About seven or eight squads entertained at the hall, and as today their acts could be colourful costumes, dances or some local skit. Dancing usually went on until around 6am. Teas were provided in the hall by the Ladies Committee.
Musicians were usually Harry Tulloch, Geordie Sutherland, Geordie Tulloch and James John Tulloch who would have been paid perhaps 10/ for their night’s entertainment.
The cost of a ticket to Bressay Up Helly Aa in the 1930's would have been in the regions of 2/6.
There were no further festivals after 1934 as the hall which at that time was a Kirk Hall was not allowed to be used for the purpose.
However, the festival was re-established in 1962, after a public meeting was held the pervious year to gauge interest. Bressay Up Helly Aa has been held annually ever since.
