Up Helly-Aa 25 January 2011, Lerwick, Shetland

The largest and finest fire festival in Europe, where around 900 "Guizers" parade with this year's Guizer Jarl John Hunter as Johan Sanderrevet of Valsgärde, Sweden through Lerwick and on to the spectacular burning of the magnificent galley "Jägare". With video and images of some of the processions, visits, the burning and a taster of some of the guizers' acts, these pages give a flavour of this year's events.
