On Saturday I participated in the 3rd annual ‘Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever‘ flash mob event up at Woodford in the Blue Mountains. I love this event. To me this is the perfect symbol of cultivating ‘Laughter, song and dance’ and letting go ‘being cool and ‘always in control'” … And the great thing is that they also raise money for Blue Mountains Health and Resource Centre.
This year there were about 60 participants including ‘Pterodactyl man’
What is the Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever?
The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever is an annual event in homage to the 1970’S British pop sensation Kate Bush and her 1978 hit Wuthering Heights. Originating at the 2013 Brighton Fringe Festival 300 ‘Kates’ performed Bush’s dance from the original clip in an open field. Since then footage of the event has gone viral. Since then the event has gone global with performances taking place in locations across the world ranging from Britain, Canada, Sweden, Israel, Atlanta to multiple locations here in Australia.
2018 is extra special as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of the single (and Kate’s 60th birthday at the end of July). This movement has captured the hearts and imaginations of people all over the world. It was held in over 20 cities including Berlin, San Francisco, Dublin, Copenhagen and 10 locations around Australia.
Big thanks to Georgina Khoo who is both the choreographer and organiser of the event this year. A lot of work goes into organising this and is much appreciated. Also thanks to all at the Woodford Academy who provide facilities, support and open the cafe for cake and coffee after.
