Britain’s Got Talent finalist Steve Hewlett will open the new Kids Stuff store in the Eastbourne Arndale Centre on Saturday February 6th.

Ventriloquist Steve, who was a finalist on the seventh series of Britain's Got Talent and has led a team on Eggheads, will appearwith his puppets Chi Chi and Simon Cowell.

After declaring the store open at 10.30am, Steve will chat to families in the store. There will be free face painting for youngsters until 2.30pm and free paper finger puppet making throughout the day.

Winners of the “Name the famous puppet” competition will also be announced so make sure you take part in store before February 4.

Kids Stuff, a family run business, with currently four generations involved within the company, has been operating in the Arndale Centre since 2010 but has just moved to a brand new unit for this year.

The business was launched in 1988, when owner Debbie Hartfield was looking for a toy in her local town and was unhappy with the choice available to her. Twenty five years later there are now eight stores located across Sussex and Kent with a successful on-line presence via their website and other social networks.
