Fat Out's Burrow announce one last party

The Burrow's residency at Manchester's Islington Mill ends in June, opening up space for newcomers

After a two year residency at Islington Mill, The Burrow has decided to part ways. “Islington Mill offered for us to continue our residency,” state the organisers, “and it wasn’t an easy decision for us not to carry on (one we toyed with for the best part of a year). We have decided to hang up our hats and close The Burrow chapter at the Mill, but not without one fucking massive final party.”

Fat Out still plan to host shows however, with energy focused on their Fat Out Fest, which they’ll be continuing. In the meantime Islington Mill are looking for new candidates to fill the space, alongside others that have recently become available. An open night will be held on 22 June (email for more details).

The Burrow's Final Smoke will take place on 19 August.
