Celebrity Judges For Bedford Park Festival
For the marmalade making and photography competitions
Cookery writer Lindsey Bareham and photographer Richard Bradbury - both well-known Chiswick residents - are to judge two of the Bedford Park Festival competitions this weekend.
The competition is sponsored by Marmalade Jewellery in Turnham Green Terrace, where entries should be submitted. The closing date has been extended to 6pm on Friday June 6th.
Lindsey is a marmalade-maker herself and says she made four batches this year after Waitrose started stocking Seville oranges. She's delighted to be judging the competition.
