Britain's Got Talent finalist Steve Hewlett has sold out two shows at the upcoming Mundesley Festival.

But organisers say there is still plenty of entertainment left to be enjoyed during the August week of events.

Ventriloquist Mr Hewlett added an extra matinee show after his TV success saw demand for tickets soar, and festival general manager Derek Kirk said it sold out equally quickly at the 182-seater Coronation Hall.

Other attractions during the festival, running from August 5 to 10, are:

Monday - The Jonathan Wyatt Big band are fronted by cheeky crooner Olly Day, who is joined by Lynsey Ball.

Tuesday - The Ivy League reviving their 1960s pop classics such as Tossing and Turning and Funny How Love Can Be, both top 10 hits in 1965,

Wednesday - Temperance Seven jazz band
