In celebration of National Album Day, Penguin Cafe’s Arthur Jeffes joins Classic Album Sundays’ founder and BBC Radio 6 Music host Colleen Murphy to discuss the story behind their latest album Handfuls of Night as part of our National Album Day celebrations.

The album, which will be played in full over a world-class hi-fi system, is the follow-up to Penguin Cafe’s much applauded record The Imperfect Sea (2017) and sees Arthur Jeffes’ journey follow in his father’s footsteps – on a project inspired by the Antarctic.

Handfuls of Night began life after Greenpeace commissioned Jeffes to write four pieces of music corresponding to four breeds of penguins, to help raise awareness for the endangered Antarctic seas.

Following the conversation and playback there will be an audience Q&A.
