This event has now moved to a virtual event via Zoom. All ticket holders will be sent a Zoom invite on Friday morning for this workshop. The presenter was no longer able to get to Nelson, but has decided to run the workshop remotely.
Solving Cryptic Crossword for Fun and Profit (Without the Profit)
Unlike their Quick cousins, Cryptic crosswords can seem impenetrable, as if they're deliberately written to be nonsensical. Well, here's a little insider secret: they are. If you want to get a leg-up on how to decode cryptic clues, and amaze your friends and family with your newfound wordplay expertise, this is the workshop for you!
Taught by crossword compiler and (semi-)professional puzzle designer Jim Fishwick, this workshop shows you how to unpick the perplexity, pinpoint the puns, and answer the anagrams. We'll solve a puzzle together as a group, and you'll come away with a new set of skills, feeling fully across the down clues, and down with the across ones.
