With just three weeks to go until Ed Sheeran performs to thousands of fans at Chantry Park – anticipation is building for Suffolk’s headline gigs of the year.

Spread over four nights at the Bank Holiday weekend, the Suffolk-raised superstar will be playing to 160,000 fans eager to lap up the likes of Castle on the Hill and Shape of You.

Much has been made in recent weeks of parking fears and travel concerns, but there is much more to these concerts than traffic disruption.

Podcast host Sophie Barnett, political correspondent Paul Geater and local democracy reporter Jason Noble discuss what you need to know, why the gigs will be so beneficial for the town, and what it means for future concerts in the park.
