FOOTBALL FLAG FRENZY: Big Tree Pub Sheffield
SHEFFIELD PUB FOOTBALL FLAGS | A footy-loving pub landlord claims to have the ‘best decorated pub’ in the UK after creating a display featuring 500 flags of the teams participating in Euro 2020.
General manager Adam Chamberlain and his team spent 36 hours draping more than 1,000 feet of flags across the Big Tree pub in Sheffield.
Patriotic punters are greeted by two massive 10ft ‘Come on England’ inflatable mascots and roughly 2,000 feet of buntings and flags and staff will be wearing England t-shirts during their shifts to show support for the Three Lions.
Adam said he is ‘buzzing’ for this year’s tournament and feels like it is one of the best England squads he’s seen in his lifetime.
Adam said: “I’d like to think this is the best-decorated pub in the UK.
"We thought we wanted to do something special for the Euros because it’s been quite a tough year and we’re all just buzzing for this.
“We wanted to lift spirits and get everyone excited and thought – go big or go home.
“We spent around 36 hours pinning the flags up, which was quite the effort but it’s absolutely worth it looking at it now.
“We’re buzzing at the moment, weather has been incredible, and I think this is the best England team of my lifetime.
“I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but it’s coming home.”
