Suffolk’s Ed Sheeran is known for popping up at Latitude Festival for surprise performances - but the question is ‘will he do it again this year?’

Ed, from Framlingham, who closed Glastonbury on Sunday night, has taken to the stage at Henham Park several times over the years.

It’s no big secret that the superstar has a special place in his heart for Latitude.

He appeared at the iArena for an intimate concert in front of just 1,000 people.

And in the same year, the Castle on the Hill singer teamed up with Snow Patrol for a rendition of Chasing Cars on the festival’s Other Voices’ Stage.

Last year, the Thinking Out Loud star joined his friend Foy Vance on stage during his final song, to rapturous applause from festival-goers.

As the 2017 festival draws nearer, speculation is mounting that he may make another surprise appearance.

According to his tour schedule, Ed is set perform in Conneticut, USA, on July 14 and July 15 and is then not due to perform again until July 18 in Quebec City, Canada.

Latitude takes place between July 14-16 at Henham Park, near Southwold.
