The tradition of Up Helly Aa has been alive in Bressay since the early 1930s, although the festival has not run annually since then. The first festival was held in 1930, and only a few details are known about it: the first galley was constructed at the (fish processing) factory, and consisted of a painted Shetland Model, with a tail and head added.
Its committee said on Sunday: “The Bressay Up Helly Aa committee regretfully announce the postponement of the 2021 Bressay Up Helly Aa. “Given the ongoing uncertainties surrounding the global coronavirus pandemic, we have taken the unanimous decision to postpone the festival for a year, in the hope we can return to a more normal way of life in time for the 2022 event.”.
James, who has been on the Bressay Up Helly Aa committee for ten years, kicked off the day alongside his squad at the Speldiburn Cafe for some stomach-lining grub. The Vikings are being let loose on the Shetland mainland during the morning as they visit the Bell’s Brae Primary School and the ASN department of the Anderson High School.Nesting and Girlsta Up Helly Aa Please note that Nesting and Girlsta Up Helly Aa 2021 is cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
