Cryptic Crosswords with David Astle | Collingwood Library | Friday, 25. October 2019

Peek inside the black-and-white box of a cryptic crossword and you will find wonders. Puns and double meanings. Reversals and codes. Charades and homophones. This session will unlock the secrets of each clue recipe, as well as pass on the pleasures of solving and making your own clues. Far more than your chance to unravel a single puzzle, David’s chat is a challenge to open your mind to deeper wordplay. The session will allow your brain to flex and your imagination to germinate, ready for any future conundrum.
