Wuthering Heights Brisbane, Saturday 11 July 2020

Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever – Brisbane returns Saturday 11 July 2020. How you may ask? Well, we’re taking it ONLINE! From 2pm Brisbane, Australia time. Due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to host the Brisbane chapter in a park this year as we exceed the maximum number of people permitted. However, this won’t stop us from Wuthering in some way AND raising much needed funds for DVConnect.

Don a red dress and get ready to join us “virtually” via your smartphone, PC or laptop!  *We welcome you to film your afternoon dance and we will compile a montage after the day!**  The afternoon will comprise of instructional videos, run-throughs of the song with the music video PLUS we will finish the event with a video retrospective of nothing but Kate Bush!

WEAR: A red dress – as close to what is seen in the video as possible. We welcome you to film your afternoon dance and we will compile a montage after the day!

DONATIONS: You can donate here. All money raised in 2020 will be donated to DVConnect

Inspired by our Wuthermothers, Shambush, who first created and presented this event in 2013.

Thank you for your help, for everything you have done for me over the last few days. Your services are more than impressive and impeccable for anyone who may be in danger or in need of help of any kind. I may not be here today without your protection and the services you provided me. It is amazing to know there are people out there that give their absolute best to keep others safe, because they can and they care. Before making the call to you I felt too ashamed and far too proud to ask anyone for help. But now I feel strong knowing that I had the courage to put my hand up and ask for help. It saved my life!
