A new exhibition called ‘Ed Sheeran: Made In Suffolk’ with snippets of his growing years and his music career is now open to the public, The Sun is reporting.

The exhibition is the brainchild of the singer’s father John, who donated hundreds of items to the exhibition.

It features everything from the first lyrics Ed wrote to a childhood self-portrait to a ‘Most Likely To Be Famous’ certificate from his high-school prom to a letter telling him he had failed a songwriting course.

Also on display are props and artwork from his videos and albums as well as a series of paintings by portrait artist Colin Davidson.

His music teacher Ian Johnson told The Sun that “he wasn’t the greatest singer and he wasn’t the greatest guitarist. But he definitely was an incredible performer and he could definitely write a song. He didn’t ever give up.”

Donations from the free exhibition and proceeds from the shop will go to Zest teenage hospice care in Suffolk, the article revealed.
