Peggy’s is a special place. In such a short space of time Peggy’s has become central to Nottingham’s social life, and a leading venue on the UK’s Jazz circuit. It is foremost a place to come to listen to top quality Jazz and world music, but the delicious Persian food and stunning cocktails and wine all add to the overall “Peggy’s experience”.

It is always an extraordinary night at Peggy’s.

Parisa Eliyon, Acoustickle

Peggy’s Skylight is the breath of air Nottingham needed: a music-focussed, beautiful, central venue with fantastic sound and stage, wonderful staff, great food and drink and an incredible musical offering.

Promoting Acoustickle shows for 10+ years, Peggy’s is the ONLY venue we can recall helping us sell more tickets just off its reputation as a place to be.

Sooree Pillay, co-Artistic Director, Nottingham Arts Mela

In the last two years Peggys Skylight has fast become a go-to place for music lovers in Nottingham. An artist-led venture, the ambience combined with a delicious food offer and top quality music, gives it a unique and irreplaceable quality to the city. Independent venues such as this are crucial to the arts, not only now, but in ensuring a future for the development and enjoyment of art and culture in the future.

With diversity and inclusion at its heart, Nottingham Arts Mela is proud to work with Peggys, and fully behind any initiative to support the venue through these difficult times.

Peggy’s Skylight is the Ronnie Scott’s of the north! Cut from the same cloth with the same love of the music and attention to detail that has made it an essential venue in any tour. Its that perfect mixture of professionally run venue by musicians who know the music and are invested in the culture they are trying to promote. Like Ronnie’s it has a perfect amphitheatre for the delivery of intimate and meaningful shows with a great sound system and professional backline. They take risks in programming exciting music and engage with much needed cross generational approach to jazz and jazz culture which is essential for the long term development of the music and musicians.

To give you a direct example of how good they are, they help touring bands like myself by opening the venue on a down night, just to help me coordinate a tour around the UK. Respect to them and the scene needs venues like this.

STOP PRESS: UK JAZZ VENUE GETS IT ALL RIGHT (OR PEGGY’S MAGIC ELIXIR FOR ALL KNOWN ILLS)
What would you say if I told you that there’s a jazz venue right here in the UK that can on a Saturday night (a Saturday night, for Gawd’s sake!) present a no-holds barred, unapologetically ‘old school’ acoustic quartet, playing straight-ahead bop-based stuff AND attract a full house of over 100, largely comprising people under FIFTY, not all of them die-hard jazz fans but each unashamedly enthusiastic about what they’re hearing?

And what would you say if I told you the club has fabulous acoustics, a well-planned out stage, a great sound system, a beautifully upkept grand piano, serves delicious food, has friendly, personable staff and, best of all, is run by a jazz-playing, musically-eclectic and highly affable host?

Peggy’s is a positive breath of fresh air, a place in which performers, policy, public and proprietor all magically coalesce to create something long overdue and well worth shouting about.
