Penrith Goes Orange - Marmalade Festival

17 Mar, 2018 - 18 Mar, 2018

To mark the start of its second decade, The World's Original Marmalade Awards and Festival features a brand new format this year. Festival founder Dalemain is now collaborating with Penrith town centre and Rheged to celebrate all things marmalade and much more across three locations.

While Dalemain will continue to host the marmalade judging and awards, join us in Penrith town centre on Saturday 17th March 10am-4:30pm for a fun-filled family day out.


Penrith Goes Orange!
Marmalade, bears and all things orange… put a date in your diary for Saturday 17 March 2018,
as Penrith celebrates the World’s Original Dalemain Marmalade Awards & Festival.
Penrith Goes Orange sees the town centre festooned in this brightest of hues and fizzing with
market stalls, music and entertainment. It’s quite simply the stickiest day out in Cumbria – for
humans and bears alike!     

This free event gives you a glowing opportunity to taste and buy marmalades from some of the
country’s best producers, along with quality artisan foods and crafts.
The event will also raise funds for the Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland, with lots
of opportunities throughout the day for the public to support this much-loved local charity
The town will be bursting with street entertainers, magicians, musicians, dancers and
storytelling, with special activities for bears, too.

No celebration of marmalade would be complete without the chance to try some of the winning
entries in the World’s Original Dalemain Marmalade Awards. The team from Dalemain will be
on hand with a display that promises to bring a little taste of the mansion to Penrith.
