Cullivoe Up Helly Aa
Held on the last Friday in February at the Cullivoe Hall from 7pm onwards with the light-up at 7:30pm. The guizers, led by the Jarl's Squad, march the galley from the hall to the marina, before setting her alight and floating her out to sea alongside the Culli Voe breakwater. There are then performances in the Hall and School before the dancing begins, and merryment goes on till the early hours.
