SOMERSWORTH – For a fourth year in a row, northern New England's largest gathering of Kate Bush fans will descend upon New Hampshire's smallest city.
This Saturday, High Street in downtown Somersworth will transform into the enchanted forests of the cult-classic music video, "Wuthering Heights," by '80s British sensation Kate Bush.
In commemoration of Kate Bush Day, communities around the world will gather Saturday, July 13, adorned in red dresses and black scarves and perform her bewitching dance as seen in her now iconic music video.
Choreographed by Seacoast dance director Sarah Duclos of Neoteric Dance Collaborative, the event is free and open to all who want to participate – or spectate.
Participants of all kinds and of all skill levels are encouraged to dress up and arrive prior to 10 a.m. for quick dance instructions. The full performance will begin outside of Teatotaller at 11 a.m.
Interested participants can reach out to Teatotaller at firstname.lastname@example.org with their questions.
Last year’s event drew participants from Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont. Owner (and participant dancer) Emmett Soldati says of the event, “It’s a lot of fun. Most of our staff are hardcore Kate Bush fans and this is an extra way to celebrate her creativity and eccentricity.”
Videos from previous year's performances have garnered almost 2,000 views.

The event is free and Teatotaller will be playing Bush’s greatest hits all day in the café.
