Witches, WAGs and Wideboys

Essex Business School, Anglia Ruskin University and Essex County Council are hosting a discussion on what it means to ‘be’ Essex on 27 March, in Colchester. The day will focus on various aspects of the Essex Girl/Boy stereotype, and how it impacts upon our social and working lives.

The Witches, WAGs and Wideboys conference will offer insight to support the delivery of our vision; The Future of Essex, and our ambition to unite the people of Essex; embrace our many local characteristics and inspire pride in ourselves and our county.

Hear from academics and authors who have written about Essex stereotypes, speakers include Syd Moore (author) Ros Green (Director, Essex Book Festival), Jodie Halford (BBC Journalist), Dr Theresa Simpkin (academic and Essex Girl) and participate in discussion groups.
