A BRITAIN’S Got Talent star performs his brand new stage show in Clacton this week.

Ventriloquist Steve Hewlett is bringing his Simon Cowell, Sinitta and Arthur Lager puppets to the West Cliff Theatre on Saturday, as well as a number of new friends.

The show is suitable for the whole family with whimsical characters and stand-up comedy from the entertainer, who has been honing his craft since the 1980s.

“I have performed at lots of holiday parks in Clacton, but never at one of the theatres, so I am really looking forward to coming down,” said Steve.

Tickets are £20 from the box office or by calling 01255 433344. The show starts at 7.30pm.
