Britain’s Got Talent is coming soon to Buxton, in the shape of a finalist who is making a name for himself across Britain.

Comedy ventriloquist Steve Hewlett is bringing his hilarious friends to Buxton Opera House on Monday July 28, at 7.30pm.

He shot to fame in last year’s smash-hit television series, winning over the public vote to become the wild card finalist in the show.

Steve memorably surprised a certain Simon Cowell when he unveiled Little Simon and Little Sinitta – creating huge cheers from sitting rooms all over the UK!

The ventriloquist said: “I love making people laugh and impressing them with my job. If they like me as a personality too then that’s a bonus.”

Now Steve and his cast of zany characters, along with international award-winning illusionist Richard Griffin, are bringing their new and spectacular show to Buxton as part of a nationwide tour.

Tickets, priced at £16 & £18 with discounts available, can be purchased from the box office on 0845 127 2190 or online via
