Melbourne, It's Time to Make Kate Great
If, like me, you were around in the late '70s, you will most likely remember the huge success of English singer/songwriter Kate Bush, whose debut single Wuthering Heights topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks. Kate was just 19 when she shot to fame with this single.

Fast forward to 2013, 25 years on, and there is a gathering of 300 Kate Bush fans in a park in Brighton, England with the aim of breaking the record for the most Kate lookalikes to simultaneously re-enact the famous video clip of Wuthering Heights.

This gathering has sparked a worldwide frenzy of such events. At 2pm on Saturday 16th July, it's Melbourne's turn! All Kate Bush fans, tragics, wannabes and lookalikes, or those who have a strong sense of fun, are encouraged to be there on the day to see if we can smash the record. The venue is Fitzroy Gardens, Wellington Parade, Melbourne.
