Falstaff Inn

Picture source: Annette Brix Bergen

The Falstaff was situated at 270 High Street. This pub was present by 1794.
I remember this pub well, particularly the night of 6th Jan 1993, when I would have been about 20. It was one of my regular haunts, along with the Lincoln Cornhill Vaults.
Someone in our circle of friends thought it would be a grand idea to host an evening of music at the Falstaff, featuring all the various bands that we were then playing with.
We hired out the back room, and charged 50p a ticket to come in and watch a collection of 5 or 6 of the worst bands ever conceived.
It was a truly spectacular evening of chaos and poorly rehearsed musical numbers, made all the more memorable by the fact that, aside from the bands, and their partners, not one person turned up to hear the gig.
Basically, we hired out the back room of a pub, got drunk, and jammed till closing.
I have an audio tape of some of the gig, and it hasnít got any better with age.
