'We don't burn our galley in a playpark...' scenes from the One True Up Helly Aa...
It was the Northmavine Up Helly Aa on Friday night, our local viking conflagration. Not on the same scale as the internationally-famed Lerwick festival, but less precious and a lot more (in my opinion) fun. And indeed, the galley is not burned in a playpark, but out there on the water - the only Up Helly Aa where that happens. It was a fine night and congratulations to Guizer Jarl John Scollay and his associates.
