It was lovely to be back at Seven. I know Joanne Harris and her band were delighted with how the evening went.

As I’ve said before you really are a model venue. From when we first visited you’ve got behind us with promotional efforts both online and in-house.

Your staff from tech to the bar are top notch – friendly and professional. Wow!  What a lovely, lovely venue you have in Seven.

– Jeremy Richardson, The John Hackett Band

Just wanted to say thank you for an amazing night on Friday. What a fabulous audience and such a great venue. Please pass on our thanks to Marc and the bar staff for all their help and support.

– Bryan Craven, Lym Productions

Seven is an independent arts space in Chapel Allerton, Leeds. 2023 is our 16th year. The space is small but versatile, providing a hundred-seat venue for film, theatre, dance, music, words and comedy, together with an attractive and welcoming café bar.

The building of Seven Arts was the culmination of ten years of effort by a group of local residents who got together to improve community spirit through involvement in the arts.

We see Seven as having a pivotal role in linking the various cultures along the Leeds 7 corridor, hence our name, Seven Arts. Our aim is to showcase the best of local and regional talent and attract innovative work from further afield.


Seven is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company.  As a CIC, Seven sets out a social mission and provides an annual transparent account of how it delivers on this work. It is governed by a small board of Directors.

Seven is a genuinely independent artspace. It is not in receipt of core funding from Arts Council England or any public source and must therefore stand on its own feet.

The building of Seven was supported by funding from the European Regional Development Fund.

Buying Tickets

Advance tickets for events at Seven are available online from TicketSource, which can be reached from the ‘Buy Tickets’ link on Seven’s website. Seven does not have its own Box Office, so cannot take bookings or reservations by phone.

Buying tickets through TicketSource involves a 10% booking fee. This sum goes to TicketSource for managing an efficient booking system. For Seven to develop its own Box Office system would involve great expense resulting in much higher ticket prices.

Where events are Pay What You Feel, such as Rush Hour Jazz, please put cash (notes preferably) into the Donations Jar. Donations can also be made by card. Please give generously as these are tough times for musicians.

If you have any particular difficulties regarding an advance booking please email Seven at info@sevenleeds.co.uk with details of the problem. There is no need to print off a ticket as Seven has a Front Of House sheet with the name in which the booking was made.
