Turner Sims Summer Festival  Penguin Cafe

Discover the whimsical and energising music of the brilliant Penguin Cafe as they headline the Saturday night of Turner Sims' Summer Festival.Arthur Jeffes and his Penguin Cafe ensemble perform music from their fifth studio album Rain Before Seven... along with some back catalogue favourites.A sense of optimism infuses Rain Before Seven... - titled after the old weather proverb 'Rain before seven, fine before eleven'. Inspired by Arthur Jeffe's experience of waiting out the 2020 lockdown, this is music that acknowledges grief but chooses to express joy.Penguin Cafe's unique blend of Avant-pop, Folk, Classical and Minimalism uses instruments from all over the world to create an effervescent and playful sound.Pre-show Vibe Lounge at 7pm Before the concert there will be a free gig by Isla Croll in the foyer, programmed by The Vibe Collective - a team of passionate 18-25-year-olds from across Southampton.Plus, join us from 3.15pm for a packed free afternoon of local bands outside on the courtyard stage.
