Collection Points

Thanks to our wonderful supporters, we are delighted to offer the following locations as collection points for the Homemade Marmalade Awards. Entries can be dropped off at any of the following collection points, according to opening times. Fortnum & Mason and Tiptree are also offering a ‘Marmalade Exchange’ so if you take your marmalade to one of these points, you will receive in return a jar of their delicious artisan marmalade!

Please note that the deadline for all collection points is 4th February, unless otherwise stated. Wrap your marmalades in a sealed box with the entry fee and completed entry form and take to the collection point. If you are delivering your jars to a Fortnum & Mason collection point, please note that your jars will be unwrapped prior to posting to Dalemain.
