The Old Market
AboutPerformances, gigs, theatre, dance, events; The Old Market, recently renovated, is a dynamic cultural venue just outside the city centre. The Old Market’s main space is a 300-500 capacity room with the flexibility to showcase everything from live music to exciting new theatre or cabaret. Recently re-fitted, The Old Market is also home to production facilities and art and photography galleries. TOM’s bar, open on all main event nights, also hosts its own entertainment from DJs to live music and comedy.
The Old Market also acts as an official Visitor Information Point, working in partnership with VisitBrighton. We are able to offer free maps and other literature, and advice on how you can make the most of your visit to Brighton & Hove.
Discover The Old Market, and take time to enjoy this enchanting cultural space.
