Seeing red

About $800 was raised for mental health organisation Wellness, Empathy, Kindness Aotearoa (Weka) on Saturday at annual event The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever.

About 75 people dressed in red and filled The Octagon with dance in the exotic style seen in the music video for British pop singer Kate Bush’s song Wuthering Heights, which was a No 1 hit in New Zealand and a chart-topper around the world when released in 1978.

This year’s event was particularly special as it was held on Kate Bush’s 64th birthday.

The singer has been in the news recently due to her 1985 song Running Up That Hill returning to the top of music charts around the world due to it featuring in the latest season of Netflix television series Stranger Things
