Founded by Normski, and later joined by Mash who became co-resident, Burn started life as the original ‘Trade Night’ where club and bar staff could go after a weekend of working. Running every Monday since 1995, the event began at Volcano and later The Apartment, before finally moving to their permanent home at The Buff Club.
Over the years, Normski and Mash have hosted parties with Joey Negro, Mylo, Groove Armada, Todd Terje and many more, proudly playing house music all night long, while the likes of Blondie, Dizzee Rascal and Chic have all passed through the doors.
“When we started this there was no late night bars, no internet, no reality TV - nothing to do on a Monday night for the trade staff that had been working all weekend" said Normski via a statement on Facebook.
"We brought a bit of the weekend clubbing to a Monday night. This ‘Trade night’ idea has been copied by many a club trying to cash in. We invented Mondays."
"It has been a blast and we are delighted that an excuse to go out and play tunes and get melted on a Monday has lasted so long!”
Burn host their last party at The Buff Club next Monday (28th November).
