Join us for a weekend of marmalade celebrations with demonstrations, talks, exhibitions and shows that will inspire you, your family and friends to take this classic British preserve to your heart.

The Mansion will be open with a full display of all the marmalade entries in the state rooms, as well as hundreds of Artisan marmalades from all over the world available to taste, Marmalade demonstrations, Question Times with the experts and an array of marmalade inspired delicious food in the Great Barn and Mediaeval Hall Tearoom.

Penrith will be Going Orange once again in 2018, and the ‘Penrith Goes Orange’ events will take place in Penrith town centre alongside the Festival at Dalemain. The whole town is preparing to go marmalade mad, with food markets, music and entertainment, including magicians, musicians, dancing and storytelling, as well as a visit from everyone’s favourite marmalade-loving bear! Visitors will also find quirky activities such as a teddy bear zip line, a marmalade trail and a whole host of orange windows, with special orange offers from lots of local residents! Whether you’re a fan of marmalade or not, this is a day to be enjoyed by everyone.

A FREE shuttle bus will run between Dalemain and Penrith Town centre throughout the day.
