The World’s Original Marmalade Awards are back for their 13th year, and the competitions for 2018 are now OPEN! THE MARMALADE AWARDS – WHAT ARE THEY ALL ABOUT? These quirky awards were founded in 2005 by Jane Hasell-McCosh with the initial idea of preserving, growing and widening one of the most British of customs – making marmalade. They have gone on to generate a following far beyond Jane’s wildest expectations and have humour and a life of their own, inspiring people from all over the world to get involved. The Awards are centred on Dalemain Mansion; a Georgian stately home lived in by the same family for over 300 years, which also happens to hold a very rich archive of Marmalade recipes. The Artisan Awards promote small-scale marmalade makers using the open-pan method. Judged by an esteemed panel, these prestigious Awards put marmalade makers on the map, and winners can display their ‘Gold’ ‘Silver’ or ‘Bronze’ Award roundel on their jars, a huge marketing gift that declares their marmalade one of the best quality preserves in the world. The Homemade Awards can be entered by anyone, and there are categories from Children’s Marmalade to Merry (with alcohol), Camponologists, Any Citrus and many more, ensuring that no matter what kind of marmalade you make, there is a place for you! We update the categories every year, so click here for our 2018 list! The full homemade entry fee goes towards supporting Hospice care, both in the UK and around the world. The Awards & Festival sponsors include Fortnum & Mason, Thursday Cottage, Partridges and InkREADible. Festival Supporters include Barclays and Virgin Rail To date the Dalemain Marmalade Awards & Festival have raised over £200,000 for Hospice at Home. In 2018 the money raised from amateur entry fees will go to charities including Hospice at Home and Marie Curie Scotland. All the proceeds from the amateur entry fees go direct to charity. The 2018 Marmalade Awards & Festival will take place on 17th & 18th March 2018.

If you love walking in the great outdoors then this is the event for you. Take on 20 to 26 miles of stunning countryside. Walk alongside hundreds of other strong women. Raise valuable funds for research. THIS IS BEATING CANCER. The hike starts at The Langholm Estate, South West of Keswick on the banks of Lake Derwent. This dramatic location is surrounded by incredible views of the best loved Lakeland fells. From here the route joins directly onto the Cumbria Way, one of Britain’s most popular long distance footpaths which passes through some of the Lake District's most famous and spectacular scenery. This takes us through Langdale and Borrowdale valleys and approx 10 miles over the stunningly wild Stake Pass which climbs to just over 1,500 ft. The views either side of this pass are breathtaking and well worth all the effort. The Cumbria Way continues along Lakeshope Paths, ancient lanes and paths at the bottom of steep sided valleys.
