Saturday 16 July 2016: The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever.
It was also a most delicious Winter’s day in sunny Melbourne.
The sun shone on the crowd gathered at Kings Domain as they shared a passion for the inimitable Kate Bush, her signature song and the strangely wonderful choreography that is part of the collective consciousness of those who love the song first heard in 1978.
I’m sure the organisers of TMWHDE were prepared for a day with wind and rain, after all the song begins with “out on the wiley, windy moors, we’d roll and fall in green…” but thankfully we enjoyed an amazing warm and still Saturday arvo with friends old and new.
What a beautiful day. Thanks to the organisers, participants and … Kate.
