“Ayr is rich with ghoulish history and folklore, and it’s also rich with incredible talent!

Tamfest is so important. It’s a celebration of Ayr’s remarkable history and heritage, a showcase of the world-class talent that Ayrshire produces, a marketplace of vendors of high-quality products originating from Ayrshire, and the ultimate Halloween party!

Seeing the whole of Ayr come together for Tamfest every year is a magical experience and so important for such a tightknit community. The quality of the performances at Tamfest each year can only be surpassed by the quality of the audiences who always show up in force to support Scotland’s Tam o’ Shanter festival. I’m absolutely certain Rabbie Burns would be proud to see what joy and togetherness his work has led to!

I’ve been performing at Tamfest since its very first year and I’m beyond delighted to have been asked to be a patron. It’s my very real pleasure to show my support for this marvellous, unique, and truly magnificent festival!

Everyone loves a ghost story. Everyone loves a spine chilling tale. Everyone loves Tamfest!”
