Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever will see more than 200 people in red dresses re-enact Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights music video in Bedford Park, Spring Hill from 2pm on 13 July. The event is a free, outdoor, family event raising money for DVConnect. The event which is organised by Kristian Fletcher is in its fourth year and Fletcher is excited for what the day will bring.
This global event is held the same day in capital cities all over the world. Since 2016, the event has annually attracted more than 200 fans in Brisbane alone. This year Fletcher is hoping for a big turnout. Bedford Park will be filled with as many people as possible wearing red dresses and re-enacting the infamous Wuthering Heights music video by Kate Bush. The afternoon will include practice runs of the song, an instructional introduction to the dance moves, and a chance to mingle and meet Kate Bush fans from all over Brisbane.
The original song and its accompanying music video was a number one hit in Australia in 1978. The song, famously dedicated to the novel of the same name by Emily Bronte, is noted for its extremely unique sound and its even more eclectic music video. The song launched Bush’s career and catapulted her into stardom The original music video features Kate Bush wearing a red dress while frolicking in a forest.
The price of the event is a small donation to cover the expenses of the day as with the rest of the donations being donated a domestic violence charity. The event will benefit non-profit DVConnect which is a 24 hour national sexual assault, family and domestic violence counselling line for any Queenslanders who have experienced, or is at risk of, family and domestic violence.
