Folkestone: The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever pays tribute to Kate Bush at the Harbour Arm

By Angela Cole

Red dresses and long, dark hair will be de rigeur in Folkestone this weekend. The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever will see the town taken over with Kate Bush fans, taking part in a global event where participants recreate the music video for Kate Bush’s 1978 Wuthering Heights.

It all started out in 2013 with Shambush! in Brighton, which attempted to set a world record for the most number of people dressed as Kate Bush in one place.

It caught on - and now events are held around the world.

This year Folkestone is joining in for the first time on Saturday, July 14 and will be the first town, rather than city, to take part.

The aim is to have fun and raise money for charity, while honouring the hit singer.

The day will be held on Folkestone Harbour Arm with those taking part getting a run through at 11.30am, with the performance itself at noon.

Dancers will lead the way at the front, and fans are urged to wear red dresses and be familiar with the routine. To join in, register online at eventbrite.co.uk.

For the more dedicated, there will be other practice sessions in a local dance studio. Organisers are hoping for around 300 people to join in and the day will be filmed.

The day will also raise funds for two chosen charities, rarechromo.org and livingwords.org.uk
