LATEST PRESS RELEASE & VIDEO: 'The Marmalade Awards & Festival Spreads Orange Rays Across Cumbria as the Tourist Season Opens'

Film maker Matt Sharman lives on the Dalemain Estate, and we were lucky enough to secure his services for this short film showcasing the Marmalade Festival.  Matt said “I’m really pleased to be able to contribute to the festival and its continuing success.  I specialise in remote location film production, whether it’s  farming system initiatives for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in Sub-Saharan Africa or documenting mountain expeditions in the Himalaya, so working so close to home, in the lovely Dalemain environment, has been a welcome change!" Matt’s work can be viewed: www.coldhousecollective.com
