So far throughout the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend, we have been blessed with sunny spells and dry weather as temperatures have averaged around 16°C.

According to Met Office forecasters, Saturday looks set to be a mostly cloudy day with some sunny spells forecast during the late afternoon.Saturday evening looks set to be mainly overcast however it should remain dry – meaning those standing at Ed Sheeran shouldn’t get wet.
Temperatures are also set to be milder than what we’ve experienced in recent days, with highs of 12°C.
The stage set-up for the gigs is something the Stadium of Light hasn’t seen for a long time, with Sheeran taking up a circular podium where the centre circle would usually be placed.
This allows fans to use all four stands of the ground with all eyes on the stage.
A small number of tickets for the two nights remain available on Ticketmaster while more are up for grabs through the service’s resale platform.
