Popular voluntary-run jazz promoter based in Chapel Allerton in North Leeds. Winner of the Parliamentary Jazz Award 2016 for best UK jazz club.

Jazz Leeds is a not for profit organisation, a registered charity (address: c/o Jazz Leeds 11 Gledhow Park Drive, Leeds, LS7 4JT Charity Number 1178875) run 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.

Our programme usually includes

  • Evening and Sunday afternoon concerts with international, national and regional jazz artists. 
  • Jazz Cafes 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 The Barn @Meanwood Valley Urban Farm
  • Jazz Workshops for people who want to learn to play jazz. Jazz Voices Choir for people to sing popular jazz tunes.

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, Oliver Bolton, Ben Gilbert, and Jami Sheriff. We are always looking for help – just come to one of our gigs and offer!
