The culmination of Up Helly Aa’s evening procession is the burning of the galley. This year’s galley was named “Breckon”. The galley builders’ craftsmanship and attention to detail is quite amazing. Fortunately there’s always a galley on display to the public at the Up Helly Aa Exhibition in the Galley Shed, St Sunniva Street, Lerwick (see www.uphellyaa.org for opening times).
