Entries for the 2019 World’s Original Marmalade Awards Homemade Competition are now open! If you would like to enter the Awards, you can DOWNLOAD THE ENTRY FORM HERE.

The Homemade Marmalade Awards have always been the heart of the Dalemain Festival, and we can’t wait to receive your jars for 2019. The competition is open to all amateurs and we have received entries from all over the world, including Australia, Lebanon, Brazil and Canada to name but a few. All Homemade entries are judged by our wonderful WI judges and the full entry fee goes directly to palliative care charities; so far we have raised over £220,000 for hospice care and with your help we hope to raise even more in 2019. So get your pans out and send your jars to Dalemain by 8th February 2019!
