On Saturday, July 13, Kate Bush fans and impersonators will be taking to the streets and parks of the Bega Valley as part of the global event The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever.

This year's group will be hiring a bus that will be touring to Bega, Tathra Headland, Merimbula and back to Bega again.

Anybody and everybody is welcome to join the Kate Bush party bus.

Since 2013, this event has been held annually in July in various locations around the Australia and world, where participants recreate the music video for Kate Bush's 1978 song Wuthering Heights.

It has become a symbol for standing in solidarity against violence towards women.

It is an inclusive event, and anyone and everyone is welcome to adorn themselves in red and join the group.

There are several chances to learn the dance in a studio setting:

  • Tuesday, June 25 from 6pm at Funhouse Studio, Bega;
  • Sunday, June 30 from 11am at Funhouse Studio, Bega;
  • Tuesday, July 9 from 6pm at Funhouse Studio, Bega; and
  • Thursday, July 11 from 3pm at Navigate Arts, Tanja.

There are also tutorials available on YouTube, or you can just throw yourself in and follow along on the day.

The approximate timetable for July 13 is:

  • Old Bega Racecourse, 10am;
  • Tathra Headland, 11.15am;
  • Merimbula, 12.15noon; and
  • Littleton Gardens, Bega, 1.45pm.

To join in or watch at any of these locations is free, but tickets are available to join the bus and can be purchased here.

Any profits from the bus ticket sales will be donated to the Domestic Violence Council in Bega.
