Virgin Trains welcomes visitors to the MarmaLake District

Published on : Saturday, March 18, 2017

unnamed (3)This weekend Virgin Trains is giving Penrith station an orange twist, as the Cumbrian town hosts the twelfth Dalemain Marmalade Festival and Awards.

Penrith station will be renamed ‘Penrith, MarmaLake District’ throughout the weekend of the Festival, and Virgin Trains teams will offer customers exclusive tastings of award-winning marmalades by Claire’s Handmade – a family-run business in Cumbria that make preserves and condiments by hand. To brighten up the station, orange and Paddington Bear themed artwork will also be on display.

This is the second year Virgin Trains has supported the Marmalade Awards, which take place at Dalemain Mansion, located a few miles from Penrith station. Last month, Virgin Trains helped to deliver marmalade entries by a Pendolino train, along the West Coast Marmalade Line. This is the first time in the history of the awards that entries have been transported by train.

Michael Byrne, Virgin Trains Station Manager at Penrith, MarmaLake District, said: “At Virgin Trains we’re proud to serve Cumbria and are pleased to once again play our part in celebrating the home of the Dalemain Marmalade Festival & Awards. We’re excited to welcome visitors to Penrith, MarmaLake District and give them a taste of what to expect when exploring the orange town.”

Visitors to the Dalemain Marmalade Festival, who are travelling by train, will be able to return to Penrith, MarmaLake District using the Orange Express shuttle bus.
