 21 September 2020, has now been cancelled.

“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. Everyone will be refunded in full. Thank you for all your continued support through these difficult times. It means the world to us.” Penguin Cafe

All ticket holders will be refunded. Customers who purchased tickets through RNCM Box Office can contact us here. If you have purchased tickets via another agent, please contact your point of purchase.

Avant-pop from musician, composer, and producer Arthur Jeffes and his Penguin Cafe ensemble, performing music from their Handfuls of Night record and back catalogue.

Combining elements of folk, classical, and minimalism in a style distinctive to the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Arthur Jeffes and his cohorts craft a vivid series of panoramic sonic landscapes, as rich in cerebral poignancy as they are in emotional depth.

Following in his father Simon Jeffes’ footsteps, and performing music from both the Penguin Cafe Orchestra repertoire alongside the new Penguin Cafe material, this talented array of musicians make use of a variety of instrumentation – gut-stringed violins, viola, cello, bass, percussion, upright and grand pianos, synthesiser, harmonium and more – to bring an effervescent and thoughtful sound.
