The birthday celebrations were held at the mansion on Thursday, February 20, where the Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk exhibition continues.

One fan wrote in the card: "Happy birthday Ed, keep inspiring us with your music", while another wrote: "Here's my autograph incase you wanted it!"

Elsewhere, fans were also able to collect activity sheets and enter a selfie competition run by Ipswich Borough Council.

Children visiting for half term also had the chance to paint their own portraits based on the art around the mansion, while Sheeran fans created their own paper shadow puppets based on the star's "Sing" music video.
