About this Exhibition

Come along and see this unique exhibition of Ed Sheeran’s journey from Suffolk schoolboy to global superstar.

Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk opened to coincide with the four homecoming concerts in Ipswich, which brought his record-breaking Divide tour to an end. It features dozens of personal items never seen in public before, along with stunning paintings and sketches by renowned artist Colin Davidson and photographs by Mark Surridge.

This must-see, exclusive exhibition gives you an unrivalled insight into the making of Ed Sheeran, intimately portraying his creative and musical journey, whilst celebrating his strong connection to Suffolk and its people.

There is also a well-stocked shop selling a range of bespoke merchandise, including exhibition brochures, gifts, souvenirs, and jewellery designed by Ed’s mum, Imogen.

The exhibition is organised by Ipswich Borough Council and curated by Ed’s dad, John.

The Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk exhibition will close for the final time at the end of 4 November, but the online shop will remain open for orders.


This event is free to all.
