Kate Bush fans around the world celebrate Kate Bush dressed as Kate Bush

Kate Bush’s birthday was celebrated on Saturday, and when we say “celebrated,” we’re not kidding. Because across the world – from Uppsala in Sweden to Dunedin on New Zealand’s South Island – fans have come together for the annual event known as The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever.

Wuthering Heights’ Biggest Day was originally inspired by an event held at the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2013, and has grown into an international event, as “Cathys” gathers in parks and squares around the world, dressed as Bush was in the second of two videos shot to accompany the release of the first single The Wuthering Heights in 1978 (in the first video, she was dressed in white rather than red).
