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 in 2018 to reflect the festivals and music we are now promoting throughout the city. Jazz Leeds run 

  • 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.
  • Three jazz venues – Seven Arts and Inkwell in Chapel Allerton and our new venue – the Bar on Park Lane in Roundhay

Jazz Leeds charity has a board of trustees and an advisory group of supporters who help with running the events. People you will meet are Steve Crocker, Phil Green, Rosemary Holmes, Trevor Prinn, Sarah Henderson, Steve Ross, Jon Duffield, Sally Coe, Jemma Freece and Jami Sheriff. We are always looking for help – just come to one of our gigs and offer!
