Dalemain will be open with a full display of all the marmalade entries in the state rooms, as well as hundreds of Artisan marmalades from all over the world available to taste, Marmalade demonstrations, Question Times with the experts and an array of marmalade inspired delicious food in the Great Barn and Medieval Hall Tearoom.
