We are holding a crossword event in Holborn, London in October along with an email competition alongside to raise funds for RNIB Pears Centre which provides a home and outstanding education for youngsters with visual impairment and other complex needs.

  The Cellar Bar
Penderel’s Oak (Wetherspoon)
283 – 228 High Holborn
London WC1V 7HP
 The main event runs from 2.00 pm – 4.00 pm.

The event will also draw attention to the BBC Children in Need Appeal 3D Puzzle Calendar. Half of the monies above costs go to BBC CiNA and half goes to RNIB Pears Centre for Specialist Education.

The first RNIB Cup in 2011 was featured on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme, World Service and regional television.  Solvers have gathered their wits and are ready to try again to crack a challenging and entertaining three-dimensional crossword puzzle – The Seven Dials Mystery.

Find out what the mystery is and solve it!  Singles, pairs and teams are all welcome in three sections.  A team of helpers will make sure no-one gets stuck for too long.

Tickets for the live event and further details:


There is also an email section with entries from across the globe. Do join in. We would love to have you with us.

All proceeds go to RNIB Pears Centre for Specialist Learning.

Best wishes,

Eric Westbrook
