24 ac. Rheumatic (said room+attic)
20 ac. Annie (A and E about Inn backwards)
20 dn. Admiral? not certain why.
Have you any more letters in 17 down?
Question Author
the A in Annie and the M in rheumatic has given me the admiral what you have just sent , have ???r?e?n for 17 down, i might be wrong with the e ,

kay stupid to listen to lilting rhthym, i have got -cadence - the last e bieng the one in 17 down.
the second letter could be either e or o

so maybe
?e?r??n - or - ?o?r ??n
?e?r?e?n - or -?o?r?e?n

Question Author
20 across - teams who turn and stall - 8 letters - have s?d?s???, am presuming its either side step or side show which gives the second letter for 17 down, (7th letter e or o )
Your cadence is right. I think the other one is sideshow (stall). which gives ?O?R?E?N and fourteen fits in (teenager), but I can't see the cross and ivy connection. I will get back to you if I find it. Good Luck!
admiral fits last one but I can't see why?
Question Author
