Artist's Description

A beautiful glow lights up the former St Ringan’s Church, now the home of the Shetland Library as the 2009 Up-Helly-Aa procession gets underway in Lerwick, Shetland Islands, Scotland.
Featuring nearly 1000 torch-bearing guizers this annual fire festival, reckoned to be the biggest of it’s kind anywhere, takes place on the final Tuesday of January.
A 24+ hour festival of song, dance, street theatre, fire, music and feasting, accompanied by a few drams along the way Up-Helly-Aa is eagerly awaited by locals and an ever-increasing number of visitors every year.
Up-Helly-Aa is organised entirely by volunteers, most of whom put in a tremendous amount of time and effort.
If you’re planning a visit book early and don’t plan on doing much the day after….!!!
