Red is the colour for a day in homage to Kate Bush by the Kent coast

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - WHAT'S ON -

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
