Out on the wiley, windy Octagon in Dunedin are Terry MacTavish (left) and Theresia Nel, at the Southern Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever on Saturday.

The event celebrates Kate Bush's 1978 hit Wuthering Heights and features red-clad participants recreating its music video.

Organised and led by Dunedin mayoral candidate and Waitati identity Mandy Mayhem-Bullock, more than two dozen participants, young and old, acted out Bush's unique, expressive choreography to a recording of the song.

The hit was inspired by Emily Bronte's gothic tragedy of the same name and draws on dialogue from the novel's Catherine Earnshaw. Similar events are held around the world.
