The Old Market, Hove


The Old Market, Hove

Back with a bang this autumn!

Wow, The Old Market is really coming back to life with an incredible array of diverse talent for the autumn. Here are two contrasting examples of what’s on offer. 

Saint Etienne plus Guests on 27th November.

Formed in Croydon in 1990 by music journalist Bob Stanley with childhood friend Pete Wiggs, and soon joined by singer Sarah Cracknell, Saint Etienne arose within the context of the indie-dance movement of that era but created a unique sound which – albeit accidentally – paved the way for what would later become known as Britpop. Now, the outfit head to The Old Market in support of their tenth studio album ‘I’ve Been Trying to Tell You’. The album is made largely from samples and sounds drawn from the turn of the new century, a period that was topped and tailed by Labour’s election victory and the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers.

Wes Banderson 4th to 6th December

This event is a World Premiere! And seems to me to be a pretty unique concept!

Multi-instrumentalists Wes Banderson create a musical tribute to one of the most unique and idio-syncratic directors of our generation. Wes Anderson is the auteur behind the iconic films The Grand Budapest Hotel, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, Isle of Dogs and more.

Now you can sit back and experience the music of these iconic films live, all performed by a six piece band for your listening pleasure. Wes Banderson is the brainchild of Adam Znaidi, bassist of The Physics House Band and The GO! Team. He has assembled some of the best musicians around, along with beautiful on-screen animations, to take you on a journey through the rich tapestry of tracks from the Anderson film archives.

Plus, come dressed as your favourite Wes Anderson character, and you might even win a prize… Proudly presented by The Old Market and supported using public funding from Arts Council England, this show is not affiliated with or endorsed by Wes Anderson, but we reckon he’d love it.
