After HU4741 : Up Helly Aa (3) - the Galley. After nightfall the galley is dragged through the streets of the town in a torchlight procession. The torch bearers are the members of all the 'squads', led by the Jarl Squad. Each squad chooses a theme and dresses accordingly. The themes are very varied, some historical, some topical or satirical. Next HU4741 : Up Helly Aa (5) - the Circle Round the Galley
