You can read all about it here

Anyone got this on their list of things to do?

    My Uncle and 2 of his sons have been Guizer Jarl at this event. If you check out the crime drama series "Shetland", the Guizer Jarl in the epidodes taking place during Up Helly Aa is my cousin David :smile:

    I loved watching the TV series Shetland - how's that for a claim to fame, hey? I will try and find it and watch again @Parsman

    I am looking forward to returning next year.
