CHRISTMAS PARTIES: Book Your Christmas Party or Event At The Old Market

Looking for a party venue in Brighton & Hove this Christmas? Here at The Old Market we have plenty of options for parties of all sizes, from a night out with friends to getting the whole business involved! Here are some suggestions…


Bespoke: For larger groups…

The Old Market’s main space comfortably fits 150 seated at tables and 500 standing (or dancing, of course), so it is the perfect flexible size for a large office party. We’ve teamed up with some amazing local caters, to make sure that whatever your budget and dietary requirements, we have something to please everyone. When you hire out The Old Market for a Christmas Party, you have exclusive access to the bar, and the function room next door.

If you are looking for a more intimate space for a smaller office party, TOM’s Bar and Waterloo Room fits up to 100 and is also very flexible.



Ready Made Frivolity: White Christmas…
The most glamorous Christmas Party in Brighton.

Perfect for an Office Party, or a night out with friends. Brought to you by the people behind White Mink (our turbo-charged, sell out 1920’s electro-swing speakeasy club nights) Mixing the tongue-in-chic retro glamour of a vintage supper club and cabaret with live music from our in-house band and guest performers, White Christmas takes you from the 40’s through to the naughties.

White Christmas is guaranteed to be the hottest Christmas party ticket in town. Book early, either as individual guests, or as part of a VIP Group Package.

Wanting to arrange a party but still after a traditional sit down dinner? We’ve teamed up with a local restaurant to provide a pre-party 3 course Christmas meal (or something less traditional if you fancy), perfect for groups who don’t all want a late night party, or who want a hearty meal before hand.

Or Why Not: Have Christmas in January…

And your guests might have more time in the diary too!! Find out more about the options available in our venue hire page.
