Posted: Why have I never heard of this? Did I miss the thread? Scotland, where you at?!?!
It's apparently Britain's Most Magnificant Fire Festival. The photos are amazing. As Dai would say "FIIIIIIIIIIIIRE!" Anyone have any good links?
I am furious that I was not informed of this event. Maybe all of you UK poi nerds were at a sock convention or something.
Well, shall we go? Yes, let's go. [They do not move.]

Posted: Yea I think I came across this at some stage while looking at hogmanay on the web. It seems to be part of the greater Hogmanay festival. There's a few other things on too which can be found here here
Hogmanay in Edinburgh on new years eve is deadly. Even if it was cancelled this year
I live in a world of infinite possibilities.

Posted: from what I've been reading about it just now, it doesn't look like there is much room for fire performers to just drop in - just a procession with torches and a big bonfire with stage performances (inside) afterwards.
part of my 'as many new years to so with fire i can get in one year' tour.(which incedentally was 4)
but theres no place for this side of fire performance. and to tell the truth if you were to try you would probably come out of it very badly
i recommend this tour itinerary:
dec31: stonehaven - massive fireball swinging jan 11: burghead - burning of the clavie(mental. more mental than any fire thiing i have eever seen) end jan - lerwick - uphellyaa may - edinburgh - beltane
and anyway NYC
i heard there were events of a performance nature in New York and YOU NEVER TOLD ME ABOUT THEM
when you send me a list of every event i might maybe enjoy in the states, i'll do the same for scotland. ok
