The Suffolk superstar is due to play four concerts in Ipswich across the bank holiday weekend.

Security at the gigs will be tight and fans should ensure that they look over the guidance before heading to Chantry Park.


Organisers have requested that fans don't bring bags which are larger than A4 size. All bags will be searched on entry to the gig and larger bags will cause queues.

Food and drink

Small amounts of personal food are allowed, but no drinks are permitted. Instead those requiring food and drink will be able to buy food (including vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options) inside Chantry Park.


Professional cameras, video and recording equipment are not allowed. Personal cameras and smart-phones are fine.
