Good Cheer

We wish all our readers Good Cheer for the year that has passed and for the year ahead.

We’ve had a very busy time at the Hall in 2018 and we’re looking forward to hosting our last event this year. On Tuesday 11 December at 7.30pm please join us and explore endless endeavours in enigmatic entertainment as Dr Roger Luther introduces us to the wonderful world of cryptic crosswords. Roger, a University lecturer in Mathematics and a lecturer with the U3A, is also a former Mastermind contestant. Since gaining his PhD at Sussex in 2004 (Mathematical Models of Kleptoparasitism), he has been a lecturer on a variety of courses for mathematicians, physicists and engineers. He boasts a rather splendid line in natty ties.

He will be hosting a fun evening where we will learn about clueing techniques, double definition, hidden words, homophones and gather a host of helpful hints.

Refreshments will be provided by SUBS (Sussex University Baking Society) and piano music by Alex Nisbett.
