More than a hundred Kate Bush fans join to re-create Wuthering Heights video

More than 100 Kate Bush fans gathered in Dublin’s Fairview Park for a dramatic group re-enactment of the singer’s iconic ‘Wuthering Heights’ video dance routine.

The song and video were megahits back in 1978, and are remembered fondly by fans around the world.

No more so than in Dublin, as hundreds donned red dresses and brunette wigs to join together and wave their arms, legs and bodies in tribute to the popular singer.

The event in its third year and has grown in popularity since first being launched.

All participants pay a fee of €5 which goes to Women’s Aid, a charity that offers help to domestic violence victims.

The Irish Independent were lucky enough to gain access to footage of the incredible spectacle, as men, women and children moved in unison to the famous Kate Bush song.

The performance is organised solely by volunteers, and many of those involved are returning participants.

Co-organiser Sinead Keane said: “What’s really amazing is people are coming back every year and knowing the dance. We’re building a real, brilliant community of people.”

Fellow co-organiser Joey Kavanagh: “There’s a curiosity and an appeal about Kate Bush – she’s a bit of an enigma. There’s something about the song that seems to have an enduring appeal.”

Take a look at the remarkable video for yourself, and see how many of the moves you can remember.
