As a redhead, it’s your ginger genetic right to be crazy over Ed Sheeran. And why not, he’s a great role model for gingers, and everyone else seems to be obsessed with him anyway!
A chance to bathe in the glory of your ginger admiration comes in the form of new exhibition ‘Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk’ at Ipswich’s Christchurch Mansion. Curated by Ed’s father, John Sheeran, it will catalogue the singer’s life all the way from school through to success. Exhibiting pieces include a collection of Ed’s personal items, but also portraits of him created by renowned artist Colin Davidson, plus photography by Mark Surridge.
All this is rounded off with Ed Sheeran performing a series of four ‘homecoming’ concerts in Suffolk in August to wrap up his world tour.
Ed Sheeran is well-known for his Suffolk roots, growing up in Framlingham and even referencing Framlingham castle in his popular tune ‘Castle on the Hill’.
You can catch the ‘Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk’ exhibition at the Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich from 20 August 2019 until 3 May 2020. Tickets are free and more details can be found at ipswich.cimuseums.org.uk.
