We’re celebrating Christmas with a twist this December – join us for our 12 days of Marmalade, as we bring you amazing gift ideas, heart-warming stories and a behind-the-scenes look at the Marmalade Awards this Christmas.

The Seville Orange is stocked for an extremely short period of time in December and January, meaning that for us the yule season is inextricably linked to marmalade making. Want to bring a bit of that orange magic to your Christmas this year? Look no further…


They say that Christmas is all about giving, and that’s something we can definitely get behind here at the Marmalade Awards headquarters. So how does marmalade making spread Christmas cheer? In more ways than you may think. Not only is it a wonderful pastime to share with your family and friends (there’ll be more on that note on another #MarmaladeDay) but if you enter the Homemade Marmalade Awards this Christmas, you’ll be making a real impact for families all over the UK.

Hospice at home

Every penny of the Homemade entry fee goes directly to Hospice at Home Carlisle & the North Lakeland, and Marie Curie Scotland, incredibly important charities that need more support than ever over the Christmas period. Not only that, but you can choose to send your entry fee to the local hospice charity of your choice, meaning that hospice care all over the world receives a boost with every pot of gold that wings its way to Dalemain.

Marie Curie Cancer Care

Sound like a worthy cause? Then keep an eye out for Sevilles this festive season, and check out our fantastic list of categories. Have yourself a #DayofMarmalade and get creative! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
