Thank you to everyone who sent a jar of marmalade into this year’s competition. Despite coronavirus restrictions, postal delays and winter storms, we have received thousands of entries from all over the world! We are busy unwrapping and logging them, and we look forward to beginning judging as soon as it is safe to do so.

Winners will be notified once the judging has taken place, and the Awards will be announced at our Plant Fair as part of the marmalade Festivities on Sunday 20th June.

The Homemade Awards

The Homemade Award winner will be notified by telephone once the judging has been completed. We will also telephone the category winners, who will be invited to attend the Marmalade celebrations on 20th June. All other entrants are invited to attend the celebrations on 20th June where they can collect their results and certificates. Otherwise, all results and certificates will be posted to entrants after 20th June.

The winner will have the opportunity to see their marmalade produced by Award-winning small scale producers Thursday Cottage and sold by Fortnum & Mason in their iconic Piccadilly store. 50p from the sale of each jar will go to Hospice at Home. The full homemade entry fee from each jar entered goes towards supporting Hospice care, both in the UK and around the world.

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. People enter the Marmalade Awards from a wide array of countries including Australia, Japan, Colombia, Senegal, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Canada, India and Singapore. Any marmalade will be considered for the competition, as long as it is predominantly citrus, and we love to receive marmalades made from new and unusual citrus fruits and ingredients. 

The Awards & Festival exist thanks to the support of our generous sponsors: Fortnum & MasonThursday Cottage, Armstrong Watson, Wares of Knutsford, Lycetts and InkREADible.

We are also delighted to welcome a new sponsor for 2021 – Rathbones.

We have been trusted for generations to manage and preserve our clients’ wealth.

This is how we build enduring value for our clients, make a wider contribution to society and create a lasting legacy. Thinking, acting and investing responsibly.’

Festival Supporters include Barclays and Avanti West Coast.

To date the Dalemain Marmalade Awards & Festival have raised over £250,000 for Hospice at Home. In 2021 our key beneficiary is Hospice at Home Carlisle & the North Lakes. All the proceeds from the amateur entry fees go direct to charity.
