Brighton Fringe, Brighton Festival, Caravan, The Great Escape and Artists Open Houses



Festivals 2018 at The Old Market

Festival season is upon us! Expect a jam-packed month of shows and moments of bizarre wonder. Brighton Festival, Brighton Fringe, The Great Escape, Artist Open Houses and the Caravan Showcase all find a home with us this festival season in a veritable feast of cutting edge culture.

We’ll be taking on the surreal, weird and wonderful as irreverent Brighton Festival Guest Director David Shirley will be in the building, treating us to a world premiere of his alt-rock/pop pantomime: PROBLEM IN BRIGHTON. Sh!t Theatre’s latest production, DOLLYWOULD is an ode to our favourite country legend, Dolly Parton: and we’re staging Brighton’s newest music/art club night: THE LOVERS CIRCUS with a headline set from musical adventurers The Turbans.

As we cross over into June, JOSEPH MORPURGO, a comedian on the rise, having already won the 2016 Chortle Awards three times, brings us his brand spanking new sell out multimedia show, Hammerhead, to get us rolling in the aisles.

We’re very proud to be hosting some of Finland’s finest talents for Brighton Fringe. THE FABULOUS BACKSTROM BROTHERS, directed by Brighton favourites Spymonkey, bring us pin-sharp musical comedy. We also have hand to hand and foot juggling masterpiece SUHDE and quite possibly the world’s darkest mime act: DARK SIDE OF THE MIME.

We look forward to seeing you at TOM’s bar for a drink (or two…)
