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. Get in the groove with a selection of clips from their past performances below. And until their live shows return, they're encouraging fans to show their support to freelance musicians by buying their music, downloads and merch.
