There’s a lot going on at The Old Market Assembly. The Wardrobe Theatre provides an action-packed programme of live theatre almost every night of the year meanwhile The Old Market Assembly hosts some of the finest musical and performance artists around.

On Friday we usually have live music, providing a stage for emerging talent and top-notch touring acts alike to get the dancefloor jumping. Saturdays are more event oriented and could be anything from cabaret to one of our late night immersive club nights that take over the whole venue. Sometimes free, sometimes not, but always good.

Tickets for all events available through Headfirst
