DALEMAIN MANSION & HISTORIC GARDENS

Dalemain remains the heart of the Awards, with the ceremony taking place on Saturday 14 March at 10am in the central marquee. Judging takes place from 7 February with entrants from all round the world. There will be one homemade marmalade maker to take the accolade of ‘Double Gold 2020 Winner’ and have the chance to see their marmalade co-branded and sold by Fortnum & Mason.

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.

The Girl Guides and Pete the Juggler will be welcoming visitors. Meet Paddington Bear, who is looking forward to tasting as many marmalades as he can!

Try your hand at juggling in our workshops going on all day for grownups and children to learn the art of juggling, culminating in a great citrus juggling finale!

A free shuttle bus will run between Dalemain and Penrith Town centre across the weekend.
