Break out your red dress and join hundreds of other Cathys for a Kate Bush extravaganza

In 2013, 300 Kate Bushes (or Cathys) gathered in the seaside British town of Brighton to re-enact that famous 1978 'Wuthering Heights' videoclip (below), red dresses and all. Then last year, diehard fans – women and men of all ages – took to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne to do the exact same thing. The response was overwhelming; hundreds were involved, all of them swishing and twirling their way through the park in unison. 

Much to the delight of Melbourne's Kate Bush fans, the Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever will return in July – this time at Edinburgh Gardens next to the rotunda. 

The full schedule for the day can be found on the Facebook event page. There'll be warm-ups with dance teaching sensation Anna Go Go, lunch from Mr Burger and Taco Truck, and your emcee for the day will be hilarious Melbourne comedian Geraldine Hickey. The dance itself will take place at 3pm, but rock up at 12pm for all the pre-game rehearsals and fun.

Start shopping for red fabric and black belt; it gets cold on those wiley, windy moors.
