About the Event

BOOK CHARACTERS CRYPTIC CROSSWORD IN AID OF SOHO PARISH SCHOOL PTA

You can find and print the crossword HERE. Click "Read More" below for more help and entry conditions.

The clues are all cryptic and therefore involve some lateral thinking and general knowledge. If you’ve never done a cryptic crossword before, they aren’t as hard as you think, especially if you can do normal crosswords; try these websites for a quick introduction: https://inews.co.uk/inews-lifestyle/how-to/how-to-do-cryptic-crosswords-90889 or https://www.dummies.com/games/crossword-puzzles/solving-cryptic-crosswords-for-dummies-cheat-sheet-australian-edition/

The answers are all characters from well-known books but not always the main character. The numbers in brackets at the end of each clue are the number of letters in each word of the answer; for example (3,4) means that the first word of the answer has three letters and the second word four. The letters in the brackets are the initials of the author of the book(s) in which the character appears.

Each entry costs £1 and can be paid on this site. If you do a joint effort, please pay £1 for each person who contributes.

The winner of the competition will be the entry with the most correct answers. In the event of a tie-break the winner will be drawn out of a hat. The adjudicator’s decision is final. Contact details will only ever be used to notify you if you win.

Completed entries should be scanned (or the answers listed in an email instead) and emailed to sohoparishpta@gmail.com with Cryptic Crossword in the subject line. . All entries must be received by 11.40pm on Friday 18th December.
