300 Kate Bush lookalikes break record with 'Wuthering Heights' video re-enactment

Fans gathered in a Brighton park to stage their version of the cult 1978 video

300 Kate Bush fans gathered in a park in Brighton over the weekend to break the record for the most lookalikes re-enacting the famous video for her 1978 single 'Wuthering Heights'.

Wearing red dresses, like the one Bush sports in the video, as well as black wigs, fans gathered in Stanmer Park on May 25 and staged their own version of the cult video, reports The Argus. Click above to watch a video of the group rehearsing.

The event was arranged by the group Shambush alongside The Ultimate Kate Bush Experience, who practised throughout the afternoon before staging their record-breaking attempt. Speaking before the event to The Argus, Emily Jenkins of the theatre group, said: "It is sure to be quite a spectacle. We are inviting as many people as possible to come along dressed up in red to re-enact the video. All you need to take part is a red dress, a sense of fun and willingness to join in and dance."

Earlier this year, Kate Bush received a CBE for services to music from the Queen at a ceremony at Windsor Castle. The singer made a rare public appearance to accept the accolade, issuing a statement which read: "I feel incredibly thrilled to receive this honour which I share with my family, friends and fellow musicians and everybody who has been such an important part of it all. Now I've got something special to put on top of the Christmas tree."
