The Big 60th Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2020)

Help us set a new world record at the huge 60th birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this year. As of last year we have a new area that will take that number of caravans and the show itself is a fantastic event that will not disappoint. There really is something for the whole family.

So put the dates 7th, 8th, 9th of August 2020 in your diary now and get those dates booked off work early. Be part of a record breaking event that will go down in history.

Show Address: Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ

Don't book direct with the show organisers, just contact me (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

Re: Stapleford Miniature Railway - August Bank Holiday weekend

Where is the photo of our lovely webmaster Matt on the phone in his Portafold? I thought it was a good photo and I'm sure people who haven't had the chance to meet you would like to see your face??

Come on Matt upload it.

Re: Portafold Windows

Hi, A friend of our's recently had some help putting up his Portafold with the result of a broken window, as some idiot climbed into the van to erect it. He has managed to get it replaced by some company in Petersfield - obviously too far away for you. Haven't had a chance to speak to him and just h...

Re: Introduce Yourself

hi I'm Vanessa (with hubby Mark) and we bought our portafold, Penfold, after seeing one that another member of our car club (TSSC) has and in fact bought it from a member from a different area. I wanted somewhere to shelter at the car shows we go to. We bought it to tow behind a Herald 13/60 convert...

Re: Door Hinge Colour

Ours were black but we think they were repainted. We have repainted them silver at the moment.
