Owner description: Welcome to The Old Market, Hove's independent, high quality live theatre and venue. In Brighton & Hove, The Old Market (or, as we like to call it, TOM) is the best place to see a show. Our diverse programme includes live music, great theatre and innovative comedy, all of which you'll enjoy in a welcoming and pleasant environment. You only have to scan our track record of curated "TOM's" Shows to trust our future picks; we've brought you international theatre, big name comedians, and pioneering bands and musicians. Better still, our average ticket prices for this programme are just £11, making them some of the city's best value. We're also 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, too, and are always happy to discuss new relationships. TOM's Bar meets all your refreshment needs throughout your visit. With high quality products at very reasonable prices, served by a friendly team, TOM's Bar is a place to enjoy, to discuss and to take in the atmosphere each event brings. TOM's Bar also provides an intimate setting for many smaller events, including exclusive show previews. The Old Market is owned and managed by two of the city's most successful artists, the creators of the international smash-hit show STOMP. It is run by a passionate and skilled staff team, who aim to make your experience with us a great one. As we grow and evolve, keep in touch with us by signing up for our fortnightly, hand-written e-Newsletter, or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and Soundcloud. Alternatively, look out for our new print programme each season. We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Market soon. The TOM Team

“Great local venue!!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Great venue in Hove. Good choice of events. Needs more children's & local events but saw the best theatre on 2 occasions over the year.
Only let down by the bar atmosphere-lots of potential but something missing so always get a drink elsewhere beforehand & afterwards.

“Fab local venue”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

We went to see Ms Mr at TOM this month.

I love this venue, it's great to have somewhere that puts on great productions and gigs in Hove. I also took my son to see a production there earlier this year. It's got a great atmosphere. The only thing I'd change is the cloakroom system-huge queue at the end of the night.

“Superb venue”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Great venue, close to some great little restaurants and bars for pre or post show drinks. The in-house bar is also good. There are some excellent shows on here, just be prepared to get here in good time as mostly the seating is unreserved.

Fast service at the bar even though extremely busy.
