Pop up - Cryptic Crosswords

If I'm So Smart, how Come I Can't Do Cryptic Crosswords?

P O S P O N E D

A surprising number of us suffer from this complaint, yet fret ye not, for help is at hand.

This pop up is now full, but if you would like to go on the waiting list sign up at a general meeting or email using the bluebird email box on this page.

If you've ever laughed or groaned at a pun, giggled at a double-meaning, or simply wondered at the fact that "astronomers" is an anagram of "moon-starers", or "Tony Blair PM" one of "I'm Tory Plan B" then cryptic crosswords are well within your reach. Up your street, even.

Crosswords are tantalising, informative, stimulating, often hilarious, deeply satisfying, and, when done with someone else, arguably the most fun you can have with your clothes on!

This session which is being facilitated by crossword enthusiast Alan will see some basics cleared up, with lots of examples in a safe, fun environment, and helpful tips to see you on your way in his tried-and-tested pop-up group (tested to destruction on the members of another U3A!) will soon cure any case of crypticitis.
