Marmalade Festival 2021



We were so pleased to welcome visitors to Dalemain to celebrate the Marmalade Awards in 2021 in conjunction with our annual Plant Fair. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate the Awards, and the announcement of 9 year old Flora Rider as the Double Gold Winner. There was marmalade for sale, children’s activities, talks, lectures and a variety of stalls and nurseries. We can’t wait to celebrate again in 2022 – watch this space for more information. 


Sadly there will be no further marmalade celebrations in September, but you can visit our website shop for a selection of the 2021 Gold winners. Try the very best marmalades in the world this year!
