The World’s Original Marmalade
Awards & Festival at Dalemain
Sat 28th February & Sun 1st March 2015

             

'Celebrating our 10th Golden Anniversary'

Sponsored by Fortnum & Mason, Paddington Bear and Mackays

Karen Jankel, daughter of Paddington author Michael Bond, said "Paddington is of course famous for his love of marmalade and so I was delighted to read that, following the recent worldwide release of his movie, sales of marmalade have increased both at home and abroad.  The movie, which has just been nominated by BAFTA for Outstanding British Film, shows several scenes of marmalade making and so I hope that it will encourage even more families to follow suit.  The Marmalade Festival is always an important date in Paddington’s diary and he looks forward to meeting fellow marmalade lovers again this year.”
