Wiv Words - Wivenhoe

An inaugural event in 2013 for the Essex town of Wivenhoe, 'Wiv Words'aims to be an unstuffy celebration of areas written and spoken word talent.

Apparently the Essex dialect pronounces the name of the town as 'Wiwenho'. There you go. Now you'll sound just like a local when you turn up.

When? One-off in 2013 it seems? News anyone?

Where? Wivenhoe Essex. William Loveless Hall and other venues in the village.
