A historic Worcestershire pub changed its name for a week and now more could be set to follow suit.

The 17th-century Fleece Inn in Bretforton, owned by the National Trust, was renamed the Green Man during the Great Big Green Week.

Now, the Trust is looking to repeat the festival, aimed at inspiring discussion about climate change, both at The Fleece Inn and elsewhere when it returns next year.

One festival attendee Tom Ciotkowski said: "All the best movements for change start in the pub.

“You can expose people to a wide range of opinions over a pint, who might otherwise not hear them".

From September 26 to October 2, the pub played host to a range of events, from panel sessions to comedy, to a Saturday fete featuring the Pebworth Morris Dancers and Bretforton Silver Band.

Speakers included DIY SOS regular Charlie Luxton and Ash Smith, co-founder of the influential rivers campaign group Windrush Against Sewage Pollution.

Tom Appleby's dairy farm in Bretforton is powered by a 150KW solar array and, next, he wants to install a solar battery.

He said: "We're always trying to increase our efficiency, not just because it's good for the planet, but because it's good for our bottom line.”

Toqueer Quyyam from Birmingham, who campaigns with Friends of the Earth and interfaith organisation Footsteps and blogs at Toqueer Green experience enjoyed his first-ever visit to the Evesham area.

"Everyone was fantastic and friendly,” he said.

“This is the way to open up the climate justice space."

Speaking before Great Big Green Week Nigel Smith, landlord of The Fleece Inn, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to make this historic pub, located at the heart of a vibrant Worcestershire village community, a host venue for discussions and conversations on issues that resonate on a global scale.

“We believe that this is a UK first, we aren’t aware of any other pub being transformed in this way. It’s a very exciting project to be involved in’.
