Ed Sheeran will never forget where he came from. The singer who rose to global stardom from Suffolk, England, will get a heroes welcome this summer when an exhibit celebrating his pre-fame days will open at the Christchurch Mansion in his family's hometown.
"Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk" is slated to open on Aug. 20 and run for nine months. The exhibit, curated by the singer's dad, will feature portraits, photos and other memorabilia from Sheeran's early performing days thanks to items donated by the "I Don't Care" star and tributes from local artists.
"I'm doing my homecoming shows end of August in Ipswich, the first proper headline shows I've ever done in my home town," Sheeran wrote on Instagram on Friday morning (June 7). "My dad has unearthed a load of photos from my early days, I've lent a load of stuff too, for an exhibition that will run for 9 months at Ipswich's Christchurch Mansion from August 20 - until spring 2020. Go and see it. Lots of love."
