Proudly supported by Fortnum & Mason, Mackays of Dundee, and Tate & Lyle®

The 2017 Marmalade competition is now closed, and we would like to thank the thousands of people from all over the world who sent us their precious pots. We received over 3,000 entries from over 30 countries including Australia, Japan, the Bahamas, Bhutan and the Czech Republic, and have now raised well over £200,000 for Hospice care in the UK and around the world. We are delighted to announce that the 2017 Best in Show was Shona Leckie, with her ‘Marmalade with a Twist’ – Seville Orange marmalade with Tate & Lyle Treacle. You can purchase the winning marmalade from Fortnum & Mason or at the Dalemain shop. To see a full list of the 2017 winners, please Click Here.

We would like to thank Fortnum & Mason, Mackays and Tate & Lyle for their generous sponsorship, without which the Awards would not be possible. We would also like to thank the Japanese Ambassador for attending the Awards & Festival, and for his kind words. For more information about the Ambassador’s visit please Click Here.

The 2018 Marmalade competition will open in December 2017, so watch this space! The Awards & Festival will take place on Saturday 17th March 2018. If you would like to join our mailing list please email marmalade@dalemain.com.

Thank you to everyone who has sent us a precious pot of gold. You help us both to celebrate this most important of preserves, and to raise even greater amounts for hospice work and other charities around the globe. We hope to see your entries in 2018!
