TIMES CROSSWORD CHAMPIONSHIP 2023
Registration for the 2023 championship opens on Monday, September 4th at this address. If you are one of the 50 top finishers from 2019, you should have heard from us already for a chance to book early (please email email@example.com if you think you should have heard but haven’t).
For the rest it will be first come first served, with space for 200 participants. The cost is £40, and includes refreshments. Times subscribers can use the code XWD21AA when booking to benefit from a 20 per cent discount.
You will be asked to choose between the two preliminary sessions, at 09.30 and 11.30. The top 50 competitors from each group go through to the semi-final, with the top three finishers from that round facing off over one puzzle for the trophy and top prizes of £1000, £500 and £250.
There is, as ever, limited space so unfortunately there will be no spectator tickets and only those competitors qualifying from the morning rounds will be able to stay in the building ahead of the semi-final. For the rest of you there is bound to be a gathering of like-minded souls at the George Inn on Borough High St.
