Party Time @ Seven

Tomorrow, Friday 7 July is Seven’s 10th Birthday. It's hard to believe it is ten years since the heady days of setting up Chapel Allerton's first Arts Centre and we are proud that we've sustained a consistent programme of high quality music, theatre, film, dance, comedy and much more throughout this time. We're very grateful to all the specialist, mainly volunteer, programmers who put together the events and of course to all Seven's audience members and customers who support what we do. So Friday evening is Party Time. Join us at Seven to celebrate with live music in the bar from 7pm. Free event.

Tonight, sorry but our Absolute Kinks concert is SOLD OUT, but they will be returning on Thursday 21 December, so be sure to book early for that if you've missed out this time.

Seven’s 10th Birthday Party celebrations continue on Saturday 8 July, 9pm, with a free concert by the Soul Surgeons. This nine piece band of local musicians perform music from Etta James to Tom Jones, the Blues brothers to Dusty Springfield, Motown and much more in between. Guaranteed to get even the most reluctant dancers on to the dance floor. Free event.

On Sunday 9 July 1.30pm - 4pm Seven jazz presents Matt Robinson, Matthew Herd and Will Glaser  A trio that aims to explore early songbook and jazz repertoire in an open and honest way. £10 / £8 conc.

Café Cinematique returns on Tuesday 11 July, 7.30pm, for a film screening of Oscar-winning Ida, directed by Pawel Pawlikowski.The film screening will be followed by an opportunity to join a discussion about this haunting film of love, hate and loss. £8 on the door.

On Wednesday 12 July, 8pm, look forward to Seven Live - The Best In Local Talent. This month, four more class acts for you listening pleasure - Tempo Feliz, Exciting Brazilian-styled six-piece; Lost Loui, Otley's rising acoustic Americana band; Mulholland, York's favourite folk duos and Tony Lambert, a mighty fine singer. £6 on the door.

Round off the week with two great shows for a summer weekend. On Friday 14 July, 8pm, Sisterhood, celebrates female musicians of Leeds. Fuzzy Jones is the queen of “Junk Shop Folk". Fran Wyburn’s music has rich harmonies and subtle instrumentation. Astraluna’s debut album, The Pass of Storms, has been received with critical acclaim, and Miranda Arieh, songwriter, taps a seam of introspective poetry. £8 adv /£10 on the door.

On Saturday 15 July, 8pm, it is Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers. Latest album, 'Dinosaurs Ate My Caravan', is a hymn to contemporary issues, from soy milk to David Attenborough; tea and biscuits to mysterious uncles. There’s a lament at the passing of dinosaurs and an ode to the virtues of the tweed jacket. Intriguing. £8 adv /£10 on the door.

Tickets for most events are found at Where not sold out, tickets are always available on the door.

Every £ spent at Seven helps support high quality arts in a local setting. We look forward to seeing you at Seven very soon.
