The world has gone truly mad for Kate Bush.

The iconic singer has recently become a record-breaker thanks to a viral appearance in Netflix’s series Stranger Things.

The show used her 1985 hit Running Up That Hill throughout its fourth season, and now the song is sitting at the top of the singles charts, breaking three records in the process.

Kate Bush now has the longest-ever gap between number one singles (44 years between this and Wuthering Heights), as well as the longest time taken for a single to reach number one.

Those who have joined the Kate Bush fandom will be able to celebrate her in style with a dedicated club night in Manchester later this year.

The Wuthering Nights event will be taking over Gorilla on Saturday 8 October, as well as a venue in London.

Event organisers say: “Get ready to exchange the experience with hundreds of Kate Bush fans in the magical surroundings of Gorilla as we romp through Kate’s back catalogue with an overuse of smoke machines, visuals and camp re-enactments of Kate’s expressive dancing.

“Dressing up in your best Bush get-up is encouraged, slip on your red shoes, stick some ivy in your hair, raid the charity shop for that billowy dress and come and live out your inner Kate fantasy for us.”

There’ll be prizes handed out for the best-dressed people, plus free souvenirs (including, apparently, Kate Bush knickers).

Wuthering Nights will be hosted by DJs Christopher Dresden Styles (Pop Curious) and Beardre Barlow (Bollox).
