An exhibition of the life of a superstar by Suffolk Ed Sheeran is set to open in Ipswich just days before his big shows in the area.
At a glance at the nine-month-old exhibition, the walls of the Christchurch mansion can be seen covered with artifacts associated with the singer.
Colin Davidson's paintings and drawings, photos of Mark Surridge and personal items that have never been seen in public, previously tracing Ed's journey from a Sufflock student to a world superstar.
Other elements include the much-loved guitar, awards and the one-of-a-kind puppet made for the music video "Sing."
The exhibition is curated by Ed's father, John Sheeran, and is sponsored by Aspall cider maker.
Mr Sheeran said: "The team at Edward's home concerts in Ipswich in August 2019 provides the appropriate culmination of his mammoth world tour.
"The choice of Ipswich shows how important his Suffolk roots are to him.
