Thursday Cottage is delighted to sponsor of the Commonwealth Marmalade category at The World’s Original Marmalade Awards.

The marmalades have been made, most of the judging has been completed and all this effort culminates in two magnificent days of celebrating the world of marmalade at Dalemain Mansion near Penrith in Cumbria on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15th March 2020. Pele from Thursday Cottage will talk to visitors and offering them tastings of T|C’s hand-made marmalades.

It is an outside event so please be prepared for Cumbrian weather in March – details on  They tell us there are lots of exciting activities in store, with thousands of marmalades on display in the mansion, and thousands more to taste in the Artisan barn. There will be marmalade lectures and workshops, cookery lessons, marmalade games, films, music and children’s activities. A delicious array of homemade refreshments with, of course, a special orange theme will be available. The town of Penrith will once again be ‘Going Orange’ with an array of orange windows and special offers.

Stimulating interest in marmalades made with different combinations of citrus fruits and with using marmalades as an ingredient will be a great talking point at Dalemain.
