Morning all!  Busy day today with the Times Crossword Championships in London (Good luck to Crypticsue, Verlaine and any other bods from round here taking part)  Sadly I have to miss the event as I’m running a Grand Prix Quiz event on the Wirral at Hoylake and will have several Eggheads and Chasers taking part to try and uphold their quiz status.  There are a few of these around the country on the first Saturday of each month and if you ever fancy taking on the great and good of quizzing, let me know and I’ll point you in the right direction.

As is usual for the weekend prize crosswords, an assortment of clues, including some of the more difficult ones, have been selected and hints provided for them.
