The 2019 Artisan Marmalade Awards are now closed!

Every year we receive hundreds of high quality preserves into the Artisan Marmalade Awards, and this year is no exception. Winning an Artisan Award denotes a marmalade of incredibly high quality and we look forward to announcing who will be the 2019 winner! All Artisan entrants should have received an email notification confirming the arrival of your entries and the names and categories entered. If you have not received an email, please contact Jane Holme at

All Artisan entries are judged by an expert panel and the Double Gold winners and selected Gold winners will be sold at Fortnum & Mason in their famous Piccadilly Store. If you have won a Gold Award, you will be notified by 8th March and invited to the Gold Award Winner’s reception on 15th March. All other Award winners will be notified by 14th March. All Artisan entrants are invited to attend the Festival on 16th March, where you will receive 2for1 entry into the Mansion to see the displays of marmalade and to collect your results – and, hopefully, your certificates!

If you are unable to attend the Festival then we will post your feedback and certificates to you following the event. If you are an international entrant and you have paid the postage fee, we will post your feedback and certificates. Otherwise, we will send these digitally, via email. As we are a small team we ask for your patience, but all certificates should arrive by the end of April 2019. If you have not received your results at this stage, please contact us at

  1. Seville Orange Marmalade (Fine, Medium or Thick Cut)
  2. Any Citrus Marmalade (Lemon, Lime, Blood Orange, Grapefruit, all other citrus)
  3. Reduced Sugar Marmalade
  4. Marmalade with Interesting Additions
  5. Marmalade with Alcohol

The Festival

The Awards ceremony will open the Festival at 10am, for what promises to be a marmalade extravaganza! There will be a farmer’s market, music, a human fruit machine, marmalade tasting, cookery demos, lectures and, of course, displays of all of the 2019 marmalade entries. The event is being supported by Penrith Chamber of Trade & Commerce, who will be running Classic Coaches between Dalemain and Penrith across the weekend.
