Staff & Ownership

Owners and Directors:

Since 2010, The Old Market has been owned and managed by Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell. Local residents, the pair are creators and directors of the global hit show STOMP. In fact, this very building played a key role in STOMP’s conception; it was the very first place Steve and Luke worked together. Find out more here.


Staff [The TOM Team]:

The Old Market is managed by a small staff team (we call ourselves The TOM Team), each with great expertise, and sharing a passion for what we do. We find that the personal touch is important, so hope that whoever you meet here, you’ll experience a friendly welcome.
