The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever added the coastal town to its list of gatherings for 2019, with around 50 fans coming together to recreate her iconic 1978 music video.

Organiser Melanie Ruse said: "We are part of a worldwide Kate Bush day called the Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever and the entire reason is because it's silly and fun.

"It started off a few years ago with a theatre group in Brighton as part of a world record attempt to have the most Kate Bushes dancing to Wuthering Heights. They did it once and other people started doing it after that.

"More than 30 cities in the world from New Zealand and Australia all the way to Paris, Berlin, Boston, Atlanta and Toronto are doing it this year."

East Coast college students were also on hand to record the event on video.

Mrs Ruse said: "I put it on Facebook saying 'I want to do this, does anyone want to join in?' and dozens signed up, and we've got about 50 people here today.

"A lot of people have been practising the dance at home so they're already brilliant.

"The big wow factor is that when I put it on Facebook I got contacted by the KT Bush band, her original band, and they said they'd love to join in.

The spectacle also included a dancing 'Kate Bush' dinosaur.

Mrs Ruse said: "I've got bad arthritis and I need to use a wheelchair sometimes, so I was very clear I wanted this to be fully accessible for all ages, genders and abilities.

"I wanted everyone to join in, and I got a message asking if someone could bring their dinosaur.
