This is a question Barred

I've only ever been barred from one pub, the "Fort St George in England" on Midsummer Common in Cambridge.*

I was part of a group caught drunkenly trying to add our names in biro to a historic signed cricket bat. I still have the pint glass I was holding as I was chucked out.

Where have you been banned from?

*All pubs in Cambridge have posh names like this. 25% fact

The Krankies got me barred
Every year a club at my uni went to the pantomime at the Pavilion Theatre in Glasgow. I'm told no other theatre in the city would let them within a mile. These trips had to be booked under assumed names, on account of the club being barred for life every time they went.

So... Christmas 1997, and we're sitting there enjoying Aladdin. Drinks have been drunk and it's not long before a bit of good-natured heckling begins. People who know Glasgow will know that the Pavilion panto always stars the Krankies. Or at least it did until wee Jimmy fell off a beanstalk a couple of years back and threatened to sue - but that's another story.

It is a panto tradition for the cast to throw sweets into the audience. It is a club tradition for the audience to throw sweets at the cast. Mine hit wee Jimmy Krankie on the forehead. The panto stops. The other krankie comes back on stage to berate us. Children cry. Angry ushers appear and escort us from the building. We're banned for life. Again. So we went to the pub and got (more) pished - the panto was crap anyway.

And I claim no responsibility for the beanstalk incident.

I also got kicked out of the terminal building at Glasgow airport for not being a passenger during last month's terrorist alert/government conspiracy/feeble attempt to justify bombing more arab countries*
