The musician launched the ESSMF in 2019, aiming “to help young people under the age of 18, and living in Suffolk (UK), with small but useful grants to help with studying or playing music”.
The festive London show presents a rare opportunity to see Sheeran in a small venue (the church’s capacity is approximately 2000), with the singer due to perform four nights at the capital’s Wembley Stadium next summer.
Earlier this week, Sheeran previewed every song from the forthcoming ‘=’ on YouTube Shorts. He’s previously shared the singles ‘Bad Habits’, ‘Visiting Hours’ and ‘Shivers’.
Ed Sheeran’s manager Stuart Camp recently revealed that the star already has another record in the can. “The material is there and it won’t be another four-year wait, I can promise you,” he said.
“Ed already knows what the next album is. He’s already got a track-listing for it, and I will get that changed over the next 12 months.”
