The event was arranged by the group Shambush alongside The Ultimate Kate Bush Experience, who practised throughout the afternoon before staging their record-breaking attempt. Speaking before the event to The Argus, Emily Jenkins of the theatre group, said: “It is sure to be quite a spectacle. We are inviting as many people as possible to come along dressed up in red to re-enact the video. All you need to take part is a red dress, a sense of fun and willingness to join in and dance.”

Earlier this year, Kate Bush received a CBE for services to music from the Queen at a ceremony at Windsor Castle. The singer made a rare public appearance to accept the accolade, issuing a statement which read: “I feel incredibly thrilled to receive this honour which I share with my family, friends and fellow musicians and everybody who has been such an important part of it all. Now I’ve got something special to put on top of the Christmas tree.”
