Nishla Smith and Tom Harris Live at Ronnie ScottsWatch Nishla Smith and Tom Harris in a Lockdown Session from Ronnie Scott’s in London earlier this year here on YouTube.

Nishla Smith is a singer and writer driven by a desire to tell stories and was recently a winner at the International Song-writing Competition (Jazz category).  Tom Harris is a Mancunian pianist, improviser and composer, most heavily influenced by Black American music.  Nishla and Tom have been playing together for three years and their symbiotic duo relationship has blossomed sideways into an array of creative projects.  At the core of their partnership is a deep respect for the history and culture of the music they play and a preoccupation with drawing out the characters and stories they find there.

Pandemic policies. This information will be updated as things change.

Update: April 2022

  • Face masks: In the Main Hall, on the ground floor, these are recommended at all times, but are optional. Anyone who sits upstairs in the balcony MUST wear a face mask – with NO exceptions (not even those who are exempt). This is to allow people who are clinically vulnerable to have a place to sit where seats are naturally separated, so: (a) to provide a place for people who want to be as distanced as possible from others, and with anyone nearby wearing a mask; (b) as virus particles when airborne are generally heavier than air, this helps to mitigate the risk of transmission from people sitting in the balcony to audience members below.
  • The windows and doors of the venue will be open, allowing fresh air to be constantly moving through. Although we have heating, this might mean that the ambient temperature is a little cooler than some might like, and audience members should dress accordingly.
  • Please, if you can, take a Lateral Flow test before coming to the Arts Centre, and if this is positive, don’t come. These tests aim to pick up anyone who is infectious at the moment of testing, so please take the test as late as possible on the same day before coming to the Arts Centre. If you test positive, a refund or transfer of your ticket to another event can be arranged, if you let us know before the start of the event, by emailing
