What? The 8th annual “Sloggers and Betters” gathering for crossword setters and blog contributors and readers will take place in London, following on, as last year, from the annual lunch for Times setters.

When? 4:30pm onwards on Wednesday 30th May 2012

London – meeting at the The Town of Ramsgate, Wapping

The Town of Ramsgate, 62 Wapping High Street, London, E1W 2PN
And later? Anyone still standing will be heading towards a nearby restaurant
Who? Anyone who is interested
Why? It is hoped that most of the Times setters and several of the Telegraph, Guardian, Independent and FT setters will put in an appearance.  There should also be a cross-section of bloggers and readers from this site, Times for the Times and Fifteensquared.  This is your chance to meet us!

  1. I’d absolutely love to come to this! Live and work in London so could be there by 5.30pm to join the party.

  2. I’ll try and engineer my diary to be there. Our office is a 5 minute walk away on East Smithfield. I can’t guarantee my location but I am usually in London and that will be a good excuse to dump my bag at the office and join y’all for a pint. I know where the local curry house is as well!

    1. Thanks the Lord that I didn’t say ‘dairy’ – that would have been a bit tricky!

  3. Sadly, even with the high speed train, it would not be practical for me to get to a weekday late afternoon/evening gathering which is a shame for many reasons, not least because they are always such fun. Still there’s always the next Saturday one to look forward to in due course.

    1. A visit to sister having put life into perspective means that I have changed my mind and will definitely be coming up to the garthering on wednesday afternoon..

  4. Many thanks to Big Dave for organising, great time really enjoyed it. Hope you managed to get back to your sister’s place ok. I got back at 1:20!
