About Us

Welcome to The Old Market, Hove’s independent, high quality live theatre and venue.

In Brighton & Hove, The Old Market (or, as we like to call it, TOM) is the best place to see a show. Our diverse programme includes live music, great theatre and innovative comedy, all of which you’ll enjoy in a welcoming and pleasant environment.

You only have to scan our track record of curated “TOM’s” Shows to trust our future picks; we’ve brought you international theatre, big name comedians, and pioneering bands and musicians. Better still, average ticket prices for this programme are just £11, making them some of the city’s best value.

We’re also proud to work with local artists, major cultural festivals, independent promoters and esteemed national arts organisations, bringing even greater breadth to our programme. Of course, we always keep an open mind for the future, too, and are always happy to discuss new relationships.

TOM’s Bar meets all your refreshment needs throughout your visit. With high quality products at very reasonable prices, served by a friendly team, TOM’s Bar is a place to enjoy, to discuss and to take in the atmosphere each event brings. TOM’s Bar also provides an intimate setting for many smaller events, including exclusive show previews.

The Old Market is owned and managed by two of the city’s most successful artists, the creators of the international smash-hit show STOMP. It is run by a passionate and skilled staff team, who aim to make your experience with us a great one.

As we grow and evolve, keep in touch with us here at theoldmarket.com. You can sign up for our fortnightly, hand-written e-Newsletter, or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. Alternatively, look out for our new print programme each season.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Market soon.
