A new online store selling special items linked to the Suffolk superstore has just gone live - making them available to shoppers from around the world.

The shop, which complements the unique Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk exhibition in Ipswich, is the ONLY place online to buy a range of items from T-shirts and bags to posters and notebooks.

The exhibition has been attracting visitors from around the world and around Ed's home county of Suffolk and organisers want to spread the 'merch message' to everyone in time for Christmas.

Made in Suffolk features portraits by renowned artist Colin Davidson and stunning photography by Mark Surridge along with a range of intimate items never previously seen in public, including family images, school reports and Ed's own artwork.

In the foreword to the Made in Suffolk exhibition book, Ed wrote: "Suffolk means so much to me. I love walking the countryside, the open skies, the light, the coast, fish and chips on the beach, or a pint of local beer in an ancient pub."

The popularity of Ed Sheeran merchandise was shown during the run-up to his concerts in Chantry Park in the summer when long queues built up outside a pop-up shop set up in the Butter Market street to sell souvenirs linked to the biggest music event the town has ever seen.

The online shop is a chance to share that journey and pick up a permanent reminder of Made in Suffolk.
