The week in pictures

The re-opening of former haunt of Ed Sheeran’s The Swan & Hedgehog pub in Ipswich as part of the Ed Sheeran Made in Suffolk exhibition, sponsored by Aspall Cyder.

In Ed Sheeran news, cider maker Aspall has backed the revival of a pub in Ipswich that hosted some of singer Sheeran’s first ever gigs, and is even sponsoring an exhibition in his honour.

The Swan, on King’s Street in Ipswich, will get an extensive refurbishment, according to Aspall, and will be renamed ‘The Swan and Hedgehog’.

According to the cider maker, the local venue will be “an important stop on a self-guided Ed Sheeran trail around the town, as part of the Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk exhibition, which is exclusively sponsored by Aspall.”

Yes, you read that right.

The pub is being restored to its former glory as a venue for up-and-coming musicians to perform.

Aspall has tracked down “previously unseen photographs of Ed Sheeran’s performance at The Swan”, which will form the beginning of an Ed Sheeran tribute wall in the pub.

In addition, “other exciting exhibits” from the Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk exhibition will become a permanent feature at The Swan & Hedgehog when it closes in May 2020.

Aspall has also pledged to donate £1.50 for every pint or bottle of its cider sold in the pub to two local Suffolk charities until the end of May next year.
