Fortnum’s are proud sponsors of the annual Dalemain Marmalade Awards, and more specifically, the “Homemade” category. The Homemade category calls on marmalade makers - from well practised to complete novices - to create their own marmalade and enter the competition. The winning jar will be reproduced and stocked by yours truly, Fortnum’s.
Entrants can be from anywhere in the world - as long as they can send their jar of the homemade preserve to Dalemain directly or drop it off at Fortnum’s.
In exchange for every entry at Fortnum’s, makers receive a jar of our marmalade to take home. Entries can be dropped off until 5th February 2021 at our Lower Ground Food Halls in Piccadilly, and for the first time ever, at our K11 MUSEA store in Hong Kong (until 24th January 2021). Entries can also be sent directly to Dalemain during the same time period. Remember to fill in your entry form and include your £10 entry fee (per jar).
Usually, the awards take place in Dalemain - a country mansion in the North West of England - but in 2021, there will be a digital awards ceremony, announcing the winner on 20th June 2021, and the jar will hit our shelves for all to buy on the same day.
