The Old Market | Live Theatre & Performance Venue | Hove, East Sussex
The Old Market in Hove, is an independent live theatre and performance venue with over 200 music, film, theatre, dance, cabaret, comedy, literature and workshops each year.
The Old Market (or TOM, as we like to call it) was opened in 2011 by creators of the global percussive phenomenon STOMP to create an independent hub for the arts in their home city and channel some of their success back in to the local arts eco system. Under the directorship of Loretta Sacco and starting with just two staff in 2011, we now employ a passionate and engaged team of full time, part time and casual staff to deliver our busy schedule.
The festival-like programme at TOM is the cornerstone of our identity. We host over 200 different events every year from our multi-format (300 seat, 500 standing capacity) space. Thousands of people come through our doors each year to experience live music, film, boundary breaking theatre, dance, cabaret, comedy, literature, workshops and performances using new technologies, as part of our #TOMtech programme.
We are 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, and with the introduction of our Gig for a Gig scheme, we’re also proud to support the best emerging talent and nurture their growth so that the arts can thrive for years to come.
Keep an eye out for our ‘TOM’ tags – these indicate our hand-picked events that we know you’ll love. Follow us on social media, we post interesting stuff and occasionally we can be a bit funny. Have a drink in the intimate setting of TOM’s Bar. Do all of this, and most importantly, come and see what’s going on at Brighton’s ‘hidden gem’ (not our words…)
