Thousands of fans descended on Chantry Park in Ipswich over the bank holiday weekend last summer to watch the Framlingham singer perform four huge homecoming concerts.

The ‘Ed effect’ brought 150,000 fans to Ipswich over the weekend – with hotel and pub owners celebrating after seeing their businesses boosted.

The concerts were packed with special moments and surprises, each night having its own slice of magic.

On night three Ed was joined by a special guest in the form of the hugely popular rapper Stormzy during his encore.
