THE MARMALADE AWARDS - WHAT ARE THEY ALL ABOUT?
These quirky awards were founded in 2005 by Jane Hasell-McCosh with the initial idea of preserving, growing and widening one of the most British of customs – making marmalade. They have gone on to generate a following far beyond Jane’s wildest expectations and have humour and a life of their own, inspiring people from all over the world to get involved.
The Awards are centred on Dalemain Mansion; a Georgian stately home lived in by the same family for over 300 years, which also happens to hold a very rich archive of Marmalade recipes.
The Awards & Festival are sponsored by Mackays, Fortnum & Mason, and Paddington Bear. Business Supporters are Patteson’s Glass our approved suppliers of marmalade jars and Hudson’s Media. Festival Supporters are: Barclays, Epic Events, Rheged, Penrith Chamber of Commerce, Penrith Locally, Penrith Bid, Ullswater Steamers, Sharrow Bay, Inn on the Lake, The North Lakes Hotel, Eden FM and Eden Local and Cranstons.
To date the Dalemain Marmalade Awards & Festival have raised nearly £200,000 for Hospice work in Cumbria and around the world. The full homemade entry fees goes to Hospice at Home, Action Medical Research and Marie Curie in Scotland.

The MarmalAshes 2016 (part of the homemade competition)
In 2015 Great Britain won the MarmalAshes. But make no mistake the Aussies are on the war path and rallying marmalade from all over Australia to re-capture their prize in 2016. They have won three times and we will be facing stiff opposition. So if you think that your marmalade could be part of the winning team add an extra £2 to your entry to be considered and get your name entered onto the Dalemain wall of Fame.
The Australian team are already making their marmalade and preparing a team and you can see what they are up to by visiting: www.buninyong.vic.au/marmalade/marmalashes.htm.
