The 'Jam Festival' was established in 2013, an identifiable event that has the purpose of nurturing community pride in their rich history in food production. This is translated in many venues across the town covering a diverse programme of music, theatre and crafts and that includes as many different community groups as possible over 3 days.

Once again this years Festival was sponsored by both R&W Scotts and Ramsays of Carluke, two of our most important food ambassadors.

This years Jamboree event started with the new mini-procession from Hamilton Street to the Jamboree led by this year's Gala Queen Eve Grierson, accopmanied by the Wishaw and District Brigade Band, a Jam Themed Float created by Riversdie Nursery and accompanied by children from the nursery leading up to Ramsay of Carluke where the Gala Queen officially opened this year's Jamboree.

This year saw an expanded Jam & Ham Festivcal to include not only the mini-procession, but baking demonstrations by Brian Clark of Clark Bakers and a Chocolate Fountain in a new Marquree at Rankin Gait and the creation of the worlds biggest Empire Biscuit (twice as the first one was ate by a Shetland Pony).

However the star of the show still remains the Jamboree which included bake-offs, Jampionship competitions (judged by Brian Clark), the  Courtyard hosted local craft and food stalls where all visitors were serenaded from our Live Music Stage throughout the day.

We had baking and craft competitions that included every primary and nursery school in our area - all themed Jam & Ham. Our young people were also treated with free kiddie rides and face-painting.

Our local library team was exceptionally supportive in not only hosting their own event but also organising and displaying our nursery and primary school competition entries.

Carluke Jam and Ham Festival
The food/music theme continued through the whole 3 days, including an inter-school concert (350+ capacity sell out event), with 1,500 watching the show live on Facebook Live, a classical concert of music and theatre and two evenings of live music in pubs across town. There are many other small 'pop-up' concerts in both nurseries and retirement homes.
