Burke’s Backyard goes out with a bang

Burke’s Backyard has published its final edition – and is going out with a bang.

The 15-year-old magazine, co-published by Bauer Media (formerly ACP Magazines) and CTC Productions, will continue online as a website and YouTube channel, as well as in the form of a book series, but the March 2013 edition is the last magazine.

With the cover depicting a garden gnome with an axe cruelly smashed into his head, along with the headline “Axed! Our last ever issue”, the Burke’s Backyard magazine is not disappearing quietly.

Its closure was announced in December.

Don Burke, editor in chief and executive producer at CTC Productions, has thanked readers, advertisers, contributors and everyone who has worked on the magazine in his final editor’s letter.  

“I must again thank our readers who have been so generous and supportive and sent good wishes for our future activities,” Burke wrote. “We hope you will join us on our YouTube channel, the BBY website, Facebook, Twitter and other places as we move into the digital age. Hooroo!”
