The town of Basildon in Essex, 25 miles outside of London is the seventh largest of the 'new towns' built as part of the regeneration project following the Second World War. Described by The Guardian as 'the middle of Middle England', 73% of Basildon’s population label themselves as working class. 89.5% are white. 68.6% voted to leave the EU.

In 'Magic Party Place' photographer CJ Clarke captures life in statistically one of the most 'English' towns in the country, where conservative values and sporadic hedonism meet, and offers an insight into the state of our post-Brexit nation.
