Sydney Park - Community Flash Mob Dance, 12pm - 2pm, Free, Age: All
WUTHERING HEIGHTS FLASH MOB DANCE EVENT
No need to register - just turn up!
Don't know the dance? You can follow along!
All ages and genders welcome :)
On July 13, people all over the world will be gathering in major cities and windy moors in their prettiest red frocks. They will experience the whimsical joy that is the 1978 Kate Bush masterpiece, "Wuthering Heights". They shall dance freely and merrily, frolicking and bounding across the grasses.
Inspired by Shambush's 300 Brighton Kates in 2013, we hope to gather the most Kates ever, again, and re-create the Wuthering Heights experience en masse.
If you would like to join us, please bring:
- Unadulterated joy [mandatory]
- Kate Bush style gown [optional but ideal]
- A positive attitude [mandatory]
NOTE: this is a free event, no registration necessary
