Norwick Up Helly Aa was on the 2nd of March 2013. The Jarl was John Laurenson and he comes from Edinburgh. He is a builder and his company has helped to tarmac the areas for the trams. He is originally from Unst and still has lots of relatives on the island.
There were 90 guizers this year. They marched from the Floggie road to the burning site at Norwick beach. The weather was nice and this made it good for people watching. Then all the guizers went to the Haroldswick Hall for the acts on the stage, supper and a dance.
