Jazz Leeds is a not for profit organisation, a registered charity (address: c/o Jazz Leeds 11 Gledhow Park Drive, Leeds, LS74JT Charity Number 1178875) run wholly by volunteers to support the development of jazz in Leeds.  

We were formerly known as Seven Jazz based in Chapel Allerton in North Leeds. We changed our name to Jazz Leeds to reflect the festivals and music we are now promoting throughout the city.

We are not running indooor programmes as present due to Covid19. Our programme usually includes

  • Evening and Sunday afternoon concerts with international, national and regional jazz artists. 
  • Jazz Workshops for people who want to learn to play jazz. 
  •  Jazz Voices Choir for people to sing popular jazz tunes.
  • Jam sessions where we encourage people to join in.
  • The Jazz Leeds Festival in July at city centre venues 
  • Village Jazz Festival in August/ September – part of the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival.
  • Two jazz venues – Seven Arts and Inkwell in Chapel Allerton

We are however running twice weekly open air jazz in the Seven Arts Courtyard in our regular slots on Sunday afternoons 1.30-3.30pm and Wednesday evenings 6-7.15pm

Jazz Leeds charity has a board of trustees and an advisory group of supporters who help with running the events. These are  Steve Crocker, Phil Green, Rosemary Holmes, Trevor Prinn, Sarah Henderson, Steve Ross, Tony Walsh, and Jami Sheriff. We are always looking for help – just come to one of our gigs and offer!
