We aim to get a balance of music from the world of jazz – international concert, national and regional gigs, contemporary jazz, swing, improv, big bands, blues, singers, younger bands and jazz legends.

Jazz Leeds has it’s main venue at Seven Arts, an 100 seat venue, 31 Harrogate Road Chapel Allerton Leeds LS7 3PD (or 60 during the CV19 restrictions). We also run small events and workshops (up to 25 people) at The Barn, Meanwood Valley Urban Farm.  We also organise the Village Jazz Festival, part of the annual Chapel Allerton Arts Festival in August/September and the city centre JazzLeeds festival each summer.  Our events are all seated and are designed for a listening audience.

We have three programming “seasons”- Autumn (Sept-Dec), Spring (Jan- Easter) and Summer (Easter – July).  Our evening concerts (usually Thursdays) are for national and international names we have two a month of these with a break over the summer months. Our Sunday afternoon events are mainly for local or regional bands and they run weekly thoughout the year. Our Rush Hour jazz series in the Seven Arts bar have visiting guests with the house rhythm section.

Steve Crocker programmes our regular jazz programme. If you are interested in performing at our venue please email your details, and links to your music, to this address [email protected]. If we cannot help, then there are many other venues in the region on the Northern Jazz Promoters website http://www.northernjazzpromoters.org/
