At Another Place we’ll be celebrating with our own Living Space marmalade cocktail – The marmalade martini

Dalemain remains the heart of the Awards, with the ceremony taking place on Saturday 16 March at 10am in front of the house. Judging takes place from 16 February with entrants from all round the world. There will be one homemade marmalade maker to take the accolade of ‘Double Gold 2019 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 Mansion will also be open on Sunday 17 March with more tastings and demos, and the Marmalashes will be judged on 17th in the public rooms – so come along to see which country will be victorious! The Commonwealth competition will also be judged on the 17.

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