Virtual Tamfest

For this year only Tamfest is going online and direct to your home!!

We didn’t want you to miss out on Halloween this year so grab your broomsticks, pumpkins and capes as we are going to bring you a TAMFEST VIRTUAL FESTIVAL direct to your living rooms! We will be working in partnership with South Ayrshire Council, who are kindly sponsoring the festival.

Please be rest assured we will be back next year. We will do our very best to put together an amazing festival for you in 2021! Thank you as ever, for your continued support.

Grado and Jane McCarry

We were delighted to announce Scottish wrestler and actor Grado for Virtual Tamfest!! Grado performed a hilarious version of Tam o’ Shanter that is not be missed!

We also welcomed Scotland’s most loved actress Jane McCarry (Isa – Still Game) to Virtual Tamfest. Jane performed at Tamfest in 2017 with actor Mark Cox (Tam – Still Game) for a hilarious and unforgettable performance. We are delighted to have her back again for what will no doubt be one of the highlights of Virtual Tamfest!


Tamfest is inspired by the Tam o’ Shanter poem by Robert Burns!

We are delighted that South Ayrshire Council has allowed us to share their new video of Alexander Goudie’s Tam o’ Shanter, a tale told in pictures!

Rozelle House is home to Scottish Artist Alexander Goudie’s magnificent series of paintings inspired by Robert Burns’ famous poem ‘Tam o’ Shanter’. This narrative cycle of 54 paintings was purchased by South Ayrshire Council with funding provided by the T.B. Hunter Charitable Trust, The Fraser Foundation and the Souter Foundation, and they are now part of our permanent collection. A selection of these works is on display at Rozelle House all year and you can see all 54 works in the video!
