The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Sheffield Jazz

Bringing the best of national and international jazz artists to the city year round, Sheffield Jazz are a small not-for-profit with a big passion for music and over 40 years' experience to boot. Their gigs alternate between three venues: Crookes Social Club, Firth Hall, and the Crucible Studio.

Live jazz returns to Sheffield Jazz with a four-gig season starting on 23 October – see details below.

Pre-booking is required for these gigs. There'll be social distancing in place, with seating only as individuals or small groups from the same household or support bubble, and they'll start and finish earlier than usual. See Sheffield Jazz's full Covid-19 precautionary measures.

You can also get in the groove at home with a selection of online clips from their past performances below.
