What? The 15th annual “Sloggers and Betters” gathering for crossword setters and blog contributors and readers will take place in London, following on, as in previous years, from the annual lunch for Times setters.  Start by looking in the Parliament bar (first door on the right) or just outside (depending on the weather) – fellow cruciverbalists are not hard to find.


2:00pm onwards on Tuesday 21st May 2019.


London – meeting at the George, Borough High Street, Southwark, SE1 1NH

The George, Borough High Street, Southwark, SE1 1NH
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!
How? You can just turn up on the day, but feel free to indicate your intentions by leaving a comment.
  If you’ve never been before, these are very friendly functions and you have the opportunity to meet other like-minded people.

  1. I will be there – looking forward to it already.

    I assume the XV in the title is a reference to the number of years that the event has been held and is nothing to do with rugby, but I will bring my boots just in case!!

  2. Darn – I’m committed to be elsewhere that day :-( Have a great time, everyone!
