In 2007, Cullivoe celebrated the 50th anniversary of Up Helly Aa. The celebrations took the form of a dinner dance in the hall on the 17th November. Speeches were heard from previous jarl's Robert Henderson & Laurence Tulloch, Up Helly Aa veteran Keith Nisbet and 2008 Jarl Leslie Tulloch. Many previous proclamations were on display around the hall. The night was a great success, and everyone is now looking forward to the 100th anniversay in 2057!
